Welcome to the Harvey-Mitchell Memorial Library

Scarecrow Contest

The Friends of the Library along with the Epping Garden Club are holding a town-wide Scarecrow Contest this fall in Epping. In order to enter you must register @ Harvey-Mitchell Memorial Library in the Youth Room before September 25th. Registration for the contest is $5. If you'd like some materials, we will also be providing Scarecrow Kits @ HMML for $25. This fee also covers the registration. Once registered either build your scarecrow from scratch or our starter kit and have you creations up by October for judging. All proceeds benifit the Friends of the Library. Call or email us with any questions.

Upcoming Events @ HMML:

The Five Laws of Library Science

Dr. S. R. Ranganathan, considered the father of modern library science, published his 5 laws in 1931: Books are for use; Every reader his or her book; Every book its reader; Save the time of the reader; The library is a growing organism.
