HMCPL Keeps You Connected

Dear Library Patrons,

There are many ways that the library can still serve you during this unprecedented time. 

Our reopening plan will be in phases. On May 6, we began offering curbside service at most of our locations. Please visit our curbside page for details.

Effective June 1, Phase 2 of our reopening plan will go into effect:

  • Public computers will be available for appointment only at all locations except Cavalry Hill, from 12:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. Monday-Friday. Downtown, Bailey Cove and Madison will also have Saturday appointments available from 12:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.
  • To schedule an appointment, call your local branch. Walk ups will not be accepted.
  • Appointments are for 45 minutes max.
  • Mobile printing is also available. Exact change or payment by check only. Visit our mobile printing site for more information.
  • Cavalry Hill branch remains closed due to building access restrictions. However, the Bookmobile will be on site Tuesdays from 2:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. to pass out summer reading materials and book returns.

Phase Three of our reopening plan will be announced at a later date and that will include open hours for patrons, with capacity restrictions. 

Resources available:

 The library has purchased access to Hoopla for three months: Read e-books, watch television shows and movies! Must have your library card number and pin to register. Click here for instructions on how to reset your pin.








During this time of closure, the HMCPL is committed to providing literacy activities to our youngest patrons and their parents. Our youth librarians will be recording storytimes and book talks while the library is closed. We understand the importance of continuity and routine with very young children and a friendly, familiar face can ease anxiety during uncertain times.

  • Stay tuned as our librarians doing what they do best- sharing stories that they love. We will share them on our YouTube channel as well as our Facebook page.
  • Storytimes will be posted on YouTube every Tuesday and Thursday at 9:00 a.m.
  • We have a new Friday series called "Crafting with Ms. Haley." New videos will be uploaded on Fridays at 9:00 a.m.
  • STEM on Wednesdays every Wednesday at 10:00 a.m.
  • Play Ms. Haley's Picture Book Bingo- Click here!
