Library Policies

The purpose of the Hewitt Public Library policies is to clearly outline the mission, vision, values, and operations of the library services available to the City of Hewitt and McLennan County. These policies have been endorsed by the Library Advisory Board as proxies of the City Council and may be reviewed periodically to maintain timeliness and efficiency.
