Summer Activities with Your Local Libraries

“Imagine Your Story, Journal Your Story”

Free journaling kits are being given out to Shelburne and Buckland libraries’ patrons to write, draw or scrapbook your stories. The Arms, Buckland and Shelburne Free libraries have these for you. Call your most local library to pick up a kit, with notebook, colored pencils, pencils, erasers and glue sticks. Arms Library 413-625-0306, Buckland 413-625-9412, and Shelburne Free 413-625-0307.
