Celebrating Library Card Sign-Up Month

It's that time of year again!  We want to remind you that library cards are awesome, and they are free!  A HCPl library card grants you access to a catalog of books from not just throughout the county, but the entire country, that can be delivered right to your neighborhood branch.  You also get online access to research databases, from home, work, school, or wherever you go that have internet.  Plus, you can download or stream digital content, like movies, eBooks, magazines, and more.  ...
