A Note from the Director
On behalf of the Trustees and Staff of HKDPL, thank you for your support in approving our operating budget for the fiscal year starting July 1st! Incumbents Bernadette Koop and Richard Freeman were elected to 5-year terms as library trustees.
Summer Reading Club
Don't let you child's reading level slide over the summer. When you sign them up for our Summer Reading Club, they'll have so much fun they won't even realize they're learning!
Support Local Agriculture
We're bringing the farm to your table! Sign up with Field Goods for a weekly bag of fresh produce and select HKDPL as your pickup location. More info about this fantastic opportunity below.
We are so very lucky to have a dedicated team of people who are committed to the Library and to you, our community. I'd like to take this opportunity to recognize those team members whose anniversaries occur during July and August: Carolina A., 10 years; Julio A., 5 years; Swapan B., 2 years; Alexandra B., 12 years; Allison C., 1 year; Zachary C., 2 years; Debbie D., 6 years; Amy F., 21 years; Betty F., 15 years; Elizabeth G., 2 years; Herbert K., 7 years; Margaret L., 10 years; Angela L., 2 years; Julio M., 10 years; Brianna R., 7 years; and Mark A., 6 years. That is 118 years of service, dedicated to our organization. Thank you all for your time, effort and loyalty! This recognition of team members is a regular feature in our newsletters.

You will also be entered into the grand prize drawing at the end of the summer. REGISTRATION REQUIRED. Open to library card holders in any RCLS library, age 17 and over.
Do You Have a New Tech Toy?
If you want a new phone or tablet, and want to find out more about what it can do, join us on the mid-level at 7 pm on the first Wednesday of the month to exchange ideas.
