Huntington Branch Library

The Huntington Branch Library is a great place to be whether you want to pop in and out and pick up a movie, find a great tome to read or listen to, use our public computers or WiFi, or just want to enjoy our relaxed and informal ambience.  We're one of the best kept secrets in town (even though we're been here for over twenty years). The Huntington Branch Library is located with the Shelton Community Center.


At the Huntington Branch Library on Saturday, 10/10, at 1:00PM. Dr. Lori Monaco returns to present a program on how touch, and lack of touch, affects our body, mind and spirit. Topics include defining touch – good touch, bad touch – and how important touch is to us. Please register beginning 9/25.
