Celebrate your FREEDOM TO READ

September 25 – October 1 is Banned Books Week

Each year this week highlights how fragile the right to choose and read books can be.  Click here to see a list of top 100 banned books.

Picture Us!

Shelton Public Schools’ new program, Word of the Week, is designed to help Shelton students build their vocabulary.  Students go out into the community to find the Word of the Week posted at various participating companies and organizations, and take a picture of themselves with the word which is posted there.  Plumb Library and Huntington Branch Library are proud to support our students by participating in this initiative.  See how your company or organization can participate here.

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!
