Greetings from the William Bradford Huie Library of Hartselle.  As always, we are continuing to add programming and expanding the services we offer to our patrons.  

Our summer reading program is off to a great start with 55 children and 19 adults attending our kickoff event June 2. This year our summer reading program will continue until July 28. Library staff have been creative and have worked very hard to decorate the library in our “Oceans of Possibilities” theme. 

We have teamed up with local merchants for a downtown Hartselle scavenger hunt. Stop in the library and pick up a map and stickers, then walk through downtown to match the stickers to the animal decals our downtown merchants have displayed.  When you have found them all, pop back in the library to get a “Oceans of Possibilities downtown stroll button.” 

We also have book bingos and summer reading logs for all ages. The book bingos can be completed weekly for grab bag prizes. Reading logs may be completed for one chance to win one of the grand prizes for your designated age group. The grand prizes include kindle tablets and leap pads. Prize drawings we be held July 28 at 10:30 a.m. Other events during our summer reading program include two story times each week, movies, paint classes and book club.  Stop by the library and pick up our calendars for times and events.  

We would like to give a big shout out to all those in our community who helped to make our summer reading program a success this year. Special thanks to City of Hartselle, Friends of the Huie Library, Whinny Wisdom who provided the Oceans of Possibilities Buttons, and all the merchants that participated in the downtown stroll. Those merchants are: Zoey’s Downtown, Something Blue Too, Something Vintage, Moe’s BBQ, Forever Kate, Keramos Ceramics, Whinny Wisdom, Sherry’s Sparkle, Eatin’ in the Attic, JPosh Apparel, Shoefisticated, the Hartselle Area Chamber of Commerce and The Freight House. We would also like to thank Oliwia’s Shave Ice for allowing us to meet there for an off-site program.    

We hope to see you soon at the library!
