Finished projects may be taken home or left at the library to display.

MOVIE NIGHT AT LIBRARY - September 24 is free movie night at the Hampstead Public Library. Starting at 6:30 p.m., the featured film is director Baz Luhrmann’s interpretation of Fitzgerald’s classic novel “The Great Gatsby.” Taking place in New York in 1922, the movie follows writer Nick Carraway as he becomes fascinated by the lavish lifestyle of his neighbor, the enigmatic Jay Gatsby. Come to the library for the spectacle of this movie featuring period costumes and modern music, and starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan.

BRIDGE CLUB - Bridge Club at the Hampstead Public Library takes place every Monday from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. No sign-up is necessary. Simply drop-in and enjoy the fun. Newcomers are always welcome.

BANNED BOOKS WEEK - The Hampstead Public Library recognizes Banned Books Week, September 22 to 28, with a special book display, bookmarks, lists of banned books, and of course many of the books banned throughout the years are available to check out. Some of those titles include: “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” “To Kill a Mockingbird,” and “The Fellowship of the Ring.” Banned Books Week 2013 celebrates more than thirty years of the freedom to read. This freedom, not only to choose but also to select from a full array of possibilities, is firmly rooted in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
