Ms. Lee introduces our virtual "Stories for Children" series.  Each week a different children's library book is showcased and a link to the book being read online provided.  This service is found both on this website and on the Library Facebook page.


  • Annual Book and Plant Sale: Second Friday and Saturday of May

  • Summer Read Program: Check out the Youth Page for Information about "Ready, Set, Read"

  • Carmel Days: First weekend in October - Enjoy our home-made pies!

  • Community Tree Lighting: Each year the Library joins with the Carmel Historical Society to host a community Tree Lighting on the first Sunday in December.  

  • December is Book Amnesty Month!  If your books are over due, all fines will be forgiven if the book is returned along with a donation of non-perishable food.  All food is donated to a local food bank. Help the Library by returning the books so others may read them and help your neighbors as well.


  ENJOY THE GREAT OUTDOORS WHILE INDULGING IN A BOOK.  Closed for the winter after a successful 2021 season.  Thanks for all who walked and read and also to the Town of Carmel and Carmel Recreation Department.  Opened in Carmel in 2017 due to the efforts of past librarian, Becky Ames, who obtained a grant for the project. Recently a new sign painted by library volunteer, Kim Wohlgemuth, and new cedar fencing erected by the Town of Carmel was added to our StoryWalk®  Entrance.  The Story Walk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle and Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. Storywalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.
