Support the Library

Support Us

There are many ways to support the library. If you like and value what we do, consider a contribution of time or money.

Materials Donation & The Ground Floor

Donate Used Materials

The library accepts gently used book donations both for the library's collection and on behalf of the Friends of HPL, which operates The Ground Floor, a used book store in the lower level of the library.

Donated materials are inspected by staff first, who select items suitable for the library collection. Donors may be given a receipt for such gifts, but the library does not give appraisals of value. Gifts are not returned to the donor.

Books may be left at the The Ground Floor desk. Magazines, textbooks, DVDs, music CDs, audiobooks, vinyl albums, and jigsaw puzzles are also accepted, as long as they are in good condition.

Items Not Accepted:

  • VHS Tapes
  • Encyclopedias
  • Dictionaries
  • Newspapers

Shop at The Ground Floor

The Ground Floor is a coffee and used book shop that is run by volunteers and operated by the Friends of HPL. Located in the lower level of the library, it offers coffee, snacks, and gift items for readers of all ages - as well as used books and magazines. Become a Friend of HPL and receive 20% off all gift items! All proceeds from The Ground Floor support library programs and services.
