Honoring the Best

Honorees Michele and Ben with Woody on the side
On the 25th of June 2016 these two ( Ben Hall & Michele Johnson) were honored for all that they have done for the Hog Hammock Public Library.  We as a family at the Hog Hammock Public Library will truly miss the love that was put into the duties of the two.  Michele as a librarian has brought this library beyond great. The hours that she has spent will not go unnoticed. I as a trainee under you will continue to do the best that I can to make this legacy live on. Last, but not least Mr. Ben. Your services at the library as the President will continue on through the works of Mrs. Tucker. We as a family once again will truly miss these two.

Cultural Day

Save the Date!




Cultural Day is October 17, 2015. The festival is Sapelo Island's annual celebration of our Gullah-Geechee culture. Events and activities include musical performances, cultural demonstrations, Gullah-Geechee food, arts and crafts vendors and more!

The guest author at the Hog Hammock Public Library booth will be Sapelo's own Gracie Chandler, who also is a library trustee.

Her new novel, Free to Be, is the story of Crecie, an enslaved girl who struggles to embrace freedom when the Union army arrives on the Sea Islands. Crecie must remove the shackles of her mind and find her power in her changing world.
