Grand Opening Celebration Saturday, September 14th

Join us from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for a ribbon cutting ceremony, live music, ice cream from The Scoop, games, and tours of the New Pierson Library and renovated
1927 Town Hall. We’re so excited to welcome you to our new home! 

Note: library will be closed Thursday, September 5th through Friday September 13th as we move everything to the new location. If you would like to help out as a volunteer during the move, please call the library at 802-985-5124 to sign up for either a morning or afternoon shift, with thanks!

So, what’s new?

We’ll still have all the books, story times, newspapers and great staff you’ve come to expect, but there’s a lot of “new” that we hope you’ll find exciting, including:

 Several new meeting spaces available for reservation and drop-in use

 A new home for the Shelburne Historical Society, lower level of Town Hall

 Dedicated space for young adults

 Expanded computing facilities and reading/working spaces

 A new program for kids most Saturday mornings

 2nd Wednesdays—a marquee monthly cultural program for adults—every 2nd Wednesday evening from October through May.



Bond Vote Statement

The Library Building Steering Committee wants to extend its appreciation to the residents of Shelburne, the Library Board of Trustees, the Selectboard, Vermont Integrated Architecture, Neagley & Chase, the Fire Department, and everyone else who has contributed to this project thus far.  We believe that the new library, renovations to the Town Hall, and municipal campus improvements will make Shelburne a better place for generations to come.  Much hard work still lays ahead and we look forward to the entire communities continued involvement.
