News from the Pierson Library

The weather in Vermont has never been very predictable, as the saying goes “wait five minutes, it could change.” While you’re waiting those five or 60 minutes it’s a great excuse to weed through books in your own libraries. The kids may have outgrown some or you may just have more books than space. The friends of the Pierson Library would love to take any books you would like to pass on to new homes. They are currently collecting donations of gently used fiction, nonfiction, young adult, and children’s books along with books on CD and DVDs for their annual book sale to be held on Columbus Day weekend in October. If you have any questions about times to bring in your donations or what can or cannot be donated please call the library at 985-5124.

The staff and trustees would like to thank the anonymous artist who left the message “books are the future” written in rocks. We love it and fully agree! If you haven’t seen it yet, stop by the library or check out the pictures on our Facebook page. While you’re checking out our Facebook page don’t forget to like it. It’s a great way to stay up to date on the day to day happenings at the Pierson Library. We are trying to get 250 likes by the end of summer to coincide with the 250th anniversary of the settlement of Shelburne.
