    "This is a great library for Burlington! This was my childhood library and one we've been going to as a family for years. Bright open space, lots of new and ongoing events, kind staff and a great selection!"

    "I'm so grateful for the summer reading program. The staff is always willing to help and get kids excited about book. My 9 year old has had a blast every time we visit, the passes you can checkout for echo, Shelburne Museum, etc. Are so helpful for a single mom. Thanks again for all the amazing experience!"

    "This library is wonderful, the staff is always friendly and the kids section often has many ways (aside from just reading) to keep you little ones entertained. Head here on a rainy day you will not regret it."

    "After being cooped up in the stroller downtown for most of a Saturday afternoon, we headed into Fletcher Free Library for a change of pace. They have a nice children's section with a great selection of books for every age group. There are tons of toys, blocks and puppets to play with, too."

    "This is a great library with the best kid selection around- and Robert and Gigi singing was a fun attraction! Unfortunately they don't reciprocate like all of the other towns do. You need to buy a library card if you aren't from Burlington."
