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.

Cards and Board Games

At the Huntington Branch Library on Wednesday, 1/27, 2/24, 3/23, and 4/27, at 11:00 AM.  This monthly program hopes to entice adults to get out of the house this winter for some fun. The Friends of the Shelton Libraries are providing an assortment of games, dessert and beverages; you just need to bring your sense of humor and a bag lunch. Then, consider staying for As I See It – watch a movie and weigh its merits over MORE dessert!
