Merry Christmas from Hawkins Memorial Library. May your holiday be safe, healthy, and joyful.
Choose a wish card from the display tree and help make the museum and library wishes come true. Wish lists include basic cleaning, office and operational supplies.
Adopt a Book at the library this Christmas. Choose a children’s book tag from our tree, purchase the book, and then receive recognition for your donation with a bookplate placed in that book. This would make a wonderful memorial or a special gift in honor of a person who has everything.
