What do you want from your library?

Is it a book or DVD rental that you want to borrow from the library that prompts your visit, or is it to use the internet?   Do you attend one of the many programs we offer for one and all?  Do you come to the library to use the WiFi or to attend a meeting?  Or do you visit for socialization, or just a place to "be" in the community?

I would like to know your thoughts.  Please consider sending me an email at

Your thoughts are important to me in the way you use your library.  I value your opinion.

Upcoming Exciting Events

 I am so excited about events that we have on the calendar for this fall starting with our 2nd Annual Business Breakfast on Wednesday, September 12 at 7:30am.  We strive to reach out to every corner of the community and if you are a business owner we want to see you at this program.  You will have the opportunity to network with other business owners in the community, find out what the library can do for your business to reach its potential, and discover information about fall workshops that are being held for  you.  

The Open the Book Library Celebration is being held on Saturday, October 13 at 7:00pm at the McCall Golf and Country Club to honor four people/organization in the community.  There will be a Silent Auction held to benefit the library through the Friends of HTFL.  

Look for the other programs we have listed here on our website and don't miss out on all the fun!

Do you sing, play the guitar, tell a good, clean joke?

You are invited to participate in our last of the Sounds of Summer series, Open Mic Night on Friday, August 24.  Don't miss out on this opportunity.  You will have 5 minutes to perform onstage in the library's parking lot (if the weather is rainy, the show will be in the Community Room.)  Register here!   Break a leg-but please not literally.

A Bit of Trivia

What 2012 international sports phenomenon will be held for 17 days beginning on Friday, July 27?  The Olympics, of course. Looking for information on past Olympic games?  Stop by the library for related books and materials or visit our Olympic display that includes an official Olympic Torch.

Some Olympic facts you might be asking:

  • London is hosting the Olympic games for the third time in history--the other years were 1908 and 1948.  
  • The first Ancient Olympic games have been traced back to 776 BC.  Click here for additional facts about the ancient games.
  • What was the first city to host the modern Olympic games?  Athens, Greece in 1896.
