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.

Holiday Floral Arrangements

At the Huntington Branch Library on Wednesday, 12/10 at 10:30AM.  Enjoy the talents of floral designer Cathy Ritch as she demonstrates the joy of decorating with holiday flowers.  The Friends of the Shelton Libraries (FOTSL) are sponsoring this class and hope that you will become inspired to create your own arrangements for home or gifts.  As an added incentive, everyone attending will be entered in a drawing for the arrangements which Cathy will be making.  In February, Cathy won the top design award, Award of Design Excellence, at the Connecticut Flower and Garden show in Hartford.

Meet Santa Day

At the Huntington Branch Library on Saturday, 9:30AM – 12:30PM.  Bring an unwrapped gift to Santa for Toys 4 Kids, and have your child’s picture taken with Santa.  Stories, music, crafts, and refreshments will delight your children.  This event is hosted by the library and co-sponsored by TEAM, Inc. , Echo Hose Ambulance, and Shelton Volunteer Fire Companies 3 & 4.

Book and Media Donations – Huntington Branch Library

Due to our recent theft of movies, we have had to use our donation shelves to keep several of our movie collections safe behind the service desk. As a result we have very little room for donated items.

We ask that you call us before coming in with donations to see if we do have the room to store them. This is only a temporary situation, and we apologize for the inconvenience to you. Plumb Memorial Library will be happy to take any items we do not have room for.
