About the Branch

As the largest eastern branch of the Mercer County Library System, the Hickory Corner Branch is a hub of activity for our community. The branch offers a comfortable space to read, study and connect.

Our youth services librarians offer engaging Baby and Story Times for children 3 months to 5 years, and so much more. S.T.E.A.M. programs for children of all ages, Chess Club, Craft Crew, and the ever-popular Slime Time are just a few of their many programs each month. 

We offer adult programs on a variety of subjects, including health, history, games, crafts, cooking, current events, and discussion of books and film. Our librarians are glad to make an appointment to give you one-on-one technology instruction. Check out our branch calendar for current program listings.

The branch’s several community rooms are in near-constant use, offering meeting space for a wide variety of nonprofit groups. We also have a Quiet Study room available for everyone.

Be sure to enjoy Hickory Corner’s monthly displays. Exhibitors have ranged in age from 6 to 90 and represent the diverse interests of our community. Collections and displays ranging from rubber ducks to telegraph insulators to photography and original artwork are sure to inspire.
