The five branches are located in the towns of Stockbridge, Hampton, Locust Grove, and McDonough.

HCLS is a member of PINES, a program of the Georgia Public Library Service that covers 53 library systems in 143 counties of Georgia.[2] Any resident in a PINES supported library system has access to over 10.6 million books in the system's circulation.[3] The library is also serviced by GALILEO, a program of the University System of Georgia which stands for "GeorgiA LIbrary LEarning Online". This program offers residents in supported libraries access to over 100 databases indexing thousands of periodicals and scholarly journals. It also boasts over 10,000 journal titles in full text.[4]

The library also has an agreement with Gordon State College to combine resources to better serve the students at the school. The McDonough branch additionally allows access to classroom space, computers, and other resource assistance on an as needed basis for the students.[5][6]
