Accessibility Project

9/2/2021 An update from the Castleton Free Library Board of Trustees, chairperson, Nancy Mark:


The survey has been completed and is in the hands of the lawyers for their review and hopeful approval. The survey shows some property line adjustments between the school district and the library. These adjustments would allow for the pathway to the rear of the library to be on library lands.
In addition, Tom O’Brien, the architect for the project, has submitted to Vermont state officials the necessary construction drawings for the addition. I will keep you posted on additional information and progress as soon as I receive it.

4/2/2021 New preliminary drawings for the elevator project have arrived! We are still awaiting a start date but we anticipate we will be breaking ground some time this summer…. stay tuned!

12/14/2020. Great news to share! Thanks to the hard work of our trustees and town administrators the library has received three grants totaling $130,000.00!

It is an exciting time at the Library! The Board of Trustees of the Castleton Free Library have begun the process of making the entire library wheelchair accessible. With a generous donation from the Friends of the Castleton Free Library and The Denise Nangle Estate plans have been created by architect Tom O’Brien. We are in the process of applying for grants to help with the cost. Come back to this page to see our progress!
