Staff with Santa25th Annual Holiday Open House & Tree Lighting
Saturday, December 1st

2:00 pm - 4:00 pm 

Each year our community comes together to celebrate the holiday season as friends and neighbors. The Lions Club will bring Santa from the North Pole (reindeer only fly on Christmas Eve), Mahoney & Associates has donated the tree and our local Bridgehampton School student band will play while we sing carols together on the front lawn. Starbucks will provide hot chocolate. Refreshments will include cookies baked by our friends at South Fork Bakery and the Bridgehampton School  students will be providing us with some delicious soup.

Book Angels will be available for pick up the day of the event.

Another Hampton Library tradition, the Book Angels Program provides a book to each elementary school student in Bridgehampton and Sagaponack. Please consider selecting an angel or two from our display. On each angel is the age and gender of a child in our schools, please purchase a book appropriate for the child described on the angel you have selected and return it to the library by Monday, December 17. Library staff will wrap and deliver the books to our local schools before they leave on break. It makes my heart sing to know the community shares the Library’s passion of fostering a love of reading in the youngest members of our community.

A Little History on Thanksgiving from 

Though many competing claims exist, the most familiar story of the first Thanksgiving took place in Plymouth Colony, in present-day Massachusetts, in 1621. More than 200 years later, President Abraham Lincoln declared the final Thursday in November as a national day of thanksgiving. Congress finally made Thanksgiving Day an official national holiday in 1941.

Sarah Josepha Hale, the enormously influential magazine editor and author who waged a tireless campaign to make Thanksgiving a national holiday in the mid-19th century, was also the author of the classic nursery rhyme Mary Had a Little Lamb.

Library will be CLOSED Sunday, November 11, 2018 in observance of Veterans Day

Veterans day The Hampton Library will be CLOSED Sunday, November 11, 2018 in observance of Veterans Day.

We will resume our regularly scheduled hours of operation on Monday, November 12 at 9:30 am.

Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and Nov. 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938. Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans—living or dead—but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.
