Book Sale this weekend! The highly anticipated Friends of the Pierson Library Annual Book Sale is now just days away on Saturday, October 6 from 9 am-5 pm and Sunday, Oct. 7 from 10 am-3:30 pm in the Shelburne Town Gym. How are you spending those last few waiting days? Here are a few suggestions. 1) Make a plan. Are you looking for a few good novels? Planning to take a trip any time soon? Then you’ll definitely want paperbacks for easy packing. 2) Make a list of your favorite authors so that you’ll have them in mind when you make your way down the long tables of books. 3) With thousands of items to choose from, we know you’ll want to bring a sturdy bag to carry your purchases. 4) Lastly, don’t forget comfy shoes. With all that time standing on your feet and taking time to browse your choices, your feet will thank you.
And remember that we currently have a freeze on all book donations until November. Thank you for all your great donations throughout the year.
Looking for something Spooky to read? With Halloween just a few weeks away, stop by and check out our October featured book display located next to the new book stacks. You’ll find more than a few scary stories and movies. Why not make it a family event? Find a picture or chapter book with a Halloween or mystery theme to read-aloud at home. We have great mysteries and scary stories for all ages and interests. Not to mention our great selection of DVDs that that will get you into the Halloween spirit on a dark and stormy night. There’s nothing scarier than having nothing to read! Don’t be afraid to ask a staff person or library volunteer to help you find something.
New Movies: Speaking of movies, Pierson Library has lots of new titles available for your at-home movie watching pleasure. There are lots of newly purchased old favorites and classic titles in both the children’s room and in our upstairs movie section as well.
