With our new automation system, Catamount Koha, automatic email notices are generated for materials on loan from the library. Some patrons emails have been returned as undeliverable. Some email accounts have stops on automatically generated email notices. Please check to see if this is the case. If it is, would you add us to your contacts so you will get these notices?

Thank you,
The Staff

Our Motto


"Preserving the Past -- Building the Future" continues to be our guide. The core collection, including the Vermont and Civil War Collections, maintain our links to the past, while computers, Internet access, Listen Up! Vermont (audio books and ebooks), Vermont Online Library (reference services), Universal Classes (online courses) and the purchase of new materials guarantee our growth into the future. The community has acquired an outstanding asset available to all. Come and take advantage of its many offerings.


Our Mission


The Morristown Centennial Library’s mission is to further our community’s commitment to literacy and broad public access to information, sharing the advantages and joys of reading and lifelong learning with as many members of our community as possible. To achieve this mission the library is dedicated to providing a comfortable and welcoming environment, offering high quality services and programs that are responsive to our community's wants and needs and honoring patrons' rights to privacy, confidentiality and intellectual freedom.

Current and Coming Events

Hello from MCL. Summer is here! Beginning June 20th and extending throughout the summer, Morristown Centennial Library presents our Summer Reading Program.

Superheroes

This year, the overarching theme is Superheroes. For children, the premise behind our events is Every Hero Has a Story. For teens, it will be Unmask; for adults, Escape the Ordinary. We have super stuff going on all summer!

Beginning on Tuesday June 9th, stop by to pick up a copy of our brochure and sign up for the events you want to attend. We have programs for children up to age 12, events for teens 13-18, happenings for adults 18+, and a couple of intergenerational offerings.

**So that we may plan events and provide adequate space and materials, registration will be required for all events. It only takes a minute or two! Thank you for your help. **
