HPL Current and Upcoming Events
Seed Sharing Day at the Library
Saturday, April 24, 2021
12:00 - 2:00 pm in front of the HPL
Calling all gardeners - experienced and beginners.
Stop by and pick up some seeds to try out in your garden this year.
The HPL will be sharing flower and vegetable seeds, including seeds donated by FEDCO-SEEDS and HUDSON VALLEY SEED CO. We will also be featuring a collection of organic tomato seeds - including heirloom varieties used by the Hopewell Canning Factory in the 1890s!
SHARE YOUR SEEDS
Have leftover flower or vegetable seeds from last year? Bring your extra seeds for the Seed Sharing table. (Seeds may also be dropped off at the Library before the event.)
(Facemasks, social distancing, and sign-in will be required)

Children's Story Time is back starting April 12 - We will gather Mondays at 10:30 am, outdoors at the gazebo in Hopewell Park (weather permitting). Adult masks, please. Bring a towel for distanced seating.
DIY Storytime - Much like Storytime with Ms. Jennifer, each week in the Library we’ll feature a different children’s book along with a related craft. Craft supplies and instructions will be laid out in the children’s room. You can make an appointment to visit and read the story and complete the craft, or just drop by to check if the room is available.
Ms. Jennifer will be there on Tuesdays from 12 - 4 to help choose books to take home, and the Library is also open on Thursdays from 12 - 4 and Saturdays from 12 - 2.

Please Join Us! First and third Tuesday evenings at 7pm.
