New Interlibrary Loan System Great news! You can now request ILLs yourself, directly from our new state ILL system. Here’s what you do…

Click on Login (upper right)
Select your library – Hancock Town Library
Then use the login and password that you use for all of our digital offerings. (Contact us at the library if you need coaching on that. Stop by or call 525-4411.)
That should get you in. From there you just do a search, request what
you want, and then submit (lower right hand side of page). Then the
request goes to me where we approve it and DONE.
This is not to say that you can’t still just send our crack interlibrary loan team your requests. We are more than happy to continue requesting for you. But wanted to know there’s a more direct way now!

Kanopy ~ Free streaming movies! Thanks to the Friends of the Hancock Town Library, we are very pleased to announce that the popular on-demand film streaming service Kanopy is available for free to library patrons at the Hancock Town Library. Library card holders can access Kanopy and sign up to start streaming films instantly by visiting http://hancocknh.kanopy.com. Films can be streamed from any computer, television, mobile device or platform by downloading the Kanopy app for iOS, Android, AppleTV, Chromecast or Roku.

Need help signing in to our catalog or downloading ebooks or audiobooks from OverDrive? Call to make an appointment with Amy for help! We’ll do our best to get your digital library working for you. 525-4411.

Just a reminder that we have a few museum passes to offer our patrons, thanks to the Friends of the Library. Our list includes Canterbury Shaker Village, Cheshire Children’s Museum in Keene, the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, The Fells Historic Estate & Gardens in Newbury, NH, Montshire Museum of Science in Norwich, VT, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. In the past, donors have generously contributed passes to their favorite museums. If you have a special museum in mind and would like to do the same, let us know!

Wondering if we have that new book you just read about? Is it 10:00 at night and you really want to know? No worries!  You can check our catalog (https://hancock.biblionix.com) and reserve or renew books from the comfort of your own home. Come in and we’ll show you just how easy it is!
