Now that Summer’s over, along with it the Summer Reading Program, we can close for a few months, right? Wrong! Just because the kids are back at school doesn’t mean we get a break. There are always going to be new books and movies, programs, and more for you year-round.
So what’s on deck for September? Well, did you know that September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month? If you’re reading this and don’t have a library card, or if you’re not sure if you have one, stop in and get one/find out! With no fines, automatic renewals, and a selection of millions of titles throughout our system (and seemingly endless options available through Interlibrary Loan), there has never been a better time to visit your local library! Not into books? That’s ok, we have movies, music, audiobooks, comic books, magazines, newspapers, video games, ice skates, robots, American Girl Dolls, museum passes, and more! Signing up is also FREE, so what are you waiting for?
Aside from National Library Card Sign-Up Month, September at the Hamilton Public Library is chock-full of events, with a Teen Escape Room on Saturday the 14th, the return of weekly Storytime Tuesdays at 10 a.m., the LGBTQIA Youth Group meeting Thursday nights at 6, a historical presentation on WWII fighter planes on Monday the 16th at 4, Guided Meditation on Saturday, the 21st, an Artist Reception on the 24th at 4, and much, much more!
Speaking of our Artist Reception, stop in and see our very own Circulation Assistant Amy Sommers’ display “Woolen Whimsy – 100 Hats for a Cause.” In this exhibit, Ms. Sommers not only shows her creativity in making hats, but in how they are displayed on our walls. This is definitely something you’ll want to see, and it’s right in our Children’s Room!
Maybe I should have made a pun about Ms. Sommers’ name at crafted this article around it. Something like “Summer’s over, but Sommers’ here!” Well, since I already wrote this and the deadline is fast approaching, you’ll just have to imagine what that would have been like. Sorry!
Thanks for reading and see you in the library.
