• Welcome to the HSHS Library 


    The library is open at a limited capacity. We encourage students to request books in advance either directly in the online catalog or via email. If you have any questions regarding library materials or research databases, please email library@hinsdale86.org

    At this time, late fees are not being collected. If you have an overdue book you may return it anytime and all fines will be waived. Library books can be returned in multiple ways:

    • At the greeter's desk at the circle drive entrance
    • Using the book drop slot in the main hallway between the circle drive entrance and the library entrance
    • At the circulation desk in the library


    All HSHS students and staff can use AXIS 360 on their mobile device or Chromebook to read ebooks and/or listen to audiobooks. Directions for setting up your account can be found here: AXIS 360 Setup. The link to AXIS 360 books is on the left menu. Email library@hinsdale86.org if you have questions.
