Turning trees into libraries

When a tree had to be cut down, this person re-purposed it into something amazing. Take a look at this link, to see how a cut tree is helping to embrace the joy of reading.

The Holidays Are Upon Us!

The holiday season is upon us, and we've started decorating at Hackley Library!  Come take a peek at the garland, lights and more throughout the library, and find some great books and DVDs while you're at it. 

Did you know you can have access to hundreds of digital books, audiobooks and magazines by using your library card and the Libby app through OverDrive? Stop by the HPL Reference Desk for more details!

The Snow Queen was here!

The Snow Queen was here at Hackley Library!

She met with many princes and princesses, read us a story, and shared a song! We enjoyed making a magical wand, as well as a snowflake ornament.
The Snow Queen even got the chance to wander around our historic gem after meeting with everyone, enjoying the glass floor and catching a few minutes of a great book. :) 

We hope you all had fun meeting the Snow Queen, thank you to everyone who made this a special afternoon!

HPL's mosaic entry floor is complete!

Restoration was underway at Hackley Library, and the main entry floor has been completed!

This marble mosaic tile floor has been at Hackley Library since it first opened in 1890.  
Parts of our floor had needed repairing, and the fantastic Marion Restoration company did a great job in making new tiles blend nicely with the original tiles.  Approximately 80% of our original tiles are still in tact, whereas about 20% are new tiles. 
Take a peek at the pictures below to revisit the restoration process, beginning with prep work and continuing to the beautifully finished product. 
Stop by HPL and see this beauty in person!
