 About Us

Hart County Library is a Georgia PINES Library. Georgia Library Public Information Network for Electronic Services, or PINES, is Georgia's public library automation and lending network for 249 libraries in 127 counties. PINES is an initiative of the Georgia Public Library Service, a unit of the University System of Georgia. Fifty percent of Georgia's population and 44 of Georgia's 58 public library systems rely on the PINES network for their library service. PINES creates a statewide "borderless library" that eliminates geographic and socio-economic barriers and provides equal access to information for all Georgians. Georgians with a PINES library card have access to materials beyond what is available on their local shelves and enjoy the benefits of a shared collection of 7.7 million books and materials that can be delivered to their home library with no charge to the library user that contributes to a more educated Georgia through lifelong learning.

By the time she arrives in Tucson, she has acquired a completely unexpected child and must somehow come to terms with both motherhood and the necessity for putting down roots. Hers is a story about love and friendship, abandonment and belonging, and the discovery of surprising resources in apparently empty places
