Library offers class tonight on using online resources

The Huntington City-Township Public Library has added an online branch, available around the clock to HCTPL cardholders.

A demonstration of how to use the online resources will be offered on Monday, Oct. 22, at 6 p.m. in the meeting room of the library. No registration or computer equipment is required; however, those attending are encouraged to bring a tablet, laptop or other device capable of accessing the Internet.

The library's website - - offers a variety of online databases in addition to electronic books and audiobooks for adults and children.
Resources include the Chilton's Auto Repair database, Learning Express Library test preparation site, a pricing guide for antiques and collectibles, a language learning site, legal forms, medical information and genealogical resources.

"We also have great online resources for small business owners, medical professionals, travelers, genealogy and history buffs, and especially for students at every level, from kindergarten to postgraduate work," says library Director Kathy Holst.

Most of the digital services require users to log in with a library card number and a six-digit personal identification number (PIN). Anyone who lives in or owns property in Huntington Township or the town of Markle is eligible to obtain a library card at no charge.
