    Due to the deteriorating road conditions, the Pierson Library will be closed Friday, November 16th. We plan to re-open at 10am on Saturday.

    $1 = $4 through November 15th

    We have recently received two generous offers that have the potential to quadruple your donation if you act by November 15, 2018. A generous donor will match all gifts made by that date, up to $75,000; then, a second  generous donor will match your doubled gift, to quadruple your initial gift. Donations made after November 15 will be gratefully accepted but will not be eligible for matching through this campaign.

    Ways to Donate:

    At the library front desk, Field House location, 166 Athletic Drive

    Groundbreaking Ceremony Scheduled!

    Demolition has begun!

    The New Library and Town Center project is underway in Shelburne!

    The building that most recently housed the Pierson Library is no longer. Demolition is expected to continue through next week. If you would like to stop by, please remember this is a construction site and stay outside the barriers. Photographs will be posted on the Library webpage and in the Shelburne News as deadlines permit.

    Town Hall will not be accessible to the public until the Grand Opening next summer.

    Please watch for regular project updates on FPF and be sure to sign up for regular email updates at the Project website: http://www.shelburnetowncenter.org/

    Thank you for your continued support of the project!
