Many thanks to the Friends of the Library, all the volunteers, and shoppers who helped make the book sale at the Hamilton Public Library such a success this year! Thanks to the proceeds from the sale and your annual donations, the Friends will continue to provide funding for special projects that help the library go “above and beyond” such as the funding for the teen space renovations. Stop by and see how things are being transformed.

The library recently received a generous donation from Worn Again to add a new doll to our American Girl Doll collection. Throughout the month of September, community members of all ages are invited to stop in and cast a vote for which new doll we should get. Kirsten, Josefina, and Addy are already available for you to borrow - just stop in today and sign up.

Story Time for babies, toddlers and preschoolers, with their caregivers, resumes at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 20. We look forward to hosting these early childhood education opportunities each Tuesday morning through the end of July.
