20th Anniversary Events

A Great Celebration

On December 17, 2001 our library opened as the first regional library in the state of Massachusetts. We are proud of our twenty years of service to both the towns of Hamilton and Wenham, and are commemorating the occasion with a month long celebration of the Library!

Month Long Raffle

There will be two baskets being raffled off at the end of December – one for children in the children’s room and one for adults on the main floor. Stop by anytime from December 1 – December 31 and fill out a raffle ticket to be entered to win some great prizes. Winners will be notified in January.

Month Long Photo Display

There will be a month long photo display in the library for the month of December featuring photographs from the construction of the new building. Take a walk through and see the progress of the building. Photos will be throughout the first and second floor.
