"BYOD" - Bring Your Own Device Tech Tutoring Session
Wednesday February 17 from 3-4:30PM

In 2016, we're adjusting the day and time of tech tutoring to be a little earlier in the day, and the THIRD Wednesday of the month.

Kate will help out with questions on your technology.  Bring your own device (laptop, tablet, smart phone, etc.) or borrow one of the library’s devices. Sometimes we learn something new from each other!

Bring your questions and your log in information with passwords, and we’ll do our best to provide the answers.

We will also have a list of helpful websites, and have helpful books available to check out. Learn about free ebooks and audiobooks, or simply how to take a picture with your phone.

For more information, contact Tech Librarian Kate Thomas at 603-329-6411 or

Friends Program: Old-Time Base Ball: Base Ball in Boston before the Red Sox
Tuesday March 8 at 7pm

Chicago History Museum/Universal Images Group

Back then, Base Ball was two words, not one.  Baseball historian and vintage base ball player, Brian Sheehy will describe the teams that played base ball like it used to be played: no gloves, pitching underhand, knickerbockers, and a base ball made of pieces of leather with an "x" stitched down the middle. It's a very different game from that which we see on television today.

This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Hampstead Public Library.

Movie Classics- Free Matinee
Wednesday March 9 at 1:30pm

The Library is hosting a monthly Classic Movie Matinee on the 2nd Wednesday of the month.

In this Hitchcock thriller, American tourists (James Stewart and Doris Day) are witnesses to the street killing of a Frenchman they've recently befriended. Before breathing his last, the murder victim whispers a secret to Stewart. He knows that a political assassination will occur during a concert at London's Albert Hall, but is unable to tell the police -- his son has been kidnapped by foreign agents to insure Stewart's silence.

Refreshments and snacks will be served. All are welcome to this free program.

Contact 603-329-6411 for more information.
