  • 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.
