Welcome to Hartford Public Library's public weblog, a new space where a small but growing number of librarians, programmers and other staff are posting regular dispatches from their corner of the HPL community.

With over 500,000 items, and thousands of events, services and exhibitions spread across the library system each year, staff are faced with the near impossible task of shedding light on the many hidden treasures and resources we offer here at Hartford Public Library.  In a sense, the library is like an enormous iceberg: the section peaking above the water represents only a small fraction of its overall size. These blogs are designed to better document and promote this massive treasure of information.

Please engage directly with our bloggers in the comment stream. To ensure a civil and focused discussion, comments will be held for a brief period before being published.
