Book Clubbers-Mark down Fri. Jan. 20th

Teen Book Club: At 4pm we will have our teen book club. This month was a non-traditional book choice–we are reading all things Gravity Falls, by Rob Ronzetti and Alex Hirsch. Take your pick from the cinestory comics, to Journal 3, or to the Netflix series, we’re not picky. Here are some links to the resources in our library if you’d like to pick up a copy and join the fun:

Cinestory Comic 1

Cinestory Comic 2

Cinestory Comic 3

Journal 3

Gravit Falls: Six Strange Tales DVD

Adult Book Club: At 5pm will be our final discussion on Annie Proulx’s novel Barkskins. It is well worth the effort of its 700 pages. If you haven’t read the entire novel, don’t be shy, come to the meeting anyway and join the discussion about the many topics that will arise: deforestation of the US and Canada, mistreatment of Native American People, and the human experience of it all. We will be choosing our book to discuss in February, so please come participate!

Thank You Friends–Book Sale Sat. Jan. 21st 10-1

Thank you SO much to our amazing Friends of the Hurley Library! Last month we hit a record with our Winter Wonderland attendance! The day was fun-filled from start to finish. The FOHL organized a bake sale to beat all bake sales….but we couldn’t have done it without your help in the kitchen–thank you bakers! The book sale in the Old Building did VERY well, and there was music, crafts and obstacle courses through-out the day. We thank you all, and hope that you had as much fun as we did! Don’t miss our upcoming book sale on Saturday, January 21st from 11-1!

We’re Bringing Tuesdays Back!

For the next month or so, we are experimenting with bringing Tuesday evening hours back to the Hurley Library. Many of you have expressed that we did not have enough days that we’re open after 5, so we are giving it a shot! The trial period will last through the end of January 2017. Please visit us on Tuesdays as we’ll be open 10-6!
