Proctored by Sylvan Learning, this mock test has timed sections in mathematics, critical reading, and writing. The National Testing Service has redesigned the S.A.T., so this practice can be very helpful in navigating the new timing, scoring, and structure.

Class size is limited. Advance registration is required; call the Library at 603-329-6411 or email ProgramsHPL@gmail.com to sign-up. This is a no risk, no obligation, no cost practice. You do not have to be a Hampstead resident to attend.  

Free Movie Matinee: What's Up Doc?
Wednesday Sept 14th at 1:30pm

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

With Howard Hawks's Bringing Up Baby (1938) as his blueprint, Peter Bogdanovich resurrected and paid homage to 1930s screwball comedy in What's Up, Doc? (1972). When wacky co-ed Judy Maxwell (Barbra Streisand, in the Katharine Hepburn part) spies nebbishy musicologist Howard Bannister (Ryan O'Neal in bespectacled Cary Grant mode) in a San Francisco hotel lobby, she decides that Howard and his precious igneous rocks are right up her alley. Too bad Howard already has a fiancée.

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