Point of need access is the concept driving the library schedule at the Hernandez Memorial Library.  The goal is to provide classes with access to the library at their point of need.  Over the course of a nine week grading period, each class visits the library about six times.

Open Checkout is from Monday – Friday, 7:30 AM – 7:50 AM.


No fines are charged for overdue books.  However, books that have been lost or destroyed must be paid for.  Prices vary depending on the item.  Most library books fall within a range from $8 to $30.
