Your Library Card:
The purpose of the Pierson Library is to provide citizens with access to the educational, cultural, recreational and research benefits of a free public library. One of the best ways to enjoy all that the Pierson Library has to offer is by getting a library card.
All residents of Shelburne — defined as anyone who pays business or property taxes to the Town of Shelburne or who rents property in Shelburne — are eligible to register for a library card, which must be renewed every two years. Parental permission is required for all children up to age 18.
To obtain a library card, bring proof of Shelburne residency or business ownership to the Library during Library hours. Proof of residency includes, but is not limited to, a driver’s license, rental agreement, or piece of mail with your current Shelburne address.
It is important to note that the Pierson Library has placed loan limits on certain materials; please ensure you do not exceed these limits. Fines are not charged for overdue materials; instead, there is a box on the circulation desk for optional donations.
