    Grant Sweet Memorial Essay Contest
    September 3, 2019 through October 25, 2019

    All Livingston County middle school and high school students (grades 7 through 12) are eligible to enter. Interview a soldier or veteran, learn about what their service meant to them, then share that in a 250-word essay. Essays must be submitted no later than October 25, 2019, 5:00 pm and are judged by a panel. Photos of the interview subject are requested to accompany the essay. Three cash prizes are awarded and winning essays are to be read Monday, November 11, 2019 at 7:00 pm; winners must be present to win. Winning essays are also published in the Hartland Area Community Council’s annual Memorial Day Parade booklet the following spring.

    Digital Resources Passport Contest
    Now through August 26, 2019

    During the August 5 through August 20, 2019 Temporary Building Closure for paint and carpet renovations, we encourage our patrons to explore the Digital Resources Cromaine offers, that don't require being in the Library! Pick up a Digital Resources Passport prior to the August 5th closure (or download it here) and each day try a different e-resource—one we suggest or one you find on our website that’s new to you. Check off 17 items and bring in your passport Wednesday, August 21 through Monday, August 26 by 9:00 pm. You will be entered into a drawing for a $100 Best Buy gift card! You are on your honor—but we will look to see if our check-outs and our new accounts in these resources increase during this period. Winner will be announced August 27!

    Hartland SOUP @ Hartland United Methodist Church
    Wednesday, October 2nd at 6:30pm
