Did You Know…

November is National  Family Literacy Month

November 1st marks the start of Family Literacy Month, a nation-wide initiative to encourage not just reading in children, but prioritizing it as a family affair.  Read to your children, have them read to you, read a book together as a family and discuss it, or share your favorite books and authors with each other.  And be sure to visit Plumb or the Huntington Branch as a family to celebrate Family Literacy Month!  Remember that family literacy is something that should be encouraged all year round!

Book Sale Now Over

The Friends of the Shelton Libraries have ended the Book Sale/Free Books as of October 24. We thank you for supporting our book sale.

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!
