The following online resources are available for free to patrons of the Goodrich Memorial Library. You must have a valid library card in order to use most of these services; some are available to all Vermont residents. Call or stop by the library for more information.
Driver Education Program
The Goodrich Memorial Library announces a partnership with Driving-Tests.org, a company dedicated to driver safety and education, to offer free Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) practice tests to library patrons. The new service includes free tests specifically based on the state’s DMV materials. It is the only site of its kind to include accessibility tools that let users hear selections read aloud, make them into MP3s, translate pages into other languages, magnify text, and mask portions of the screen for greater visibility on the practice tests.
The Vermont Online Library (VOL) offers a wide array of electronic information databases on myriad topics geared to a variety of age levels, for both generalists and specialists. The information is produced by known and trusted publishers and licensed by the State of Vermont from Gale Cengage Learning. These resources are available to you 24-hours-a-day from not only your participating local library, but your home, your office – or anywhere Internet access is available.
