Upcoming Renovations and Remodeling

As part of the library’s continuous effort to improve services to the community, we are undergoing a renovation to the Youth Services Department as well as some changes to the front lobby area. We are finishing up a large shifting of the collection as well.

Check out our What's New For Helen Plum page for updates.

Curious about using an eReader?

Have you ever wondered if you would enjoy reading books electronically? Are you traveling and don’t want to pack a pile of books to read? We have the solution!

The Library has eReaders (three Kindle Paperwhites, one Kindle Keyboard, and three Nook Simple Touch eReaders) available for checkout for adult cardholders. These devices are pre-loaded with current fiction and nonfiction bestsellers. Check them out to discover if you like this type of reading format or simply want a reading change of pace!

eReaders may be checked out by Helen Plum Library patrons over the age of 18 with a valid HPL library card.

Checkout time is three weeks and eReaders are not renewable. There is no grace period for returning eReaders to the Library.

Come in and try them out!
