Summertime, and the reading is easy! This is particularly so when we have such generous merchants providing prizes for all the children participating in this year’s Summer Reading Game. The kindness of these establishments combined with the cost savings to the library are yet another example of why Hastings has, for many years, been known as “a nice place to live.” Not to mention that they are just delicious. Thank you to By the Way Bakery; Galapagos Books; Penny Lick Ice Cream; Pizza Grill; Slices; and Wild Culture for providing either discount coupons or free items. We're lucky to have you.
