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.
