Children’s Programming Schedule

The Vermont Golden Dome Book Award* (formerly the Dorothy Canfield Fisher Book Award) was created to honor excellence in children’s literature. Each year since 1957, Vermont students in grades four through eight have selected their favorite book from a list of nominees. It is recommended that students read at least five of the year’s nominated titles before voting. Voting takes place in the spring, generally beginning in April.

For more information, check out the Vermont Department of Libraries Website:


Dear Children and Parents,

Here at the Castleton Free Library, we are currently updating and reorganizing the Children’s Area.

The elevator project will impact services but we do not have a timeline for this yet. Please visit this site to stay updated.

No matter what, the children’s section remains open and we welcome visitors! We are still fulfilling requests, so don’t hesitate to contact us.

Stop by through the front door, or enter through the downstairs entrance to visit the children’s section directly! Books and movies continue to be available for checkout. Story hour will also continue throughout the renovation process, every Friday morning at 10:30am.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Red Clover

The Red Clover List is Vermont’s own children’s choice award for books aimed at kindergarten – third graders. To create the list, a committee of librarians and teachers nominate just ten of the vast number of picture book and “young” non-fiction titles published that year. Voting by children for their favorite book takes place the following April. Click here for the list of nominees with annotations.
