The Library will be
CLOSED until further notice

Sunday, March 15, 2020

Dear Hamlin Community,

The Hamlin Public Library has made the difficult decision to close the library to the public until further notice. The decision was made after consulting with county and local officials who have encouraged social distancing to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 (coronavirus).  The health and safety of our patrons, staff and community needs to be our highest priority.

While we are closed you are encouraged to keep your books until we open back up. All library books will now be due on June 29th, 2020 so you do not accrue any fines while we are closed. Any user with an outstanding fee above $35 will not be referred to collections at this time.

We will continue to work on providing services to the community. We welcome you to check out an eBook, audiobook or online magazine through Overdrive: The Monroe County Library System databases are also available:

If you do not currently have a library card then you can sign up for an eCard here: . An eCard will allow you to borrow downloadable materials.

We will provide additional information and services on our Hamlin Public Library Facebook page. We will continue to monitor the situation and work with health, county and local leaders as they make recommendations.

Thank you,

Christine Gates

Director, Hamlin Public Library

Blindside -

Release Date 2-24-2020

The mayor of New York has a daughter who’s missing and in danger. Detective Michael Bennett has a son who’s in prison. The two strike a deal.
Bennett and the mayor have always had a tense relationship, but now the mayor sees in Bennett a discreet investigator with family worries of his own. Just one father helping another.
The detective leaps into the case and sources lead him to a homicide in the Bronx. The victim has ties to a sophisticated hacking operation — and also to the mayor’s missing daughter, Natalie, a twenty-one-year-old computer prodigy. The murder is part of a serial killing spree, one with national security implications. And suddenly Bennett is at the center of a dangerous triangle anchored by NYPD, FBI, and a transnational criminal organization.
Michael Bennett has always been an honorable man, but sometimes — when the lives of innocents are at stake — honor has to take a back seat. Survival comes first.

Before the Broken Star

Everley Donovan is living on borrowed time. The lone survivor of her family’s unexplained assassination, she was saved by an ingeniously crafted clockwork heart. But the time she was given won’t last forever. Now, every tick-tock reminds her how fragile her existence is and hastens her quest to expose Killian Markham, the navy admiral who shattered her world and left her for dead. But Everley’s hunt for justice will be a long and hard-won voyage. 

Her journey takes her to a penal colony on a cursed isle, where she will be married off and charged to build the new world. It is here, and beyond, that hidden realms hide, treasures are unearthed, her family secrets are buried, and young love will test the strength of her makeshift heart. When Everley discovers Markham may not be who he seems, her pursuit for truth is bound to his redemption, her tragic history, and her astonishing destiny.

Ford v Ferrari

In the 1960s, Ferrari is an untouchable figure in racing. With Enzo Ferrari (Remo Girone) ardently chasing after excellence, the company is irrefutably the best there is. Ford’s Henry Ford II (Tracy Letts) wants in on the success, and so he journeys to Italy to propose a merger with the automobile giant. His plan, however, is met with ridicule. With a hurt ego, he enlists the help of car designer Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) and driver Ken Miles (Christian Bale) to build a car that would defeat Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Directed by James Mangold. ~ Phil Griffin, Rovi
