Your story is our gift! #GivingTuesday

Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone, and here we are on #GivingTuesday, a day when we are all encouraged to kick off the holiday season with an act of giving.

While we certainly welcome your financial gifts this holiday season and all year long (see the “Donate” button on the left-hand side of our website), we also welcome the gift of your story by participating in our Tribute video montage for the Pierson Library.

Our video montage consists of patrons answering two questions in a short 30-60-second video: What is your favorite thing about the Pierson Library? How has the Pierson Library affected your life?

It doesn’t cost anything and only takes a minute, filmed with your cell phone or computer in any setting. Just click here to get started.

Need help with ideas for your video or technical assistance?  We’re here for you!  We want to collect videos from as many Shelburne community members as possible by December 15th to create our montage. Please feel free to contact Library Director Lara Keenan with questions! (985-5124)
