HAMPSTEAD —Once again, the Hampstead Public Library in conjunction with Sylvan Learning is offering a free mock S.A.T. for high school students on Sat., October 18 at 9:00 a.m. Advance registration is required. You do not have to be a Hampstead resident to attend. Call the library at 603-329-6411, or email ProgramsHPL@gmail.com to sign-up. Results will be available for participants on Tues., October 21 at 6:30 pm at the library. Students will receive tips and learn where they need to focus their attention to improve performance on the actual S.A.T. This mock test should not be confused with the PSAT/NMSQT which takes place at high schools.
Students interested in science are welcome to join us at the “Science of Climate Change” event at the Library on Wed., October 22 at 7:00 p.m. The speaker is UNH professor Barrett Rock Ph.D. and he’ll talk about natural and man-made effects on the warming and cooling of our planet, plus the impact of changes here in New England.
Children and adults are invited to the Library on Tues., October 21 at 10:00 a.m., to Read for the Record. This annual reading event celebrates literacy and promotes early childhood education in America. The featured book is “Bunny Cakes” by Rosemary Wells.

Families won’t want to miss Critters ‘N Creatures at the Hampstead Public Library on Thurs., October 23 at 6:30 p.m. This live animal show is Halloween-themed and features bats, skunks, pythons and more! After the show, the brave will have an opportunity to get up close and personal with the animals.
Thurs., October 30 is free movie night at the Library. We’ll screen a classic Frank Capra comedy at 6:30pm. Cary Grant stars as a man who discovers his adorable aunts have a gruesome secret. To complicate matters, his brother Teddy thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt, and his other criminal brother – who resembles Frankenstein -- drops in for a visit. Creepy and comedic, this fast-paced film is just the fun you need in time for Halloween. Call the library for more details, 603-329-6411, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All events are free and open to the public. The Hampstead Public Library is conveniently located near the intersection of Routes 111 and 121, at 9 Mary E. Clark Drive.
