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, Eileen, Jewell, Judy, Robin and Ross 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:

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 email@example.com 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!
