Press Release, Hoag Library

ALBION – Hoag Library is still working diligently to serve its community during this COVID-19 closure.

With the growing number of community members needing reliable internet, Hoag Library recently installed a signal booster to increase WiFi access. Residents can use the WiFi from the library parking lot, green space, and garden area (west side of the building) with plenty of room to maintain social distancing.  A library card or password is not required – simply join the network named “Hoag- Guest.”

Hoag Library also encourages patrons to take advantage of the free digital services included with a library card, such as ebooks, audiobooks, emagazines, research databases, and more!

Explore your family history with AncestryNY, NYS Historic Newspapers, and HeritageQuest; answer home improvement or gardening questions with the GaleOnefille database; keep the kids busy with TumbleBooksLibrary and Kids InfoBits; and find reading recommendations with NovelListPlus. All these resources, and more, can be found at www.nioga.org.

Those wishing to explore all of Hoag Library’s digital services, but do not have a library card, can email hoag_library@yahoo.com. Reference questions and all other inquiries can also be sent to this email.

Hoag Library continues to share relevant information on the website www.hoaglibrary.org and Facebook, including video storytimes with Children’s Librarian Teresa Gaylard. Librarians can be contacted to provide limited remote services using the email above.
