You can support the Hamilton Public Library and Wowbrary for free by going to http://wowbrary.org/hamilton to start your Amazon shopping – remember us when you are doing you are buying gifts for the holidays!
Wowbrary is a nonprofit service that provides you free weekly emails and RSS feeds about your local library’s most recent acquisitions. We’ve found that users of Wowbrary emails are both awed and excited when they discover their local public library’s abundance of new books, DVDs, and CDs.
Our service reaches both avid library patrons and those who haven’t used libraries in years. Wowbrary serves as an attractive online version of the new-book shelf, but one that spans all library branches, includes items that are checked out, and comes by convenient email or RSS for those who don’t visit the library website or facilities regularly. By showcasing the latest arrivals and allowing patrons to click through directly to the library website, Wowbrary makes it easy to scan quickly what’s new and encourages greater library use.
During this season of Thanksgiving, we would like to pause to thank you, our many patrons and local government officials from Hamilton, Lebanon, Madison, and Brookfield for your continued support of the Hamilton Public Library. We have faced some significant challenges to our operating funding over the past few years and it has been truly heartwarming to experience your support of the many public services, resources, and opportunities to connect with others, made possible through this public library. We are both pleased and proud to continue to serve as a significant community staple in this way. Our library staff and board of trustees are genuinely grateful for the many ways you’ve demonstrated how much this library means to you, your family, your neighbors, and this community. It is so gratifying to know you continue to value and support our role here.
We realize, too, that it can often be confusing to understand the various sources for our library funding and why they each play a unique and critical role in continuing our operations and special programs. If you are curious about this, please contact library director Hilary Virgil who will be happy to arrange a time to meet with you and provide a more in-depth overview.
