Just an FYI, you are not required by statute to provide UVM with a copy of your town report, though I am sure they would appreciate it. 24 V.S.A. § 1173 (https://legislature.vermont.gov/statutes/section/24/035/01173) requires town reports be submitted to the Vermont State Archives and Records Administration and your local municipal library. That said, if you have not yet sent your town report to VSARA please use the instructions posted here: https://www.sec.state.vt.us/archives-records/statutory-filings/municipal-reports.aspx

Just a reminder – even though it’s the wrong time of year – UVM’s Bailey Howe Library would still like to receive a hard copy of your town report. I didn’t send one this year because of the new digital archive procedure and I received the email below.
We just received the 2017 report for the town of Marshfield. Thank you so much for remembering to send this to us.
As for sending a message to the listserv for town clerks that the Bailey Howe Library at the University of Vermont would still like to receive a print copy of any town and village reports each year (that are still available in hard copy) for the Vermont Research Collection, that be great. The Wilbur collection is still mainly a print collection in the Dept. of Special Collections.
Weeeellll, since my daughter will be a freshman this fall and I am an alumna, I would be happy to!
All joking aside, I didn’t know the library still wanted copies. Clerks were told that we only need to supply a digital copy to the state archives. If you would like me to pass the information along to other clerks that you still want a copy, I could send a message to our listserve.
Do you have any use for extra copies of other years?

Greetings from the Bailey Howe Library at the University of Vermont. We normally receive copies of the Vermont town and village reports each year starting in March.
It looks like we have copies of Marshfield town reports dating back to 1927. Thank you for sending us copies of these reports through the years. As a permanent part of our Vermont Research Collection, they have been used to support several classes at UVM pertaining to VT State government, as well as other important research initiatives about Vermont’s local history.
If you still have a print copy of 2017 we would be grateful to receive it. Please send it to my attention at the address below. Alternatively, please advise if a print copy is no longer available.
