Placing a Hold
Holds may be placed on OCLN materials by phone or online and picked up on the Hull library’s front porch.
Please let us know if you’d prefer an email or a phone call for your Hold notifications.
We ask patrons to wear a mask and practice social distancing when picking up their items.

Getting a Library Card
If you need a library card there are two ways in which to get one.
Call the library and register for one by phone. Your new card can be picked up at the library when it’s ready.
Register for an e-card by visiting  OCLN Online User Registration.

With your library card you’ll have access to our many digital services including online newspapers, Ancestry, Overdrive/Libby, Hoopla, digital magazines, Mango languages, and many other reference databases.
Audiobooks, books, DVDs, and many online resources are available 24/7 with your valid library card.

Returning Items
Returns can be dropped off in the red book return located in the Fire Station’s foyer, the metal book drop located in the HPL parking area or on the wood cart on the front porch of the library.

If you have returned library materials but notice they are still checked out on your library card do not be alarmed.
Returned materials and materials received in Transit for holds are quarantined for 72 hours before circulating to ensure patron safety.
These materials are not subject to late fees.
