On Saturday August 6th Anthem Sports is hosting the Tour of the Catskills bike race in Windham NY. They are looking for road marshal volunteers (direct traffic and riders along the course) and feed zone volunteers (handing out neutral water to riders and working the Gran Fondo feed table). The shifts are about 4 hours long and start between 9 am and 1:20 pm depending on your post along the course. Anthem Sports has a non-profit civic group volunteer reimbursement program where they pay groups of people who work on behalf of a nonprofit or civic group. For 10 volunteers they will pay the Hunter Library $300 ,and for 15 volunteers , $550, assuming that you volunteer on our behalf . You can register at www.tourofthecatskills.com and click on the volunteer icon at the top of the page. Please put in the HUNTER LIBRARY as the nonprofit group you are volunteering on behalf of. Thank you.
Written for those who are just discovering the library or are still to discover it, this story is a Hunter Public Library adventure. Libraries are a place of discovery and community, a crucial link to information in today’s society, especially for people who are lifelong learners, need access to computers and Internet, and those who are seeking kindred spirits. Come visit the Hunter Public Library!
The library has expanded services with a new digital collection website experience just for kids. The main MHLS Digital Download Collection now has a separate site to provide a safe and easy browsing experience for kids.
Libraries recognize the need to provide a safe environment for kids to browse library materials. Just as the children’s section of the physical library has its own place, the same experience is now available in the digital collection for kids eBooks and audiobooks. Browsing can be done by subject, reading level or interest level. Check out the Kid’s eReading Room.
