Folks gathered Saturday to formally break ground on the $6.5 million project to rebuild Pierson Library, renovate the 1927 Town Hall, and update the Town Center campus. Work should end next summer.
A New Beginning
by Rick Bessette
Let us move forward together
As we break this historic ground.
For future generations,
With a foundation strong and sound.
It will be a space for learning,
A place to come and gather round.
A place for all, both young and old,
Here, in the center of our town.
Bessette is Shelburne’s first poet laureate.
