The Summer Library Experience at HMS

 Please check out the information below about our summer library hours, shared by HMS Librarian, Merry Stuhr. Our library was a busy place over the summer months, thanks to these special opportunities for our students to visit, relax, and read in the cool comfort of our beautiful library!

Summer in Maine means beaches, barbecues, camps, and much more.  For students at HMS, it also includes open library times at the HMS Library!  Every other Wednesday during the summer, the HMS Library opens it doors to give all our students, from incoming fifth graders through outgoing eighth graders, an opportunity to check out books or to simply hang out with friends and read!  This is made extra special by being exclusively for our students.  (The Merrill Memorial Library is a great place for a family library experience.)   
For students who can't make it in, there's always the HMS Library's collection of eBooks on OverDrive, available 24/7.  All they'll need is an eReading device like a Kindle, Nook, iPod, smartphone, etc., and internet access to initially download the book for a two-week loan period. (Login asks for library card number, which is their HMS Library number, and PIN, which is last name, all lower case.) 

There is one last afternoon that the HMS Library will be open this summer, and it's just around the corner:  Wednesday, August 20, from 2:00 - 4:00. Students may pop in to quickly check out books, or they may stay for the full two hours.  May you enjoy reading......all year long!
