That’s a wrap on summer events at the library
William Bradford Huie
Library of Hartselle
We had a terrific summer at the William Bradford Huie Library. Our Summer Reading Program was fantastic, and we want to thank all those who worked to make it a success.
Our Hartselle Police Department and Morgan County Sheriff’s Department did a wonderful job at the kickoff event. We also want to give a shout out to the Hartselle Fire and Rescue and our Public Works Department. They did a great job explaining their jobs and what they do in our community. Mayor Garrison opened up City Hall for one of the programs allowing our young patrons the opportunity to see how our city government works to keep our city running smoothly.
We appreciated Dr. Sittason from Sittason Family Dentistry and Dr. Parker from Animal Tracks taking time out of their demanding schedules to participate in our Summer Reading Program. Of course, we are so thankful for the library staff, Alex VanKoughnett, Sarah Laughmiller and Chrissy Tucker for all their hard work and planning that goes into making our programs a success.
What’s next? It’s fall y’all! The programs never stop at the library. We have lap babies storyt ime, pre-K story time, kids book club, adult painting classes, adult book club, movie nights and kids painting classes. Starting in September we are going to add an additional kids’ paint class. We will have one class for our pre-k-kindergarten and a second class for our first grade through fourth grade. Our painting class for our older kids will be a little more challenging.
We have Jim Phillips coming just in time for Halloween Oct. 30 to share with us some stories about ‘Haunted Alabama.’ We are also planning another Trunk or Treat for this year. It was such a success last year we can’t wait to do it again!
To keep up with all our programming and events just stop by the library and pick up calendar. We also post activities on City of Hartselle’s Facebook page, Friends of Huie Library Facebook page and you are welcome to call us at 256-773-9880.
Hope to see you at the library!
