Public Meeting Rooms

The library offers its meeting room(s) to public groups wishing to present programs or to hold meetings which serve the community's needs.


Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan service is available for patrons with requests which cannot be found in our library. If we don't have it, we will try and get it for you from another public library.


Public Access Computers

For patron use, the library has 10 public access computers available which are equipped with word processing, database, spreadsheet, and presentation software, and are connected to the internet.


Wireless Internet Access

Wireless 802.11b/g access is available in most areas of the building (including in the meeting rooms). Patrons must have their network card configured to use TCP/IP, and to obtain an IP address automatically via DHCP. For more Wi-Fi Hotspots in Hillsdale, visit jwire.com. Connection points (RJ45 jacks) can also be found throughout the building.


Children and Young Adult Collections

The library maintains a separate collection of children and young adult books and materials. Throughout the summer, as well as during the school year, the library has very active children and young adult programs. For more information, please contact our Children's Librarian.


School Visits

Our Children's Librarian visits area elementary and middle schools to present information on the library and our dedicated Children's Programs.


Library Tours

We will give a detailed tour of the library to any group which requests it. The tour must be prearranged, but your group is welcome to come and browse informally if a tour is not necessary. We welcome class visits!

A photocopier is available for use in the library at a charge of 10 cents for 8 ½ x 11 black and white copies. Color copies are 25 cents per page. To fax, the charge is 1 dollars for every page. Faxes outside of the US are 5 dollars per page. A fax cover sheet is required to be used. These are provided at no cost.
