Happy Thanksgiving!! - 26 Nov 2014
As the holiday season begins, the Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Public Library would first like to wish everybody a happy Thanksgiving!
To allow everyone enough time to make their way over the river and through the woods, as well as to enjoy the holiday, the Library will be closing at 5 PM Wednesday. The Library will remain closed all day Thursday and Friday but will reopen for normal operating hours Saturday, November 29 beginning at 9:30 AM. To accommodate the closure, no items will be due on the two closed days.
During this time, we will likely receive a lot of returns in our drop boxes and it will take more time than usual to check it all in when we return Saturday. Because of this, we would like to ask that you have patience and not be too concerned if it takes more time than usual for returned items to be cleared off of your account. We will also be treating all returns during the holiday as if they were returned on Wednesday.
And so, you can be thankful for no library-related worries this Thanksgiving and we hope you will enjoy the time with family, friends, food, football, or anything else with which you choose to fill your day.
Crackerjack Books for Seniors - 25 Nov 2014
Meet the OWLS (Older, Wiser, Livelier Seniors) from the Garden Homes at Zionsville Meadows. These enthusiastic readers meet once a month to talk about books. In honor of Veterans Day, the OWLs read and discussed Fannie Flagg’s bestselling novel, The All-Girl Filling Station’s Last Reunion, a terrific story that brings to life some unsung heroines of WWII, the Women Airforce Service Pilots. They also celebrated the launch of the Library’s new Crackerjack Book program, which enables senior book groups to check out multiple copies of large print books to use in their discussions. At the end of the hour, the OWLS presented the Library with a copy of the DVD American Experience: Fly Girls for other seniors to enjoy!
Each Crackerjack Book box contains 8 large print copies, an audio copy, and a discussion guide for a popular book. Crackerjack borrowers may also request a Kindle Paperwhite preloaded with the book. Thanks to a generous grant from the Library Foundation, nine different Crackerjack Book sets are available for checkout to local assisted living facilities and their residents. For more information, stop by the Library and pick up a brochure, or email email@example.com.

This holiday season Santa is sending the Youth Services Department an elf, and we need your help deciding on the perfect elf name! Please help us decide by taking the elf poll.
Our elf will arrive on December 1st and will be hiding out to keep an eye on all the good little boys and girls at the HMMPL up until Christmas to let Santa know who has been naughty or nice.
Will you be able to find the elf when you visit the Library?
What kind of mischief does an elf get into in the Library?
