Nationwide Book Embargo

Sign the petition here: https://ebooksforall.org/
  • Effective November 1, 2019, Macmillan and its subsidiaries are restricting your library‘s ability to purchase e-books.
  • The Half Hollow Hills Board of Trustees has joined the national ALA campaign #EbooksForAll and is supporting a national embargo of Macmillan.
  • We hope that Macmillan will change their mind.

What does this mean for you?
When you look for a Macmillan title in OverDrive or Libby, you will not find it.

When you search the OPAC for a new hard cover or audiobook, you might find that title from another library. However, the hold list will be long and most libraries will be restricting the title for their patrons only. In order to have an immediate financial impact on Macmillan, your Board of Trustees and many others in the county have decided we are not purchasing any title in any format.

Service Issues

Currently, we are experiencing two issues with the online catalog:
1. A simple search will not limit items to HHHCL. Other kinds of searches (like Title and Author) will still limit items to this library.
2. Programs are missing the registration box. Registration will still be available in the calendar and list views, but not on the program’s webpage.
Please call us if you would like assistance in searching for an item or registering for a program.
We will provide an update when the service has been fully restored. We apologize for any inconvenience.
