Search and reserve library items online by clicking the link to the library's online catalog on the left.
Download free eBooks and eAudiobooks at cloudLibrary by bibliotheca. Your Library Card ID is the number on your library card. Your Password/PIN is either something you set when you first logged in, or the phone number you provided when you signed up for a library card. It seems that a bunch of different formats work for your phone number, but if you're having trouble, try this format: "207-929-1234".
Another method is to visit https://hollis.biblionix.com/catalog/, log in there in the top right with these same credentials, and then click the bibliotheca cloudLibrary link under the orange Electronic Resources section. If you see the message "Sorry, access to electronic resources is suspended until issues are resolved. Please see My Account for details.", then you must ask the Hollis Center Public Library director to renew or unblock your library card before cloudLibrary will work for you.

The library is a geocaching spot!
Geocaching is using a GPS to locate specific containers, called geocaches, at certain coordinates worldwide! Find the container to sign the logbook within, and take an item from the geocache.
Visit the library and become a sleuth to find the hidden geocache!
The library is also a Pokémon Go stop, also known as a Pokéstop!
Download the Pokémon Go application on your phone to locate and capture virtual Pokémon. Visit the library to get rewards!
Story Time is every Monday from 10:00 to 11:00 (except holidays when the library is closed).
Please join us for an interactive story that begins with a stretch. After we read the story, we will go on an active adventure related to the story. Have fun after blowing bubbles, singing a song or playing a game.
Many story time participants play with LEGOs, blocks, and other toys we have in the youth room after story time.
Summer Reading Program: The 2023 Summer Reading Program has concluded, and was a smashing success: we gardened, we nurtured a kindness garden, made a community puzzle, and explored a nature walk!
Funds for the summer reading program were graciously provided by the Narragansett Number One Foundation. This nonprofit corporation donates to other nonprofit 501(c)(3) public organizations in Hollis and the surrounding areas. For more information, visit http://www.nnof.org/.
