Huron County Library Online Catalogue Unavailable
From May 13-17 our online catalogue will be unavailable as we will be making changes to the database. During this time you will not be able to search the catalogue, place holds, renew your items online or checkout any downloadable ebooks or audiobooks.
Patrons will still be able to borrow, renew and return items in person at the branch. As there may be some delays in service, we apologize for any inconvenience.
