Library welcomes returning patrons

If you have not had a chance to stop by the William Bradford Huie Library of Hartselle for a visit recently, we hope you will make time soon. The librarians have been extremely busy working to improve our library space.

Thanks to the fantastic grant we received recently, we have needed to make space for our new books. After a great deal of planning, we decided a change to the layout of the library was necessary. With the plan in hand, our two amazing library assistants, Alex and Sarah, jumped into action.

Our fiction and non-fiction books’ locations have now been swapped. This has provided additional space for our fiction collection, and the non-fiction books still have room to grow. We also shelved the mystery books in with the main fiction collection, giving us room to move the young adult collection to the glass room where the mystery books had been shelved. This gives both the young adult and juvenile fiction collections room to expand.

With the help of city workers from the Parks and Rec Department, we were able to rearrange existing shelving to provide more efficient use of shelf space and to create a more open and welcoming space.

Our library is growing and adapting to our “new normal.” We are open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. A mask that covers both mouth and nose is required to be worn at all times when inside the building. A temperature check is also required upon entering the library; the temperature check station is located just inside the entrance door. We also offer online book and DVD reservations and curbside pickup.

For information about these services or other services offered by the library, please contact us at 256-773-9880. Hope to see you soon!
