KINGSTON — Our free six-week Meditation Class will run again this year on Wednesdays, September 18-October 23, from 7:00-8:00 p.m. The evening class will provide an opportunity to learn techniques for developing a daily meditation practice. Students will be introduced to the art of centering and mindfulness. Through this, they will develop more positive emotions resulting in a clear sense of well-being. Come join us for this wonderful opportunity to improve the quality of your life. Please call the Library at 642-3521 to register. Class size is limited and preference will be given to Kingston residents. Participants are asked to commit to the full series of six classes. After registering by phone or in person, please arrive a little early on Wed., September 18 and carry a small chair cushion or small pillow for your comfort. Instructional handouts will be supplied each week.

Liz Barbour, chief and food educator, shares how to use every inch of a small garden to maximize its beauty and its bounty using herbs as part of an edible landscape. On Tues., September 24, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. you will be introduced to healthy recipes using herb combinations that you can purchase and grow in your own garden (and ones featured in the new educational herb garden here at the Library!). Enjoy a cooking demonstration of two recipes and samples for all to taste. Sign up is required.

The Friends of the Library are excited be selling Kingston Community T-shirts for $14.00 adults, $12.00 kids, and Imagine More reusable bags for $2.50 at the library. Stop in and make your purchase (the bags are a great way to transport your library books!).

Start a reading tradition with your daughter with a Mother-Daughter Book Club on Tues., September 24 at 6:00 p.m. The group for Girls (grades 4-8) and their Mothers is based on the popular Mother-Daughter Book Club novels by Heather Vogel Fredrick. This first meeting is to decide what to read for the November and December meetings. Miss Sue will book-talk some popular titles, serve cookies, fruit and juice, and choose books for the next meeting. Anyone attending is welcome to bring their own suggestions, but please keep in mind the book must have been published at least six months ago!

  • 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.
