Beginning December 18th 2020 We are stopping in person appointments for the time being due to an increase of COVID-19 cases in and around Epping.

We will still be continuing Curbside services in the meantime. See details below on how to set up an order for pickup.

Also, as long as you have a library card # with us you can take advantage of our digital services. Overdrive (and its app Libby) provide access to thousands of digital books, magazines, and audiobooks. Kanopy provides access to a huge streaming library of films, documentaries, and children’s programing. You can find out how to access these services @ http://www.eppinglibrary.com/services/overdrive-digital-library/ . Please email harvmitch@gmail.com with any questions about digital access or if you’d like to set up a new library account.

We want to thank our patrons for being patient while we navigate this year and look forward to seeing you all again in person soon. Have a safe and happy holidays!

The Harvey-Mitchell Memorial Library aims to be Epping’s center for culture, entertainment, and knowledge. We offer a wide array of books, films, audio and other media along with regular events for all ages.

During the building’s closure, we’re allowing sign-up online to get a library account. If you are interested in opening an account to check out materials, access our Overdrive service or Kanopy, please email harvmitch@gmail.com with your name, address, and phone number, and we’ll set you up with a library account. The cards issued online will be temporary until we reopen, at which point you can continue to use your account after providing proof of Epping residency.
