Hampstead Library News

By Janet Arden and Patty Falconer

HAMPSTEAD —Do you have piles of paper that never get smaller? Are those molehills of clutter turning into mountains? Are your closets and drawers filled to capacity? Perhaps it is time to dig-in, de-clutter, and reorganize! To start you on your way, the Hampstead Public Library has invited professional organizer Ann Cope to speak at the library on Wed., July 10 at 7:00 p.m. She will give you some quick tips on how to improve your home or work space. Remember, an organized clutter free environment is a happy environment. Ann Cope is from “A State of Order” in Andover Massachusetts, a professional organizing company.

CHILDREN’S MINI GARDEN: Kids are invited to the Hampstead Public Library on Mon., July 8 at 2:00 p.m. to do garden crafts. Make a soda bottle terrarium, design a lovely butterfly, and create a mural with root vegetable printing. Participants will also enjoy a snack picnic outside in the Storybook Garden. If you have empty liter soda bottles to spare, please bring them to the library.

BOOK DISCUSSION FOR KIDS: The Hampstead Public Library will have a special edition of a summer book discussion on Tues., July 9 at 6:30 p.m. The featured book is “Call Me Amy” by Marcia Strykowski. This event is particularly appropriate for kids who will be entering middle school or high school, but adults are also welcome to attend.
