News & Notes from Hamlin Community Library

What do you know about your local library? Here in Hamlin, we’re always looking for ways to improve our service to the community. Your free library card grants you access to vast online resources, as well as onsite computer access, WiFi, computer assistance, a large collection that includes interlibrary loan of almost any resource you could need, a variety of programming and so much more. For a small fee, we offer fax services, copying, used books, and DVDs, and we’ll even take your passport photo.

Did we mention we’re a passport acceptance facility? Come on by, or call, and we’ll give you all of the information you need to complete the application process. The pandemic may have slowed us down, but we are still moving towards the goal of providing the most comprehensive service we can.

The Hamlin Community Library has seen a surge in new patrons, and we are thrilled! We hope everyone who visits the library feels welcomed and accommodated.

But we could use your help, too. Our Friends of the Library is disbanding after years of loyal support to the library. This means we are solely responsible now for our own fundraising. As a non-profit organization, we must raise 50% of our operating revenue through our own efforts. In order to meet that need, we are asking for your financial assistance. Check out the nifty PayPal buttons in the header and footer of this page.

Additionally, we are well aware that we couldn’t open our doors without generous volunteers, and an active Board of Trustees. If you are interested in getting involved as a volunteer or applying to be on the Board, please stop in or call the library. Ask for Lynn or Joy, and we will give you more information about the opportunities available. We want to do everything we can to remain relevant for many years to come.

We look forward to meeting you soon!

November 1st we are implementing winter hours. We will be open Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm. Those hours will be subject to change based on how busy we are, so feel free to check our website,, for up-to-date information, or as always you can drop in or give us a call at (570) 689-0903.
