Check the Vermont State Colleges libraries' catalog to locate or request books. The Castleton library doesn't own all of the books on the best books lists, but if there are some you think we should purchase, let us know. To borrow an item owned by the Johnson, Lyndon or Hartness libraries, click on "Place Request (Castleton)" and log in.
Links will be added as the list from that publisher is announced.
