Our Digital Library was intentionally designed to provide access to library services beyond our physical locations, although they can be enjoyed onsite when using our internet stations and Wifi,” says John Huddy, Director of Handley Regional Library System.  “It’s extremely important, especially during the pandemic, for the library system to meet the needs of our community and we’re excited to expand what’s available on our website.  We have over 30 different high-quality digital databases - available anytime of the day whenever you need it – for patrons of all ages for a variety of learning and entertainment options.  If you have never relied on our Digital Library, now is certainly the time to check it out.”
