Oct. 20, 2020 — It's National Friends of Libraries week! Join us in thanking the Friends of the Hampton Public Library, a support organization whose members offer their time, skills, and financial support. They advocate for the library; support children's programs, equipment, and furniture; sponsor the library's rental collection; and operate the Main Library's gift shop and biannual book sales. 

As always, library customers can go online to browse items and request books or other materials. From the library home page, click on Library Catalogs on the left side. You can search the collection for a title or author, or you can follow links for popular materials in different genres and for different ages. (You also can call the library and request books.)

The library branches are open 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday and 1-5 p.m. on Saturdays, with the following policies:  

  • All patrons over 10 years old MUST wear a mask (unless there is a medical reason) in order to come into the library.  
  • Patrons will be able to come in and use the library and services for one hour per day.  
  • Patrons who wish to use the Special Collections Room will have to call to make an appointment.  

The library will continue its curbside service Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. only.  Patrons will need to call the library when they’re notified of their holds if they wish to schedule curbside service.

In addition to books, the library has a large collection of DVDs, audio books and music CDs.

  • Main Library, 4207 Victoria Blvd., 757-727-1154
