  • Construction Update!

    Construction Update
    The construction site is dug out and things are moving along. Some snow came in the new building during the storm but work was not impeded.

    Lately, a big topic for the project has been electricity. Meetings have been held to ensure that enough outlets will be installed in the right places. The Library has recently initiated a self-check-out interface (stop by and try it out!) and the Historical Society has received a grant to purchase a scanner for historical documents. These needs, and many others, are being considered as the electrician begins to finalize the wiring.

    In addition, the Committee has begun the process of interviewing companies who responded to the RFP for the new building to host a rooftop solar array. The Committee will soon make its recommendation to the Selectboard so that construction can be scheduled in coordination with the project timeline.

    As always, thank you for your support of this Town project

    Are you a Friend of Pierson Library?

    The Friends of the Pierson Library is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization made up of members dedicated to the library.

    The purpose of the Friends is to raise funds in support of the library which cover expenses that are beyond operating costs.  This includes funding for special programs, library materials and equipment, which enhances the community resource center.  The Friends also made $60,000 in gifts toward the new library this year!

    In addition to membership dues, the Friends raise funds through an annual book sale (next one will be this Fall!) and an ongoing sale in the library.

    Meetings are on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 6:30 pm.

    If you are not a member of the Friends but would like to join, you can send a check to Friends of Pierson Library, 5376 Shelburne Rd., Shelburne, VT 05465.  Or pick up a membership form at the front desk of the library.

    Thanks for all you do, Friends!
