Participants of our 2024 Summer Reading Program. We need YOUR feedback!

Outreach Services

Outreach Mission

Hall County Library offers outreach services to anyone and everyone in our community! Our goal is to reach members in the community who may have barriers to accessing the library. We are dedicated to supporting literacy by providing access to the library’s resources, services and staff!

We also hope to increase awareness by being involved in as many community events as possible. Visit our Outreach calendar to see if we’ll be at a community event near you. We hope you stop by and say hi!

Reading Roadshow
Taking the library to you! Our Reading Roadshow is a collection of books for all ages to check out. The visit is about an hour long and happens monthly. We set up a table with the books and check them in and out at each visit, as well as answer any reference questions or assist with digital resources.

Genealogy Tips and Tricks Presentation
Many researchers just starting out in genealogy don’t know where to begin.  While those who have been doing genealogy research for years will often run into brick walls along the way.  During this program we will talk about some basic tools which will aid in the growing a strong family tree. Plus, we will talk about ways of getting a different perspective or records you have not thought about using before.

Digital Resource Presentation and Demonstration
An overview on all of our eResources including Hoopla and Tutor.com, as well as a demonstration on how to access and use them.   

Book Club/ Book Kits
A monthly book discussion led by a librarian or self-guided with the book club kits. There is a rotation of books to choose from that will be provided for your residents. This is available for Senior communities but a youth book club can be started upon request. 

Senior and Adult Accessibility Services
We deliver services to assisted and independent living facilities as well as senior centers. We bring our Reading Roadshow with a collection of books in large print. We can also take personal requests. There are also programs tailored specifically to seniors. 

We also offer the Books-by-Mail services. If you would like a presentation on the service, fill out the outreach request form. If you would like to apply for the service, click on the link for more information and to apply.

There are specialized programs that we can do for your group. Sometimes we visit schools for their STEAM Days with a short presentation about robots followed by some time to explore the robots. We have also taken our big games to various groups in the community.  If there is something you would like at your event or meeting, please reach out and we can discuss any ideas. Also, please let us know if there is a part of the community you think we aren't reaching!
