Harborfields Public Library
Receives Outstanding Service Award
At the annual SCLS (Suffolk Cooperative Library System)
meeting, Libraries in Nassau & Suffolk Counties were presented
with the NYLA (New York State Library Association) Outstanding
Service Award, for the services they offered to their communities
during Super Storm Sandy. In the days and weeks following the
storm, Harborfields Library was also without full power, but had
essential staff on-hand to assist with Internet access, provide
power for charging mobile devices and also selected reading
material for many patrons. This award is proudly hanging in the
lobby. Pictured left to right is Kevin Verbesey, SCLS Director,
Carol Albano, Harborfields Library Director and Dennis Flavin,
President, SCLS Board of Trustees.

Drive Safely A.P.W.
Monday & Tuesday, January 13th &
14th, 6:30 - 9:30 PM
by Pamela “Rainy” Flesness
In the Gallery January 2nd - 30th
“Rainy” is the name this artist often signs to her paintings. It is a symbol of personal events that have shaped her
life and created the artist she has become. As a self-taught
artist she has developed her own style through reading,
practice and observation. She approaches painting through
her love of science, philosophy, history, and the human
psyche. “In our concrete world, we perceive shapes, forms, and colors to be real and
enduring. However, they are just temporary patterns at a particular point in time and
space” says the artist.
Original Bisque Snowbabies, Santas & Elves
Joe and Dorothy Haber will share their special collection in our Reference Room
Showcase from December 21st through January. There are different theories about the
inspiration for these figurines, but many believe they were inspired by Admiral Peary’s
exploration of the far North. The figurines were produced from 1909 until shortly after
WWII. The display will include pieces that still have soot on them because they were
retrieved from the factory in Thuringia, Germany that was bombed by the Allies.

Best Wishes On Your
Retirement Mrs. Hasher
On January 9th, Eleanor
Hasher will be retiring after 20
wonderful years as a Children’s
Librarian. Mrs. Hasher has a
talent for creating programs that
children adore and her love of
children’s literature was evident
in everything she did for our
community. You may remember Mrs. Hasher reading aloud
from Grandpa’s Slippers, Go Away, Big Green Monster! and
Sideways Stories from Wayside School. She was never
without her bag of magic tricks which she would unveil at her
program, Stories and More. If you ever walked down the
hallway by the Kitchen Meeting Room, heard the sound of
children laughing and smelled something delicious, you knew
Mrs. Hasher’s Kool Kooking program was in progress!
It is difficult to put into words the many ways in which
Eleanor Hasher has touched the lives of the children in our
community. As a children’s librarian she put a book in a
child’s hands, maybe for the first time, and watched as their
eyes lit up. She has helped the children in our community
become life-long readers and witnessed them continue
to visit the library as teens and beyond. In so doing, Mrs.
Hasher provided one of the most vital services a librarian can
provide to the community.
Another chapter of our Library’s history comes to a close
as we say farewell and wish Mrs. Hasher a very happy retirement as a new chapter of her life begins.
