Happy Thanksgiving!

We'll reopen on Saturday, November 29th at 10am (yes, we're closed on Thursday and Friday). Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Coat Drive

Begins Monday, November 24

Help keep local families warm this winter by donating your lightly-used coats!

We’re partnering with CertaPro Painters for this “Give a Coat, Get a Coat” program. Donate your gently used coat and receive a ticket to “get a coat” in the form of $100 discount on all paint at CertaPro.

Drop your coat off at the Circulation Desk and get your coupon to present at CertaPro!

Library Flea Market

Visit the HTFL Flea Market on the first floor with staff donated items.

The market will be held beginning on the afternoon of November 17th and run for two weeks during library hours until the afternoon of December 1st. Please stop in and shop--prices are very reasonable! Tables will be set up near the Reference Desk.

Payment for items may be made to any staff member at the desk. Thanks for your support.

Staff Picks

Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contained his deepest darkest secret with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well.
