Don’t miss all the library has to offer

William Bradford Huie

Library of Hartselle

We have had a great summer at the William Bradford Huie Library of Hartselle, with 1,198 participants in our summer reading program. We had some great prizes this year including four Amazon Fire tablets, gift bags and gift cards from local merchants. A great big shout out to all the parents who took time out of their busy summer to bring their kids to the programs. We also want to thank Mayor Randy Garrison, our city council, Rita Lee, our library board and the merchants in downtown Hartselle that supported our programs. Lastly, a warm thank you to all of our volunteers for their participation and support.

Looking ahead, our programs for the fall include pre-k story times, kids paint night, adult paint night, movie nights and much more. Announcements for our programs can be found on the City of Hartselle’s Facebook page, the Friends of Huie Library’s Facebook page, or our calendar of events. Stop by the library to pick up a copy each month.

We also want to remind everyone about our digital programs. We offer two services, Libby and Hoopla. Libby contains eBooks, audiobooks and magazines. Libby works well on smartphones and Chromebooks. Unfortunately, it will not work on Amazon tablet devices.

Hoopla works on many devices from phones, laptops, tablets and Roku TVs. All you need is an active library card and the Hoopla app to have access to eBooks, audiobooks, movies, television series’ and music. Patrons are allowed seven checkouts per month on Hoopla. “Binge passes” are also available that allow you to check out an entire series (book, movie or TV series) using only one of your allowed seven checkouts. This digital platform also has no waiting on anything they offer.

If you haven’t been to visit us recently, please stop by and see what we have to offer you and your family. Our hours are Monday 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. and Tuesday – Friday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Happy reading!
