June 2020 Update!
The library is still closed to the public and staff continues to work remotely as well as in the building. However, in response to the Governor’s Stay At Home Order 2.0, we are open for Entryway Pickup & Home Delivery service. And the book drop is open so please feel free to return library materials anytime that is convenient to you.
There are three ways to reserve materials (books, DVDs, audiobooks, magazines):
Reserve online at hancock.biblionix.com
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Call us at 525-4411
We will contact you when your items are ready for pickup.
Items will be available to be picked up Mondays & Wednesdays 2-6, Tuesdays & Thursdays 10-5, and Saturdays 10-1. Items will be quarantined for 72 hours then wiped with disinfectant. Staff will wear gloves and masks while working with materials.
The state library has not yet resumed the interlibrary loan service so please know that your reserves are just for items we hold here in Hancock.
Hope to wave at you soon!

Library WIFI update: we’ve purchased two WIFI extenders for the library so that our reach is a bit further. You can now sit in the back parking lot or on the street in front of the library to catch our WIFI. Look for Hancock Town Library. Passcode is eight zeros in a row, like this: 00000000
Stay safe everyone!
