To all of our researchers and genealogists;
We are in the process of having our newspaper collection digitally converted (over 100 years worth), therefore our microfilm has been sent away for three weeks. This is a huge financial project provided by the Hartington Library Foundation. Sorry for the inconvenience!
We ended the fiscal year in Sept of 2013, and we are thankful for all of the improvements we were able to make to the library this year.
This would not be possible without the support of our city budget, Foundation Board and Friends of the Library, and other generous donations throughout the year!

Myles and Bryson Baller, sons of Brandon and Traci Baller completed the “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” program at the Hartington Public Library.
This program was launched in April during National Library Week to instill the love of reading, get children ready for school, and to encourage more parent/child library visits. Books are logged and prizes are awarded along the way.
One of the best ways to encourage pre-reading skills is to spend time sharing books each and every day! Reading provides a solid foundation, a key to school and learning success. When you, as a parent, read to your child, you help him or her develop the skills they will need to learn to read by themselves.
If you are interested in learning more about this reading journey for your child, please stop by or call the Hartington Public Library at 402-254-6245.
