News! Renew eBooks from your digital shelf.
We're giving you more time.
OverDrive Renewals Now you can renew the eBooks and audio books you've downloaded from OverDrive, the Hancock County Public Library's digital catalog:
  • You'll see the renew option on your OverDrive bookshelf three days before a title is scheduled to expire.
  • Titles can be renewed once.
If you liked that, you might like this . . .
Use the recommendation tool our librarians use: NoveList.
NoveList Logo If you liked Doctor Sleep, by Stephen King, you might like A Winter Haunting, by Dan Simmons.
If you liked Still Foolin' 'Em, by Billy Crystal, you might like This Time Together, by Carol Burnett.
How do we know? Our librarians use a book recommendation service called NoveList to help people find their next good read. And now, we're opening the database to our cardholders for a look behind the curtain.
Find author read-alikes, "best of" books by genre, award winners and feature articles to help you discover more of what you like. There's also a section for children's literature.
If we don't have it in the catalog, just ask us; and we'll probably get it.
Get back issues of magazines you missed . . . 
Our digital magazine service has other improvements, too.
Zinio Logo
Enjoy endless, free magazines on your smart phone, tablet, or PC using Zinio. And now, our digital magazine service has gotten even better:
  • For the first time, you can download issues of favorite magazines you missed (back to October 2012).
  • Check out multiple issues before viewing them in your Zinio account. (No more back and forth for each magazine.)
  • The library's landing page has three links under each cover:
    1. describes the magazine
    2. lets you download the latest issue
    3. lets you see the back issues that are available
Download magazines to a mobile device or stream them online through your computer browser.
