About the Branch
Welcome to the Hopewell Branch of the Mercer County Library System!
My name is Andrea Merrick, Branch Manager at the Hopewell Branch Library. Let me introduce you to the Branch staff – Bob, Janine, Kathy, Kelly, Pete, Robin, Shannon and Susan are all ready to assist you at the Circulation Desk. At the Reference Desk, you will be helped by Anna, Dana, Jodi and Tom, or our Youth Services Librarians, Briana, Connie and Katie.
I have worked at the Hopewell Branch since 1990 and it was ‘my library’ long before that. I fondly remember coming with my mom and checking out stacks of books that I started to read in the car on the way home! I have seen many changes over the years – the branch expanded in 1996, new audio/visual formats and technologies, databases, our website, and now an app. The one constant is the staff’s commitment to serving our patrons.
I usually would post some quick facts and statistics here about the branch and our services – with the pandemic and the changes we are still going through, I’d like to instead encourage you to check this website often to get the most up-to-date changes in hours, services, virtual resources, and programming (virtual and outdoor). Everything you love about the website is also available to you through our new app!
Don’t forget that, if the Hopewell Branch doesn’t own an item you want, you can request it from another branch. If the Library System doesn’t own an item, it may be possible to get through the Interlibrary Loan service.
We are always happy to hear your suggestions – please feel free to talk to me or fill out a comment form. If you would like us to consider purchasing a title, you may either tell us directly or use the Library System’s “Suggest for Purchase” form.
Hope to see you soon and often!
