There are over 500 classes available in many subject areas such as arts and crafts, medical skills, finance, genealogy, personal care, animal care, career development and more! Each person is welcome to enroll in up to five courses at one time and will have up to six months to finish each course. Every course has a real instructor that can be communicated with via email.

There's a new service at the library: audiobooks and e-books that you can download to your own computer, MP3 player, iPod, phone, or e-book reader. And now, to your Kindle! www.listenupvermont.org
You can check out an eBook for Kindle just like you check out all your OverDrive materials. When you get to the final step you'll be directed to click on "Get for Kindle" link. You will then be directed to Amazon.com to redeem your public library loan. You may be required to login to your Amazon.com account -- or create a new account -- if you're not already logged in. Choose to read the book on your Kindle device, free reading app, or Kindle Cloud Reader.
You can read borrowed Kindle books on any generation Kindle device or all free Kindle apps, as well as in your web browser with Kindle Cloud Reader.
Note: Public library books require an active Wi-Fi connection for wireless delivery to a Kindle device. Library books will not be delivered via your Kindle's 3G connection. If trying to send to a Kindle device and do not have an active Wi-Fi connection, you may instead choose to load your library book via USB. Both Mac and Windows users can manage Kindle content through a USB connection.

Which e-reader to choose??
With so many devices coming out on the eReader/tablet market recently, sometimes choosing the right one can be a bit overwhelming. Thankfully there are charts out there that compare these devices side by side so that you can choose the right one for you.This link provides a nice comparison of the tablets out there, such as the iPad, Kindle Fire, and a couple different nook models. If you're looking for something a bit more advanced than an eReader, this chart is for you. The best part? All of these devices are compatible with Listen Up! Vermont eBooks!

The Vermont Judiciary and Legal Services Law Line of Vermont have recently launched a new interactive program to help self represented litigants fill out court forms. It’s called CourtFormPrep- Vermont Court Forms made easy!
The program uses A2J Author (A2J = Access 2 Justice) to walk the user through the forms, using plain English and simple questions to gather the information needed. It puts all the information together in the right place using a program called HotDocs, adds simple directions for filing, tells the user to print, and voila! They’re done. This program will be a huge help both to those representing themselves as well as those who have attorneys for a limited appearance.
Interviews available are:
- Filing for and responding to a divorce, civil union dissolution, and legal separation
- Filing for Parentage
- Filing a motion to modify or enforce child support
- Filling out the Financial Affidavits- 813A and 813B
Check it out! Links to this program can be found on the Vermont Judiciary Website and at www.vtlawhelp.org/CourtFormPrep.
