The safety of Hammond Public Library patrons and staff is our top concern.
The Hammond Public Library will be closed until April 6. All of our e-resources will be available while the library is closed. We will post any updates on the Library's Facebook, page found here
If you have items checked out, keep them. We're moving all due dates so that nothing will be due when we are closed. We'd much rather you stay home than venture out to return a book. During this closure, there will be no accumulation of fines or fees on items already checked out.
Your holds will not expire or trigger during this closure. If you had something waiting on the holds shelf, it will still be there when we reopen. You will also not lose your spot in the holds queue for items you're waiting on.
If you're stuck indoors, download an ebook, audiobook, or magazine. Or you can stream music, or download videos. Click here to get started!
