Gift Basket Raffle:  The trustees of the Sarah Hull Hallock Free Library have created three gift baskets containing wonderful products and valuable gift-certificates to local eateries and spas.  This year’s basket themes are “Be Our Guest”, “Comfy Cozy” and “Child’s Play”.  Also, you can take a chance on a hundred dollars worth of scratch-off lottery tickets.  Purchase raffle tickets at the library — $1 each, $5 for six, or $10 for an arm’s length.  Winners need not be present at the drawing on December 4.


Sights and Sounds of the Season:  Bring your family and friends to the Sarah Hull Hallock Free Library for some fun holiday cheer.  Join us for our traditional open house — an afternoon of music, stories, make-and-take craft projects, and delicious goodies!  The open house ends with the drawing of raffle tickets to win gift baskets or $100 in lottery scratch-off tickets.  Sunday, December 4, 2:00 – 4:00 pm


Food for Fines:  Pay your fines in non-perishable food items for the month of November!  All items will go to a local food pantry.  We need non-perishable, unopened, undamaged and not expired packages/cans of foods.  Only fines incurred for late Milton Library items qualify.  The program does not include replacement costs for lost items or those belonging to other libraries in the Mid Hudson Library System.  A maximum of $10.00 in fines in November will be waived (estimated rate of $1.00 per can/package).
