Our History
The Town of Hamlin was created as the "Town of Union," but was renamed in 1861 as the Town of Hamlin in honor of Lincoln's first Vice President Hannibal Hamlin. Hamlin was initially a part of the town of Northampton. The town of Murray split from Northampton in 1807, and split again into Union and Clarkson on December 14, 1852. The North Star School District No. 11 was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.

Covid19 is affecting how we all do business for the foreseeable future. The status of the Town of Hamlin's operations and programs are:

Library - The Hamlin Public Library has made the difficult decision to close the library to the public until further notice. The decision was made after consulting with county and local officials who have encouraged social distancing to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 (coronavirus). The health and safety of our patrons, staff and community needs to be our highest priority.
We do not know when we will re-open. We will continue to monitor the situation and work with health, county and local leaders as they make recommendations. For more information about our library, please visit our website (http://hamlinlibraryny.org/) or our Hamlin Public Library facebook page.
