Hamilton Public Library news
By Barb Coger
(Hamilton, NY- Feb. 2012) The Hamilton Public Library is pleased to announce that their annual “Exceptional Art Exhibit” is now on display. This art show features work created by artists from several area agencies, including Heritage Farm.
Among the art work you will find colorful paintings, creative sculptures, art forms found in nature, paper folding, jewelry and collages.
The public is invited to attend a special reception in honor of these talented artists on Friday, Feb. 10, at 10 a.m.
Susan Beattie has once again donated some of her lovely nature photography note cards as a fundraiser for the library. These items are limited in quantity and sell for $3 each. All proceeds from the sale of these note cards will be used to purchase books for the children’s area.
Children’s books are also added to our library’s collection through a generous gesture of the Hamilton Rotary Club. This club has chosen to honor their weekly speakers by purchasing books for Hamilton Public Library in their name. Some of the most recent gift books include Cornelia Funke’s “Dragon Rider,” “Homer the Library Cat” by Reeve Lindbergh and Shel Silverstein’s “Everything on It.”
As a reminder, federal and state tax forms at available at the library. We now have the 1040 instruction booklets. Call the library for the free tax consultant contacts.
