Shelburne Public Library shares new books, upcoming events

April 1, 2021   ·   0 Comments

The Shelburne Public Library is open 24/7 online, however, curbside will not be available from Friday, April 2, 2021 to Monday, April 5, 2021 inclusive. 

Staff will be back on Tuesday to fill all your holds and other requests.

Welcome Spring! The good weather makes it a little less tempting to snuggle down with a book but we suggest you keep checking as new ones are arriving frequently. Also watch our Social Media pages for exciting Children’s and Teen programming for the Spring Break.

Our objective is to provide you with the service you need during these times.

Exploring Birds:

David T. Chapman is back with another gorgeous presentation on the Birds of Ontario. Everything from the small backyard visitors that we all know and love, to some of the largest birds like the Bald Eagle and Great Blue Heron. Check out rare visitors to our area like the Painted Bunting and Northern Hawk Owl. This session is pre-recorded so you will be able to watch at your leisure on our YouTube Channel, starting Monday, April 5th, 2021 @ 12pm!

Teen Scene:

Teens painted gorgeous cherry blossom paintings this week by following along with our instructional video on our YouTube Channel. We still have space left in our Spring Break events, but register soon to avoid disappointment! Register here:

Children’s Programs:

We are thrilled to share that all of our children’s Spring Break programming has been completely filled. Thank you to all of the families who have continually supported us through the past year. We are excited to spend some quality time creating slime, experimenting, and crafting our hearts out!

Be sure to take some time and participate in our LEGO Club building competition! All entries will be entered into a prize draw where you can win a great prize.

We are always happy to put together a specially selected bag of books for your child. Email the ages and interests of your child to and we will do the rest.
