 About Us

Hart County Library is a Georgia PINES Library. The Georgia Library Public Information Network for Electronic Services, or PINES, is Georgia's public library automation and lending network for 275 libraries. PINES is an initiative of the Georgia Public Library Service, a unit of the University System of Georgia. It is the public library automation and lending network for 281 libraries and affiliated service outlets in 53 library systems covering 143 counties (53 of the 63 library systems in Georgia).

PINES creates a statewide "borderless library" that eliminates geographic and socio-economic barriers and provides equal access to information for all Georgians. Georgians with a PINES library card have access to materials beyond what is available on their local shelves and enjoy the benefits of a shared collection of 9.6 million books and materials that can be delivered to their home library with no charge to the library user that contributes to a more educated Georgia through lifelong learning.
