Shelburne Library News


Shelburne Market Bags… YOUR Library Supports Green Thinking. The “Green Thinking” reusable bags will be available outside the Library, and you can fill it with wonderful fresh produce, baking, etc., at the market. Our volunteers are busy sewing up the bags with fabric donated by community members. YOU can get involve by donating some fabric or a few hours to help with sewing, cutting out, or pressing a few seams; we`d love to have you become part of this community initiative. Help us reduce the number of plastic bags that are adding to the pollution of our environment. YOUR Library is the heart of the community. Call 925-2168 to join the ironing, sewing and production group.

Teen Scene:

Our TAB members met to decide on the line up for 2018's Teen Summer Reading Club, and we are so excited about many of the events this summer! Needless to say this summer is going to be very creative, and Teens will probably want to wear old clothes to most of our events to prevent ruining their favourite clothes! Keep an eye out for our calendar which will be released shortly. We will also be running our Study Hall sessions this month where Teens are invited to come study in a quite space for exams. Light refreshments will be provided.
