Hamlet is a community of readers. This is evident by the support the library receives from the citizens and local government. Hamlet is proud that twenty-five years after its charter was granted, the first library was established. Its growth has required several expansions since the humble beginning of a few books. The library's permanent home has become our town's beloved landmark. In order to preserve this historical building, when overcrowding made expansion necessary, a new wing was added in the same architectural style.
Today the library is housed in a modern, up-to-date facility, thanks to the people of Hamlet who supported a building program spearheaded by the "Friends of the Hamlet Library." A wide variety of up-to-date reading materials await all who visit our library. The expanded facility offers a large meeting and conference room for public use. Weekly preschool story hours and summer programs for the children are only parts of the library’s outreach. The atmosphere in the library is a friendly, restful place, whether you come in to browse, read the daily paper, or spend some time in the local history room. A real asset to the city and citizens of Hamlet.
Feel free to visit during normal business hours or give us a call to plan a group visit.
