On Saturday evening, October 8, and continuing into Sunday, the library's system application will be undergoing some maintenance. During this time the library catalog and access to eResources may be unavailable. We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause.
All HCPL locations will be closed Monday, October 10 for Staff In-Service Day.
Local Author Resources
The Library recognizes the literary efforts of local authors by including their works in the Local Author Shelf Program when possible. We also provide information about self-publishing, locating review sources, or finding a local writer’s group. The library also has online and print resources to help authors hone their craft.
The Library’s professional selection staff evaluates each published work or media production according to our Materials Selection Policy. If you are a local indie or self-published author, your work can become part of the library’s collection. Find out how!
