The Deborah Rawson Memorial Library is a 5,000 square foot building situated next to the Underhill I.D. School and close to the Brown’s River Middle School. It offers wonderful views of Mt. Mansfield from the main reading room complete with a fireplace, and also an outdoor sitting area and perennial garden to enjoy the view.
Together the library staff, board of trustees and volunteers strive to provide friendly and helpful service, and to offer a collection that meets the needs of the Jericho/Underhill community.
- All Jericho and Underhill residents are eligible to get a Deborah Rawson Memorial Library card.
- Children under 16 need a parent or guardian’s signature to get their own card.
- In order to keep our records up to date cards expire every three years. The expiration date is on each card.
