Open House 101: Your Guide to Getting the Most from your Visit

It's almost time! Sunday, April 10 from 1- 4pm join us for an interactive, hands-on afternoon at the library.

Start your afternoon off by swinging by the Historical Society's McBride House for a tour. The Historical Society and the Hubbard Public Library are partnering up this year.  In recognition of the library theme, "Create your own Story at your library", the Historical Society will be offering materials free of charge to get you started compiling your own family history. There will also be adorable home shaped tags to pick up at both the McBride House and the library. Get your tag punched at the McBride House and then bring it to the library and have it punched here and you will be entered into a drawing for a prize.

Speaking of prizes, you get an entry into the library basket raffle just by walking in the door! Not feeling lucky enough to win with just one entry? For every demonstration you visit, you receive another entry! So you can some learn about independent courses online on Learning Express, small engine repair, or even how to look up a wiring diagram for a 1979 Camaro on the  Mitchell On Demand car database and you will have 4 entries!

Really love to win prizes? Between now and the open house, stop in the library to pick up a "Characters Invited" form and for every guest who returns your invitation on the day of open house, you will be entered into another drawing!

Does it sound like you could win? Of course it does. Everyone wins when you use your library!
