Before I get to anything else, I want to thank Renée Rashford for her years of service to us and our patrons since she began working here the spring of 2015. She is leaving us this week to work as an HR Assistant at a New Hartford credit union. Here, she not only worked the Circulation Desk, but helped out with children’s programs on multiple occasions. I remember Renée as a patron of the Waterville Public Library when I worked as a Circulation Assistant there about 15 years ago. It was a nice surprise to see her here on my first day of work! Thanks, Renée, for all you do. You will be missed!
On a related note, we have another position open, so if you or anyone you know is interested to work at the Hamilton Public Library part time, please click here to find out more information on this employment opportunity. The position will be open until filled. And just a head’s up – there will be yet another vacancy on our staff in a few more weeks, but more on that in another column.
Looks like we have more room here, so why don’t I tell you about an upcoming program? Yeah? Great!
On Saturday, August 7 at 11 a.m., adults can stop in for Tales and Mocktails! We will make a few mocktails, talk about books, and make some crafts! This goes along with our weekly social media posts, pairing books with mocktails. Everything will be here at the library, including drink ingredients. Drinks will be made ahead of time by our Events Coordinator in her certified home kitchen to follow health regulations. All you have to do is mix the add-ins and seltzer! And if mocktails aren’t your thing, if you bring the drink with you and add a non-non-alcoholic mixer to it, we’ll never know! The event will be held outside unless it rains, in which case it will take place socially distanced in our Community Room. There is no registration required for this program, just show up if you can!
Thank you for reading and get vaccinated if you can and haven’t already!
