Jolly Reader launched at Shelton library

Kids can venture aboard The Jolly Reader, a pirate ship in the downstairs children's area of the Shelton Timberland Library, to tie ropes, work the ship's wheel or curl up with a book inside a porthole.

About 200 people attended the ship's debut March 9 that included live music, face painting, rope tying, a mermaid and a pirate.

Timberland Regional Library's facilities staff build the ship, which measures 26 feet long and 17 feet wide. The features include a crow's nest with a parrot, floating jellyfish that bob in the underwater-style lighting and openings to climb in and out of the ship.
