Curbside Pickup Begins June 22
We are pleased to announce that beginning on June 22, the Library will resume operations with zero contact, curbside pickup of library materials, Monday to Friday 12-2pm, Saturday 11am-12pm. The InterLibrary loan system remains suspended, so books may be borrowed only from the Kemmerer Library collection, not from other MAIN libraries at this time. You can search our books through this link: search the Kemmerer Library collection.
When you receive notification that your item(s) is available, please contact us by phone or email to let us know which day you will be coming to pick up. On the selected day, your item will be ready for pickup from the front of the Library between 12 and 2pm (Monday to Friday) or 11am and 12pm (Saturday). Your items will be in a bag with your first name and last initial. The Library building remains closed to patrons at this time. Please remember to continue to practice physical distancing and to wear a facemask near others when you are picking up!

In addition to reading logs, children will find suggested reading lists, mini games and fun activities to keep them busy through the summer, all online.
Please direct all questions, including requests for new library cards, to desk@hardinglibrary.org.
Reflections on a Special Community
This week, “Reflections on a Special Community” features a contribution from Jean Pfeffer. Jean’s affiliation with Kemmerer Library began when it was housed in a small room in the municipal building. As a volunteer, a fundraiser, a supporter and a current member of the Board, Jean traces the evolution of the Library. In this time of physical distancing, Jean reminds us that libraries build connections. She reflects on this essential role that Kemmerer Library has played over the years, and especially now as residents have looked for new ways to come together. We hope Jean’s entry will encourage you to “Tell Your Story” about your life in Harding Township. Reminisce, reflect, share. Bring us down your memory lane. Tell us what makes living here special for you. All are welcome to contribute — newcomers, long-timers, young or old. You can read Jean’s reflection by clicking here.
