June 13 – 20 / HOMETOWN HEROES

 HomeTown HeroCalling All HomeTown Heroes

Every HERO has a story…tell us yours!!!

 

This summer, the Sarah Hull Hallock Free Library, in Milton, N.Y., along with other libraries across the nation, presents hands-on family fun with the “Every Hero Has a Story” Summer Reading Program. For 2015, the Milton Library plans Thursday Family Fun Nights, complete with “Build Yourself a Hero” workshops and entertainment. The Town of Marlborough, in conjunction with this program, would like to celebrate ALL our Hometown Heroes, and we are hoping that YOU will help us!

Do you have a Hometown Hero whose story you would like to tell? A family member who has served in the military or works/volunteers as a “community helper”? A friend who has done significant charity work in our town? An ancestor who contributed to our town in a positive and lasting manner? Whatever your vision of a Hometown Hero is, share your stories with us!

Please submit a picture (if available) and biography to the Town of Marlborough Town Hall, in care of the Recreation Committee, attention Patricia Haidaoui. We will compile these Hometown Heroes into a display that will be available for viewing at Town Hall, from June 13th through June 20th. The deadline for submissions is Monday, June 8, 2015. For more information on this project, please contact Patricia Haidaoui at Trisha7777@live.com or at 845-764-7694.

Please make sure to visit the Sarah Hull Hallock Free Library for more information on the “Every Hero Has a Story” Summer Reading Program, and the “Build Yourself a Hero” kick-off event with Mad Science. Stop by the Milton Library from June 13th through June 20th to see who is being celebrated as a “Sarah Hull Hallock Library Hero” and learn more about this historic library!

eBooks for Kids!

The library has expanded services with a new digital collection website experience just for kids. The main MHLS Digital Download Collection now has a separate site to provide a safe and easy browsing experience for kids.

Libraries recognize the need to provide a safe environment for kids to browse library materials. Just as the children’s section of the physical library has its own place, the same experience is now available in the digital collection for kids eBooks and audiobooks. Browsing can be done by subject, reading level or interest level. Check out the Kid’s eReading Room.
