No Library Card Reimbursements in FY 17-18

The voter approved FY 17-18 budget eliminated the library card re-imbursement line item, and shifted those funds to a recreation line item in the hopes of funding one or two town wide events open to all.  Library card re-imbursements will no longer be offered beginning at the start of the next fiscal year, July 1, 2017.  Both the Richmond and Waterbury Libraries have been notified of this change. Remember, you can always take a book, leave a book, 24/7 at any of our seven BOLLs! See the BOLL map  here.

Welcome to the Town of Bolton, Vermont


Town of BoltonWelcome to the Bolton, Vermont website.

The town of Bolton is located in the western foothills of the Green Mountains, on the eastern edge of the Lake Champlain Valley. The Winooski River bisects the town from east to west, as does Interstate 89, the New England Central Railway and U.S. Route 2.  Chartered in June 1763, Bolton is a small rural municipality that prides itself on many unique aspects: we are a tight-knit community with acres of forested land bisected by recreational trails, majestic ridge lines, rugged rocky outcrops, and valley-bottom cropland, all tucked in between working landscapes and our beloved Green Mountains.
