Has it been your deepest desire to set a world record?  Or be part of a team that challenges a Guinness World Record?  If so, then the Hancock County Public Library in Greenfield, IN has an offer you don't want to miss!  HCPL is trying to set a new World Record for the most people balancing a book on their heads at the same time!  The current record is 998 people so they are looking for at least 999 people to help them break the record!  What a great goal for a public library – do you want to help them set a new World Record?

Join others at the Greenfield Central High School football field at 810 North Broadway in Greenfield on Saturday, May 30th at 10 AM and plan to stay a couple of hours as the attempt to break the record comes together.  Check out the flyer for details about registering and what to bring with you to help set a new World Record and be recorded in the next edition of the Guinness Book of Records!  




Youth Summer Reading explained to Parents! - 22 May 2015
Hours, Books, or days—what do I choose?  If your children have never participated in our youth summer reading program, or if you have ever felt overwhelmed by the choices, please join us Monday, June 1 at 10:30 AM or 6:30 PM and we would love to explain the program to you!  You will learn how to get the most out of the HMMPL Summer Reading Program for your child and a librarian will be available to answer all of your questions.  Children may attend with you, but this program is geared towards parents.  Please register!
Busy Bags - Thursday, May 21 from 6:30 to 8:30pm - 11 May 2015

Busy Bags are small, portable, manipulative activities for toddlers and/or preschoolers. Some help with fine motor skills, others teach pre-literacy skills, and others are just a fun and quiet distraction to help pass time. 

The Busy Bag program is an adult-only program; there is no childcare. This is because it takes almost two hours to assemble all the activity bags that you will take home with you at the end of the evening.

If you sign up for Busy Bags, you are asked to either be a member or become a member of the Friends of the Library (individual membership is $10/year; family membership is $20/year). This membership helps offset the cost of supplies for the Busy Bags and also allows you to be part of a great organization. Friends' dues go toward helping fund library programs and grants. Also, if you choose, you may volunteer to staff Friends events and/or voice opinions on how best to support the Library.  

Sign up here or by calling Youth Services at 873-8342. Registration is limited to 12 adults. (No children.)
