It’s a tiny, 5-centimetre-by-8-centimetre piece of plastic that connects you to everything. What is it? A library card of course, and we think everybody should have one.
A library card, FREE right now thanks to generous community
sponsors, connects you to everything you could want to grow your mind. Read on
to learn more.
What does my library card do for me?
You can borrow physical materials – the newest best-selling
fiction and non-fiction titles; books to learn a new skill from; movies; video
games; music; audiobooks and so much more. Visit mhpl.bibliocommons.com to

Your library card also allows you to register for the many
programs we offer like family storytimes, playgroups, book clubs, video game

How do I get a card?
All you need to do is bring a piece of photo ID to the
library and we’ll hook you up. If you already have a card and need to renew it
you can complete our online renewal form.
Now we humbly ask you tell everyone you know about this.
Thanks in advance.
