Accelerated Reader

The library collection includes a number of accelerated reader titles. Use the youth catalog to access information on Accelerated Reader materials - as well as information on Lexile Levels.

Book Clubs

The library has three book clubs - Due to COVID-19, meetings are held via zoom.


We have seventeen PCs available for use at the Hattiesburg Library and three at the Petal Library.

There is also a three computer homework lab with pre-selected educational sites at the Hattiesburg Library.  This lab provides limited free printing of homework assignments.

Holds (Requests)

Placing an online hold for items is the best way to get the books you want; either by coming into the library or using our curbside pickup service. Holds let you know that we have the material ready for you to pick up.  This instruction sheet lets you know more about the process.
