The Hillsdale Community Library offers a vast array of services to assist the members of our community.
Children and Young Adult Collections
The library maintains a separate collection of children and young adult books and materials. Throughout the summer, as well as during the school year, the library has very active children and young adult programs. For more information, please contact our Children’s Librarian.
Interlibrary loan service is available for patrons with requests which cannot be found in our library. If we don’t have it, we will try and get it for you from another public library.
We will give a detailed tour of the library to any group which requests it. The tour must be prearranged, but your group is welcome to come and browse informally if a tour is not necessary. We welcome class visits!
Public Access Computers
For patron use, the library has 10 public access computers available which are equipped with word processing, database, spreadsheet, and presentation software, and are connected to the internet.
Public Meeting Rooms
The library offers its meeting room(s) to public groups wishing to present programs or to hold meetings which serve the community’s needs. See meeting room policies for details.
Public Photocopier/Fax Machine
A photocopier is available for use in the library at a charge of 10 cents for 8 ½ x 11 black and white copies. Color copies are 25 cents per page. To fax, the charge is 1 dollar for every page. Faxes outside of the US are 5 dollars per page. A fax cover sheet is required to be used. These are provided at no cost.
Our Children’s Librarian visits area elementary and middle schools to present information on the library and our dedicated Children’s Programs.
Wireless Internet Access
Wireless 802.11b/g access is available in most areas of the building (including in the meeting rooms). Patrons must have their network card configured to use TCP/IP, and to obtain an IP address automatically via DHCP. Connection points (RJ45 jacks) can also be found throughout the building.
