Having trouble logging into your Listen Up Vermont! account, or KOHA?

The Athenaeum recently upgraded its network communication protocol.

Effective immediately, all patron accounts have the following format:

username: your library barcode [the 14 character alphanumeric code found on your library card that starts with 2VSPY]

password: your last name, case sensitive [you can change this default password when you login to KOHA]

Don't know your library barcode? Contact the librarians at the Athenaeum at 802-748-8291.

You will also need your library barcode and password to log in to Listen Up Vermont! to access our collection of thousands of downloadable ebooks and audiobooks.

If you find you are still not able to log in to Listen Up Vermont! using your updated login information, you may need to uninstall the Overdrive app from your device and then reinstall it.
