Repurposed Room At Hawley Library

Before     After  

Hawley Library’s former book sale area on the lower level was transformed recently by five Hawley Rotarians into a spacious reading room.  Alynda Haslam, Jim Pierce,  Sue Rowe, Tom Visgilio and Rotary President Melanie Tek-Visgilio painted the room sage green, assembled tables, and assisted Librarian Maura Rottmund in rearranging a storeroom. 

            “The Hawley Library is such a vital part of the community providing many services beside lending books.  As Tom and Jim applied the second coat, a children’s art class worked excitedly in the next room,“  Tek-Visgilio reported.  “Sue and Alynda, two new members to Hawley Rotary, edged the entire room and painted under the air duct.  It was truly a group effort.”

"A library outranks any one thing a community can do to benefit its people. It is a never-failing spring in the desert." ~ Andrew Carnegie

Your gift will help the library serve its community in essential ways--through reading, technology, programs and comfortable space for all ages. There are also many ways to give--as a donor, as a volunteer, and in the form of a planned gift for the future. We thank you for your generosity and support!
