ATKINSON —We are in the gathering stages for the fall book sale that will take place on September 28. We accept book donations year round, but twice a year we urge you to clear out what you no longer want and bring them in to us. The Town-wide Yard Sale is coming up and we’d like to have a large selection for folks to peruse and purchase. These items take some time to be sorted through which is why we are asking for them now. We accept books, music, and DVDs in good condition. Please be sure books are not moldy or damaged and that music and movies are playable the entire way through. We do not accept any magazines, text books, encyclopedias, or Reader’s Digest condensed books. When we receive your donation, we first sort through to see if we’d like to add any of the items to our collection. If we don’t add the item(s) to our collection, we then decide if it is to be sold or to be transferred to “Got Books” or some other worthy organization. Please take care to recycle your unwanted items by helping the environment and your local library. Donations can be received during open hours from Mon.-Fri., (10:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m.) and Saturday (10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.). If you have large amounts of materials, please call ahead so we can be sure to assist you. Please, do not leave them on our front bench or in the book drops.

Fall story times are now on the calendar and are available for registration. All classes begin at the start of September. We have three different opportunities for three different age groups and we have five available time slots. If none of the time slots fit your schedule, please let us know. If we have a minimum of five interested families we are willing to open up another class if it is agreeable with our schedules. Take a look below at what is available. Register early—we do have a space restriction for each class.

  • We Will Keep the Light On

    The brightly lit electronic message board has been installed in front of the Hampstead Public Library, after much anticipation. The attractive sign will present rotating bulletins, hours, programs, activities, and special information…day and night. The Friends of Hampstead Public Library have pooled their profits with the Hollyhock Thrift Shop and other fundraising activities to make the electronic display possible. An attractive array of plants will highlight the base of the unit. Pictured are: Debra Hiett, right, library director, and Mary Lewis, a three-year library page, and Pinkerton Academy senior.
