Library Reopening Plan

HMPL Reopening Phase 2

Learn about Phase 3 here.

Our library is working hard to reopen. Here's the second phase of our plan. We are so excited to begin offering more services to you. Our digital collection is always available, but now you will have access to our holds-based curbside pickup! Don't forget to register for summer reading on Beanstack.

Ready, Set... Reopen! Phase 2: Curbside Pick-Up - June 15, 2020

Step 1: Requesting Materials

Use online catalog or call the library to place holds on items you would like to borrow.

Step 2: Wait for Holds

Wait to receive pick up notice via text, email, or phone call. It can take more than 3 weeks for the library to receive the item you requested.

Step 3: Arrive at the Library

Drive, walk, or bike to the library's curbside delivery area (on Church St.).

Step 4: Let Us Know You're Here!

Call 616.772.0874 and let us know you are here to pick up your holds. Make sure you have your library card & ID.

Let us know if you want a Mystery Bag or any of the Express books available. You can see what Express books we have available by checking the windows of the library on Church St. There are book covers taped to the inside of the window. If you see one that interests you please ask for it when you call to pick up your holds.
