Hamilton Public Library proudly presents “Seasons’ Colors Remembered” by local artist Jon Iannitti. These acrylic paintings reflect Jon’s interest in creating arrangements of color and form. They reveal his continuing desire to experiment with a variety of styles and techniques. Please join us at this public reception to celebrate Jon’s work. Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Library.

It was a busy summer filled with fun at the Hamilton Public Library! Jugglers, music, fabric arts, creative construction…even a solar eclipse celebration! In all, 1,272 people attended 30 Summer Reading Program events and 134 children and teens participated in the reading challenge—collectively reading nearly 80,000 minutes! We are very grateful for the grant funding provided by the Hamilton Community Chest helping to support our programs and events, and to all the area businesses, which generously donated prizes for the reading challenge participants. Many, many thanks to Amy Sommers for her creativity and care in preparing and hosting these wonderful community events! We have very much enjoyed working with Amy and so appreciate her contributions to the Library and community this summer. We wish her all the very best as we bid her a fond farewell at the end of September.
