Programs

HCCPL offers a variety of programming for all ages. Visit our calendar to see our current schedule.

Book-A-Bike

You can rent a bike from the library! In partnership with Parks and Recreation, we’re offering the Book-A-Bike program. Adult, youth, and training wheel bikes are available. Helmets are also available upon request.

When?

Bikes are available during regular library operating hours. They must be returned by 1 hour before close on the day you check the bike out.

Where?

Check the bike out at the library front desk. Then you can ride it all over Hopkinsville! The Hopkinsville Greenway is conveniently located right by the library and is an excellent place to ride.

You can also check out bikes at Planters Bank-Jennie Stuart Health Sportsplex Hopkinsville and the Hopkinsville Visitor’s Center. Hours vary at each location.

Cost?

With an adult library card, each bike costs $1.00. You can rent 2 bikes. Without a library card, each bike costs $5.00.

Seed Library

Seed libraries are a way to have fun, while building a sense of community with fellow gardeners and providing support to new comers to the world of gardening. It also preserves rare or heirloom seeds and encourages gardeners to save quality seeds that are best for our local growing area. The way the library works is very simple: gardeners “borrow” seeds from the library at planting time. At the end of the growing season, they save seeds from the plants and return a portion of the seeds to the library. You do not need a library card to check out seeds.

The HCCPL Seed Library is brought to you by the Hopkinsville-Christian County Public Library in partnership with the Christian County Master Gardeners Association.

To check out seeds, come to the library front desk to ask what we have available.
