LIBRARY CONSTRUCTION AND REPAIR
Exterior repairs to the library are scheduled to begin the last week in August. They will be quite extensive and expected to last a couple of months. Every effort will be made to keep the library open and functioning as normal, but some disruptions may occur. Safety is also a major concern but do be vigilant when visiting the library during this period.
Major renovations have been made to the interior of the library, now it is time to do some work to the exterior. Soon the project will be completed the Hull Public Library will be even better.

The Hull Public Library is gifted with one of the treasures of the Victoria Era a “Camperdown Elm”. Grafting a weeping variety with and upright trunk creates the “Camperdown Elm”, also known as the “Umbrella Elm” and the “Weeping Elm”. The parents of all “Camperdown Elms” are freak seedlings of Scotch Elm and Ulmus Galba found on the estate of the Earl of Camperdown near Dundee, Scotland prior to 1850. The “Camperdown Elm” is a form of a dwarf forest tree. It develops massive limbs making a branch pattern that ascends twists and curves back to make an interesting fountain shape. The exact date of the library’s “Camperdown Elm” is not known but it is believed to have been planted in the late 1800’s.
