New Library & Town Center Groundbreaking


Published on September 24, 2018

Shelburne’s Pierson Library and Town Center project will break ground on a new, 12,800 square foot library at 5376 Shelburne Road at 11 a.m.  Saturday, September 29, 2018. All are invited to join in the celebration!


The project includes a new Library building, renovations to Historic Town Hall, and Municipal Campus improvements. Trustees, community members and town officials spent more than a decade developing plans for a vibrant new space that will serve as a place for learning, gathering & celebrating community.


The new library will be a net-zero-ready building. Some features will be a brand new, upgraded space for children, community living room with fireplace, terrace, light filled new book reading space, modern business computing center, increased space for book collections, and meeting rooms throughout the building.


The Historic Town Hall, built in 1927, will receive structural renovations, mechanical system improvements and interior upgrades. This architectural gem in the heart of Shelburne Village will be available for future generations to cherish.


The Municipal Campus will see improvements with more green space and better storm water management, additional parking and safe pedestrian paths, a second exit lane to improve fire department egress, and wonderful landscaping.
