Work Now Accepted for Community Art Show

Hamilton Public Library

By Barbara Coger, library director

(Hamilton, NY – March 2011) Hamilton Public Library and the Colgate Bookstore are once again offering The Chenango Valley Scribes Young Writers & Illustrators Contest. Children in kindergarten through fifth grade are welcome to enter this competition. The applications are available at the library, The Colgate Bookstore, and area elementary schools. The deadline for submissions is Saturday, April 16 at 5 pm.

If you are shopping at the New Hartford Barnes & Noble on Saturday, March 5, a percentage of your purchases can benefit Mid York Library System. Just mention “Mid York Book Fair” at checkout. These funds will be used to supplement the downloadable ebook and audiobook collections that are available as a free service from the MYLS.

You may also purchase items online from Barnes & Noble between March 5 and 11 and still participate in the fundraiser. Just enter Bookfair ID 10435519 at checkout.

Now that March is already here, I’d like to remind all area artists that we will start accepting your wonderful artwork as soon as March 14 for our annual Community Art Show. All forms of artwork will be considered and pieces must be submitted by March 31st.  Choose your favorite piece as there is a limit of one item per artist.

Beverly Choltco-Devlin will be at the library Wednesday, March 9 to unveil the secrets of finding a needle in the internet haystack between 3:30 and 5 pm. This will be the last in a series of five afternoon sessions that have been sponsored by the Life Long Learners program. The public is invited to attend this free session which will be held in the library’s Community Room.

The library is open Monday-Friday, 10 am – 7 pm, and Saturday, 10 am – 1 pm. Please call the library, (315) 824-3060, during regular hours for assistance. The book drop on Broad Street is always open for your convenience. Check the library’s Facebook account for up-to-date information about programs and special events.
