Ways to Celebrate National Library Week

“Libraries serve their communities in innovative and inspiring ways,” says John Huddy, Director of Handley Regional Library System.  “Throughout the pandemic caused by COVID-19, we have been on the public front lines and behind the scenes to meet the needs of our community.  From access to at-home learning tools, mobile Wifi devices, streaming movies, resources to help with careers and job search, and our popular virtual programs – we are making sure our service area of over 130,000 has access to critical public library services.”

Handley Regional Library System is open to the public with limited hours and select services for the safety of the community with a Digital Library available 24/7.  See the latest at
