Holds Temporarily Disabled in Online Catalogue

This is to inform everyone that we have disabled the ability to place holds on our physical collection from our online catalouge while we are closed to the public.

Holds can still be placed on any Huron County Library ebook or audiobook in cloudLibrary – that remains the same. You can still search our online collections, and use them from home.

New! Online Registration for Temporary Library Card (Membership)

We’re now offering online registration for a temporary library card (membership)!

By getting a temporary library card (membership) you can access the majority of our online resources – from cloudLibrary to Tumblebooks and many in between.

As part of the introduction to online registration we’re giving new registrants access to both hoopla and Kanopy. (Note: if you’re not able to access Kanopy right away, please try again, as they are currently experiencing some technical difficulties). Access to these resources will be available to any new online registration until April 10, 2020 (date may be extended).

After this date it is recommended that you stop in at your local library branch and sign up for a physical library card (membership).
