Pierson Library News

The library has a great selection of gardening books to begin plotting your garden this year. Are you curious about raised beds or vertical gardening for a small space? It’s a great time to start planning your family garden with the little ones.

Notice the library’s Community Poetry Board that currently has an “Ode to Maple Syrup” display of poems by fifth grade students from Shelburne Community School. Poet Laureate Rick Bessette let the kids sample a maple syrup from Shelburne Farms for inspiration before they began to write. If you have a poem you have written to add to the board, please pour it into our poetry sap bucket. We will check it often.
