(Hamilton, NY – April 2012) Customer Appreciation Week at Hamilton Public Library continues until Saturday, April 7. There are still plenty of opportunities to view the library’s eighth annual Community Art Show, enjoy daily refreshments and use the laptops near the circulation desk.

There will be a special overnight event for teddy bears and their toy friends Thursday, April 12. Drop off a favorite stuffed animal anytime between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. that day. Toys will be well-supervised, and we are hopeful that their antics will be documented on a YouTube video.

They will be ready to be picked up between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Friday, April 13.

The next computer class will be “Digital Photo Basics” Tuesday, April 10, 3 to 5 p.m. This class is open to all, but registration is required. Participants are encouraged to bring their own cameras and laptop to class.

On Thursday, April 12, “How to Write a Business Letter with Microsoft 2010” will be offered from 10 a.m. to noon. This class is limited to just five people so register early.

A list of all scheduled classes is available at the library. We do ask that you choose the two that are of most interest to you and then you may add your name to a wait list for others. Individual assistance will be available Tuesdays and Thursdays whenever classes are not being held. Sign-up sheets are available at the circulation desk.

Don’t forget, the deadline for submitting entries for the Chenango Valley Scribes Writing contest is Friday, April 6, at 5 p.m.
