In order to borrow materials, you must present a valid library card. This may be a physical card or one scanned into a mobile device.
Children under the age of 18 may obtain their own card when accompanied by a parent, guardian or responsible adult with the required identification. The consenting adult assumes all legal responsibility for any charges the minor may incur.
Derry Township residents must present a current PA driver’s license or PA ID. An additional proof of address is needed such as a utility bill or a bank statement if the address on the photo ID is incorrect.
Residents from any Pennsylvania community participating in the Access PA program may borrow from the Hershey Public Library. Borrowers must show a PA license or ID card with a current name and address. If a borrower does not have an I.D. with a current address, the borrower must produce an official proof of address such as a utility bill or bank statement with name and current address. A borrower has the option of using their home library card to register as a member at HPL or purchasing a HPL card for $5. A photo ID confirming a current address is required to register out-of-town borrowers.
Lost cards may be replaced for a $5.00 fee.
A library is a cooperative effort and everyone benefits if all members participate fairly. We ask you to consider the following:
- Please treat your library card seriously.
- Don’t allow anyone else to borrow items on your card- you are financially responsible for them.
- Please return items on time and in good condition.
ALL BORROWING REQUIRES A LIBRARY CARD or A SCANNED BARCODE INTO A MOBILE DEVICE.
