Hart County Library is a
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.
