Absolute Science videos will be shared on our website and Facebook at the designated time.
For the health and safety of our community members the Vermillion Public Library will continue to operate a pick-up at the door only service during June. We appreciate everyone’s patience and perseverance during this unusual time.
Starting June 1st we will have one public access computer available for use in 30-minute sessions by appointment only.
Staff are available from 8 am to 6 pm Monday through Friday to answer the phone and respond to emails.
Remember, the Library has many digital services available to you for free. If you need assistance accessing our electronic resources please contact us.
We will continue to closely monitor developments pertaining to COVID-19, commonly referred to as Coronavirus. We encourage community members, especially those in high-risk populations, to stay away from public spaces. If you are feeling ill please avoid contact with other people. Social distancing is one key way to slow the spread of the illness. Please keep in mind, as a public space, the Library cannot guarantee germ-free physical materials. You need to consider if using library materials is best for you and your family.

The theme for the 2020 Summer Reading Program is Imagine Your Story, which celebrates fairy tales, mythology, and fantasy.
This year we are introducing a new Summer Reading Program resource: READsquared! This digital reading program is designed to allow families to record their summer reading virtually through the website or app.
You can register as a family or as individuals. Registering as a family allows an adult to log their children’s reading more easily, without needing to log out and back in for each child. To register as a family you will need to register an adult first.
Summer Reading Guidelines:
Pre-K 2020 Summer Reading Program: Designed for non-readers, birth through kindergarten. Read to them five days a week for at least 15 minutes a day to complete the Summer Reading Program within the 8-week time frame and get a prize!
Kids 2020 Summer Reading Program: Designed for kids scheduled to go into kindergarten through 5th grade this fall. Have them read five days a week for at least 30 minutes a day to complete the Summer Reading Program within the 8-week time frame and get a prize!
Teens 2020 Summer Reading Program: Designed for those readers who will be going into grades 6 through 12 this fall. Read for 40 minutes a day, five days a week to complete the Summer Reading Program within the 8-week time frame and get a prize!
Adults 2020 Summer Reading Program: For readers 17 and older.
Note: As this is our first year using READsquared for the Summer Reading Program, there might be some bumps and bugs to work out along the way. Please have patience and bear with us as we work to get READsquared running as smoothly as possible!
Due to circumstances surrounding the pandemic, the schedule of programs for 2020 Summer Reading Program have been redesigned for virtual formats!
