Which is your favorite cover? (Elementary Kids Category)

Our Recovering the Classics Art Gallery is now available for viewing and voting both online and in the library. All of the covers were designed by customers who frequent the library. These are the entries for the Elementary Kids Category (1st grade - 5th grade). You can click the links within the poll to view each entry and then select your favorite. The design that receives the most votes will win a copy of the classic book they chose which will feature their art as the cover.

Online polls do NOT reflect in-library voting.

New Year's Resolution?

What was your New Year's resolution?  Did you resolve to get healthy? Exercise more?  Learn relaxation techniques?  In that case, Maud Marks Library would love to help you meet those goals.

After a (very) short break, yoga is back at the Maud Marks Library.  We will be starting back tomorrow at 10 AM with our beginner yoga class.  The class is held the first Saturday of every month at 10 AM and the third Saturday of every month at 3 PM.  You can join up at any time but registration is required.  There are only a few spots left for this Saturday so click here to register.

Happy New Year!

  Happy New Year!  You don't have to make any resolutions to make 2017 a great year.  Just log on to www.hcpl.net and take a look at our calendar and make a decision to register for one of our many opportunities. There's a lot going on at the library. We have computer classes, book clubs, Yoga Class, DIY Macrame Workshop, and more.  And don't forget, our on-line library is open 24-7, so you can access movies, audiobooks, ebooks and more.
