(Hamilton, NY – Jan. 17, 2012) Interested in saving some money? Plan on attending Lindsey Hoham’s “Not- So-Extreme Couponing and other Money-Saving Tips” program Tuesday, Jan. 17, at 6:30 p.m. This event will be held in Hamilton Public Library’s Community Room.
This is a free event, but attendees are encouraged to bring a donation of non-perishable food, paper goods or personal care items to donate to the Food Cupboard, preferably something purchased with a coupon.
Topics to be covered include basic couponing and deal match-ups, making a coupon binder, easy and free rewards programs, saving money online and using your smart phone to save money.
Hamilton Public Library does have federal and state income tax forms available. We are just waiting for the 1040 instruction booklets to arrive.
There will also be free tax consultation available for low income families and people 60 years old and over. These sessions are by appointment only. Call the library for more information.
We will host a Community Art Exhibit again in April, so now’s the time to be thinking about what you might like to display. All forms of art work will be accepted. There is a limit of one item per person. Over the years we have seen a fantastic array of wall art, basketry, jewelry, pottery, fabric arts, woodwork, photography and other creative pieces of art work.
As a reminder, suggestions for technology classes this spring are now being accepted. We have a list of suggested topics and welcome your input.
The library will be closed Monday, Jan. 16, in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr., Day.
