Check out and register for all of our programs and events on the Kids' page of our website at http://www.hchlibrary.org/kids/kids.php

New Look and better features!

Log in to the HCH website and check out our new catalog features! Online searching is easier, you can set your email preferences to be notified of due dates and check outs, choose to save your check out history (great for summer reading), place holds, and other nifty things! We can also link kids cards to one parent (we need to do this at the library, just let us know you want it!) so you can easily see what everyone in the family has checked out. Take a look and let us know what you think!

Gardening for Little Ones

Gardening for Little Ones was a big hit today! We had many helpers come by to plant vegetables and herbs in our garden. They had a ton of fun digging, planting, and organizing our many plants. In addition to tomatoes, cauliflowers, peppers, basil, parsley, oregano, rosemary, we also have some mystery vines growing along the back gate. We will have to wait and see what grows this summer! Come on by the library to see what is growing, water some plants, or pull some weeds.

Take a look at the fun we had today!





 Don't forget to check out and sign up for our other summer programs!
