Our exciting new service made available in 1977 is the purchase of Hampton Union since 1901 on microfilm. The Friends of the Library gave us a microfilm reader, so that we are now able to use this valuable reference tool.
We have an active Volunteer Program under the supervision of our assistant Librarian. We are always interested in recruiting new volunteers for all phases of work in the library.
We have been fortunate to have received many donations of usable books this year in addition to several monetary gifts for specific purchases from organizations and our continuing Memorial Gifts Program.
Our budget for 1978 includes staffing for an additional evening after Town Meeting. If the budget is passed we would be open:
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday - 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Thursday, Friday, Saturday - 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
It is our aim to upgrade the services of the library whenever possible. It is our hope that the people will give us the financial support necessary to continue and expand these services.
