Children`s Programming

We wish all of our library friends’ good luck on their first days of school!

The Shelburne Public Library is open and we are ready to help you get started with your French or English independent reading. If you need help finding the right level of books to read, or would like a bag of specially curated books, please email

The library’s online programming is still in full swing! Weekly LEGO challenges are posted on the library’s Facebook and Instagram pages every Wednesday afternoon. We love seeing pictures of your creations, so please send them in.

Starting September 9, the library will be live every Thursday evening at 7:00 p.m.  on its Facebook page for Sleepy Story Time. Please join in as they read four bedtime stories this week, and so we can wave hello. 

Important: The Children’s Library will be closed every Thursday from 6:30 – 7:30 pm to accommodate the livestream. The library would like to thank residents for understanding.

The Friday morning, Story Time program is gearing up for another month of fun. September Story Time bags are still available for pick up and the library would love for you to join them for a Story and a Craft each Friday at 10:30am. These videos are released once a week on Fridays, but are always available on YouTube for your family to enjoy when your schedule allows. Look out for our October online sign up which will be released the last week of September.

If you are looking for more information about our Children’s programming, please call the library, or email any time and staff would be happy to assist you.
