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 - Hope, Diane, Donna, Judy, and Robin are all ready to assist you at the Circulation Desk. At the Reference Desk, you will be helped by Karen, Anna, John or our Youth Services Librarians, Briana and Connie.
Here are some quick facts about the Hopewell Branch and our services:
There are over 49,798 adult and children’s print items available for circulation.
Patrons visited the Branch 140,861 times in 2013 and 219,273 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 2013, the Branch offered 340 adult programs and 523 children’s programs. To register for programming, please call 609-737-2610.
We have over 7,600 DVDs for adults and children.
We are always adding to our large audiobook collection for adults and children - over 1,800 books-on-CD and over 250 Playaways. A Playaway is a pre-loaded digital audio player.
Our diverse music collection is always growing - now we have over 2,700 CDs.
The Library System’s audiovisual collection as a whole has grown with the introduction of hoopla – 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 Karen! Karen can tailor a class to fit your needs – nothing is too basic. Anna offers many classes on Web 2.0 – eBooks and eReaders, social networking, blogging, and twitter, to name a few.
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!
