The Plumb Memorial Library

Residential Community

     Built in 1895, the Plumb Memorial Library is considered one of the outstanding examples of Victorian architecture in the state. With an addition that opened in 1974, the library has provided Shelton residents with books, resources and cultural activities for 100 years.
     The library serves the community as a center of information, support and enlightenment for individuals of all ages. It provides guidance and assistance to all users, and encourages our children to develop an interest in reading and learning.
     Today our patrons number over 15,000 and the combined collection of the two libraries exceeds 140,000 items.
     Library services have broadened through the years to include paperbacks and large print volumes, sound cassettes and filmstrips, then videocassettes and compact discs, and now Internet access, DVDs and CD-ROMs. Free programming is offered for all ages from pre-school story times and children's pet shows to travel programs and senior investment seminars. The summer reading programs at both libraries attract nearly 700 children of all ages. From June to August, the wide variety of children's summer programs produces audiences in the hundreds. These activities are chronicled in the library's monthly newsletter.
