Library to Host a Weight Management Support Group

Beginning Sept 14, 2017, Thursdays at 5 PM, we will meet, get weighed, and talk about how to eat better, find an eating program that will work for each individual, figure out what each individual needs to fit weight loss and/or healthy eating into his or her life. This is NOT a “ladies’ only meeting”; nor is it specifically a weight loss group. We are planning a private weigh-in for about 20 minutes before a weekly meeting of about 30 minutes. Those who come late will need to weigh after the meeting is completed.
Barbara Libby, a former Weight Watchers leader of ten years experience, and Lisa Seymour, formerly a TOPS member, will facilitate the meetings. This group is not affiliated with Weight Watchers, TOPS, or any designated program group. Neither Barbara nor Lisa are registered dietitians. The purpose of the meetings is to share information, techniques, recipes, encouragement and support in regard to weight management.
If you are interested, have questions, or are ready to begin, please RSVP Barbara Libby at or call me at 744-6154. That first meeting will be organizational in content so attendance is especially important.

Essential Oils are gaining worldwide recognition for their versatility but their use is not new. Oils have been supporting holistic and wellness needs for the past 5,000+ years!

With a recent re-emergence in natural healthcare (which is picking up momentum year after year), Essential Oils have become part of our mainstream culture but there are still many questions that have been left unanswered:

– What are Essential Oils?
– What to look for in a high quality Essential Oils line?
– What is the best method of using Essential Oils?
– What Oils should be part of a daily routine?
– How can Essential Oils help specific health conditions?
– How to bring Essential Oils into your home?
– Who should use Essential Oils?
– What are the top ten Essential Oils that everyone should use?
– And many other questions!

Your Voice Counts!

The Town Budget and Warrant has been finalized, and again the library is in need of support.  Please get out and vote for your Town Officials on Tuesday, March 14, 2017, and consider attending the annual Town Meeting on Thursday, March 16 at 7:00 PM.  Both the Board of Selectmen and Budget Committee recommend level funding the Town’s contribution to the library, an amount that will not cover the proposed 2017 operating budget.

The Library Board of Trustees does not spend your tax dollars frivolously.  Town funds are used to keep the library  open and convenient for our patrons.  Our proposed budget will cost the taxpayers just pennies of their tax dollar.  A reduction in revenue will result in cuts to hours of operation, new book purchases, and library programming/services.  We understand there are residents who don’t have a need for what the library has to offer.  However, please review our statistics over the last several years.  There are many people, especially families, who depend on access to the library, and its resources.

One of the advantages of living in a small town is the ability to actually make a difference in our community.  Hill Public Library lovers,  you must use your voices to ensure your library remains viable and fully funded!
