Online Reference Grows

You may have noticed that the list of online reference books on the left side of this page has more than doubled. These are digital versions of print reference books which can be accessed by anyone with a Library Card from any of the three Hancock County libraries. All of them are accessible from any of the computers within the library. These materials are published by Thompson-Gale and Oxford Press, two very well established reputable publishers. They are excellent sources for school assignments and for locating information for personal use.

Calendar Issues

Our Google calendar at the top of this page is having some issues today. All of our events have shifted and are not on their correct days. In some cases they have been shifted back one day, but toward the end of the month, the events like the Library's closing for the holidays have been shifted back several days. If you click on an event on the calendar, a pop up will appear to give more information. These pop ups do list the correct days and times for the events.

I am assuming that this is a problem with Google's software and that they will have it fixed soon. If the calendar does not say we are closed on the 24th and 25th, you will know that the calendar is still having problems and the events listed are on the wrong days. If you need more information, please call the library during our open hours.

We start putting out the tax forms as we receive them after the first of January. Until then, you can look for information on the following web sites:
