Library Board Meetings
The Library Board meets the first Tuesday of every month at 6:00 PM. The meetings are open to the public.

Strategic Plan: From 2018 into 2019, the Library’s Strategic Planning Committee met with 13 community groups and several individuals to determine what matters most to the community it serves – primarily the villages of Pawlet and West Pawlet. From this information, three service priorities were established to guide the organization’s decisions about programming, funding, staffing and facility needs for the next four years. For more information, please see Strategic Planning Documents.
