Did You Know…

July 14, 2016 will be the last day we will be offering lynda.com. If you are in the process of completing a course please try to finish as soon as possible.

We hope you enjoy the summer and get a chance to stop in at one (or both) of our libraries. Our summer reading clubs for all ages have begun, books and movies are available, and museum passes for Shelton residents are waiting to be reserved. You can also enjoy free Wi-Fi or use our computers while staying cool.

FYI: Requesting items from other libraries

The state library is in the final phase of reorganizing its delivery service. It’s possible that items you request may not arrive for several weeks. If you need an item immediately, you may want to go directly to the owning library to pick it up; you can call ahead to make sure the item is in, and staff can place it on the library’s hold shelf for you. Your current Shelton library card can be used in any CT library. Thanks for your patience!

Adult Summer Reading Club

This yearly event sponsored by the Friends of the Shelton Libraries is offered at both libraries, beginning Monday, 6/20. Adults may read whatever they wish, fill out a short review form, and enter it for a chance to win gift certificates from local businesses. The first drawing will be held on June 27 and will continue weekly until August 15. Then, all adults who have participated are invited to a party just for them at the Plumb Memorial Library on Thursday, 8/18, at 7:00PM.
