HAMPSTEAD - If you want to save more of your income and improve your financial well-being, the Hampstead Public Library has workshops for you. Whether you have a hard time making ends meet, you have had a sudden change in family income, or you just want to get your finances better organized, this two-part series will be helpful to you.

Part 1 of the series, on Tues., November 5, at 6:30 p.m., will cover setting goals, developing a budget and managing your credit. We’ll discuss free credit reports and you’ll get worksheets.

You will be shown resources to save and perhaps make money. The speaker is the VITA Tax Site & Asset Development Coordinator from Rockingham Community Action. To register for one or both of these workshops, call the library (603/329-6411) or email jarden@hampstead.lib.nh.us.

  • 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.
