Library News : UPDATE: Schedule
Posted by rsanders on 2021/5/10 15:28:41 (6 reads)

UPDATE: Hart County Library is currently operating on a limited schedule. We're open from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM on Mondays and Fridays, and 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

We are open to the public during these hours (masks are strongly encouraged), but we're still operating our optional "Porch Pickup" for reserved books/materials, as well. Give us a call at 706-376-4655 for additional information.

We're not doing copies or faxes just now, but we have public computers available (please call to reserve a time), or, if you just need a document printed, send it in an e-mail to hartlibrarynews@yahoo.com (being sure to include your name and phone number) and we'll print the document and call you when it's available.

Library News : UPDATE: Donations
Posted by rsanders on 2020/7/3 10:00:00 (500 reads)

I hate to make this announcement, because, as a rule, we appreciate the generous book donations we get here. PLEASE HANG ONTO YOUR DONATIONS FOR NOW. I can appreciate that a lot of folks are taking this time to clean house and get rid of things, but we don't have space for them, and we don't want to have to clean and quarantine them -- and just dropping them off outside the building or leaving them in the book deposit slot isn't helpful. Thank you.

Library News : REMINDER: Overdue books

Please remember that books that are due during this situation will not be charged any fines. You are free to return books or other materials in the bookdrop slot at any time, but any fines that you incur during this time will be waived. Please note that this applies to fines/late fees and not to fees based on a book being damaged or lost. We're trying to answer the telephone as best we can -- if you have any questions, please call us at (706) 376-4655.

Library News : Library closing today (March 16th) at 2:00 PM.

We have received new information, and with Hart County Schools closing, the Hart County Library will be closing for the time being, most likely until the end of the month. As noted before, this may change, but we’re trying to do our part to keep the community healthy.

From the Illinois Library Association: “While normally public libraries may invite children to come to the library in the event of an emergency school closing, this is not the best course of action when trying to curb a contagious disease. Because containment works best when all organizations participate, many libraries and other cultural organizations are deciding to close while the schools are closed.”

As previously mentioned, we are cancelling all programming (including storytimes) and meetings until the end of March -- and all fines/late fees incurred during this situation will be waived. We will make further announcements as the situation develops.

Please remember that we do have online resources – Recorded Books and eRead Kids – available at all times with your library card. Our Wi-Fi signal (available outside the building even when we’re closed) will continue to operate 24/7.

Please stay calm, take all necessary precautions, and take care of yourselves and your loved ones. We’ll post updates as additional information becomes available.
