The Pierson Library will be open today (3/15) for regular business hours (10-5:30). We look forward to seeing everyone – come on in!
Due to the weather, and the fact that the Shelburne Town Offices have closed, the Pierson Library will be closing today at 1:15 p.m. We apologize for the inconvenience – and hope to reopen tomorrow (Wednesday) at 10:00 a.m.! (We’ll re-post here if that changes.)
Have you been following the new Library Center project? Do you want to learn more about this exciting project? Library representatives will have a table at both of the Town Meeting events (Monday evening March 6th and all day Tuesday March 7th). Come visit us and learn more about the project and get a close up look at both the site design and the floor plans!
We can provide details about the town wide survey which will be mailed in March, and we’ll tell you how you can win one of 3 randomly drawn $100 cash cards just by mailing in your completed survey!

65 people have submitted videos telling what they love about the Pierson Library and how the Library has affected their life! We will edit them together to create a chorus of voices celebrating YOUR public library. Would you like to be a part? Though our original deadline was 12/15, we would love to hear from you! Please contact Library Director Lara Keenan if you would like to participate.
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)
