ADULT STORYTIME - Adult Storytime at the Hampstead Public Library will take place on July 5 and 19 at 10:00 a.m. This program is for developmentally disabled patrons, but all adults are welcome to attend. We read books, do a craft and have a lot of fun.

DIG-IN, DE-CLUTTER, REORGANIZE - 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.

BOOK DISCUSSION - The Third Thursday Book Group at the Hampstead Public Library will meet on July 18 at 1:00 p.m. to discuss “Defending Jacob” by William Landay. This novel is about a Massachusetts assistant district attorney with a successful career, good family and happy life. Andy Barber is blindsided when a shocking crime shatters their New England town, and his 14 year-old son is charged with the murder of a fellow student. Copies of the book are available at the library’s front desk. Newcomers are always welcome to the discussion.
