Welcome to the Hopewell Branch of the Mercer County Library System!
My name is Andrea Merrick, Branch Manager at the Hopewell Branch Library. Let me introduce you to the Branch staff – Bob, Hope, Diane, Donna, Jamey, Kelly, and Robin are all ready to assist you at the Circulation Desk. At the Reference Desk, you will be helped by Connie, Anna or Kristin, or our Youth Services Librarians, Briana and Amanda.
Here are some quick facts about the Hopewell Branch and our services:
There are over 49,442 adult and children’s print items available for circulation.
Patrons visited the Branch 134,472 times in 2015 and 213,408 items were circulated.
Please take advantage of our exciting variety of adult and children’s programming – schedules may be found at the Branch, online at www.mcl.org and in the Hopewell Valley News. In 2015, the Branch offered 309 adult programs and 665 children’s programs.
We have over 8,700 DVDs and Blu-rays for adults and children.
We are always adding to our large audiobook collection for adults and children - over 2,000 books-on-CD and over 259 Playaways. A Playaway is a pre-loaded digital audio player.
Our diverse music collection is always growing - now we have over 2,400 CDs.
The Library System’s audiovisual collection as a whole has grown with the introduction of hoopla and freegal – borrow free music, audiobooks and videos for use on your computer, tablet or phone.
You can take a free, one-on-one computer class at the Branch - just talk to Anna! She can tailor a class to fit your needs – nothing is too basic. Anna also offers many classes on Web 2.0 – eBooks and eReaders, social networking, blogging, and twitter, to name a few. If you have any questions about our online services, ask and a librarian will help you.
We are always happy to hear your suggestions – please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out a comment form. If you would like us to consider purchasing a title, you may either tell us directly or use the Library System’s Suggest for Purchase form.
Hope to see you soon and often!
