Are you afraid when you packed away your Christmas decorations you also packed away the joy, peace, and hope you felt at Christmas? Remember Christmas is more than a feeling. Christmas is about receiving the Gift from God- His Son- Jesus. The only way you can keep this joy, peace, and hope is by growing in your faith through the power of the Holy Spirit. This is done by having a regular diet of Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Word- the B-I-B-L-E. Have a Blessed New Year as you grow in your faith and continue to experience lasting joy, peace, and hope that are available through Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gift-Jesus!

In late-summer of 2012, Hampton Public Library Director Kim Manning received an email on the List Serve for Iowa Public Libraries that stated the Clinton Public Library had a historical circulation desk for sale. The email included a picture of the desk, which resembled the old desk that used to be in the Hampton Public Library. The desk had since been removed and destroyed in the 1960s in an effort to modernize the library. Upon arriving at the Clinton Public Library, Kim saw the desk for WKH Ă&#x20AC;UVW WLPH DQG LW ZDV KXJH$Q
