There is no doubt we are living in uncertain times. The Harrison County Public Library wants you to know that no matter what, we are here for you. That is for certain. While we are all doing our best to flatten the curve by staying and working from home, please know that your library staff are staying connected and working to find new ways to bring you needed information and resources.
As much as HCPL would like to reopen, the health of our community is most important to us. We are working with key leaders to determine the date when it will be safe to reopen. Until then we are always open 24 hours a day, seven days a week at www.hcpl.lib.in.us with access to eBooks, eMagazines, downloadable audiobooks and other eResources.
Library Wi-Fi remains on at all library locations and can be accessed outside the buildings and in the back parking lot at the Main Branch in Corydon.
Material due dates are extended until after May 11. No library materials will be due during the March 17- May 3 closure.
To ensure library patrons have access to library eResources library card privileges have been renewed for all library cards that would have expired January 1 through June 30, 2020. The new card expiration is now December 30, 2020. Harrison County residents who do not currently have a library card can access library eResources by applying for a Digital Access Card for eResources, or by applying for a Digital Access Card for eBooks, eMagazines and audio books.
During the closure staff will monitor the website’s Ask a Librarian and Contact Us features and return telephone messages. Please check the library website, or Facebook page for up-to-date information.
