Calling All Teens Summer Volunteers!!

Volunteer TodayAre you thinking ahead and looking for a place to volunteer this summer? Come to an orientation and learn more. Sessions are held the first Thursday of each month at 4:00 pm. If you are under 18, be sure to have your parent or guardian complete the application in advance. Volunteer hours are flexible! We hope to see you there.  

Accessing the Digital Media Catalog via the new HCPL.net

As you may have already noticed, our webpage has had something of a facelift.  With this has come a slight difference in how to access our Digital Media Catalog.  You will notice that the "HCPL Digital Media Catalog" icon is no longer in the center of the page.  But fear not!  There are several simple paths from our new homepage to our Digital Media Catalog.

The first path, and probably the easiest navigationally, is by clicking the blue icon on the right side of the page that reads "eBooks and More".

Adult Fiction News Alert!

Fiction AreaJust a little note to let folks know that the genres (i.e. mystery, westerns and science fiction) are now part of the larger fiction collection. What does that really mean? If you are looking for James Patterson or Janet Evanovich, you only have to look in ONE place! Every book they wrote will be right next to each other. If you are looking for the just your favorite genre, they are still really easy to find. The book labels will guide you and they are all clearly marked!  If ever you have a question, please come to the desk. We are always happy to help!  

How to Browse HCPL's Most Recently Added eBooks

Did you know that we've added 692 titles to our Digital Media Catalog in the past 30 days?  If you are already familiar with our Digital Media Catalog, browsing for recently added titles is relatively painless.  What follows is a step-by-step tutorial on how to do so.

First, head to HCPL's website, hcpl.net

Of course, if you are using an iPad, you can bypass this step by using the Overdrive app.  

Cowabunga Dude!

This is April  reporting live from the Northwest Library.  I am standing in front of the home of the newest members of the Northwest family.  Meet Michelangelo and Raphael, our two red eared slider turtles. Named after two of the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle characters, they have made their new home here at the Northwest branch. Although they are still settling in, they would love a visit and a warm welcome from our patrons. Now we have seen a variety of animals here at our branch. We have our friendly woodpeckers that come visit us every fall, and not too long ago Larry the Camel dropped by for a huge surprise. Our visitors have come and gone, but our turtles are here to stay.  Drop by, say hello, and don't forget the pizza!
