Havre-Hill County Libary offering services


After being closed for over a month, the Havre-Hill County library is again ready to check out books to the public. For the time being, the process will be more involved than we’d like it to be, for you and for us, but we have figured out a way to make the printed collection available while adhering to safety guidelines.

We are carefully sanitizing all items as they are returned to us, but the best protection that we can provide is time. With that in mind, all items are quarantined for two weeks after they have been returned before they may be checked out again. This will mean longer wait times for holds, but it is necessary for the safety and well-being of the entire community.

Materials may be checked out and picked up by appointment. To arrange this, please call us at 265-2123, email us at [email protected], or message us on Facebook or Instagram. Our entire catalog may be browsed at http://havrehilllibrary.org . For those who are homebound and living in Havre, we can deliver items. Please reach out to us to arrange this.

We are still offering our online services. MontanaLibrary2Go.org is our robust digital catalog of eBooks and audiobooks. These may be checked out using a wide variety of electronic devices. Please contact us if you need any help setting this up. Chilton Motor Manuals, research databases, news and genealogy resources may also be accessed through our website at havrehilllibrary.org .

Story Time is being streamed at 10:15 a.m. Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, via our Facebook page. Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:15 a.m., we are offering Curiosity Corner, where we read and discuss non-fiction books. Every weekday at 11:15 a.m. is Light Reading, where we read chapter books out loud. Please join our children’s librarian Ashley Martin-Verity for any or all of these events via our Facebook page.

We will remain closed until state and local government deems it safe for us to re-open our doors. Everyone at the library understands that some of the services the community values most will still be missing until we can once again open the building to the public. Our first priority is health and safety of our community members, but we are working hard on finding ways to offer as many of our services as possible during this emergency. Our fondest hope is that when we are able to re-open, we will all have learned and grown from this experience. Please take care during these unprecedented and trying times. Our thoughts are with you all.

Your Team at the Havre-Hill County Library
