With the help of the Friends of the Library, we are going to make this Book Fest very festive! Book Fest was designed to offer our patrons an annual opportunity to purchase used or withdrawn books to build their own libraries at home. It is also our way of saying “Thank You” for all of the support over the years. We would like to extend an early invitation to our local authors, community partners, social clubs, youth clubs, crafters, etc. to join us on Saturday, October 7th from 8 am to 2 pm to set up a tent or claim a spot with a table on the library grounds to promote and / or sell your products or services or to do some fundraising and there is NO vendor fee!!
August is “Fine Free” Month and More at ALL the Library’s Locations!
ALL items returned in good condition during August will have ALL fines waived on them.
On outstanding fines and fees (fines on items that were returned before August or lost item charges on items not returned), we have a special MATCHING DEAL for August ONLY:
Throughout the entire month of August, whatever amount you pay in fines or lost item charges, the library will MATCH with a waive:
Examples: You pay 10 cents, we waive 10 cents. You pay a dollar, we waive a dollar. You pay ten dollars, we waive ten dollars.
Please note that this applies for fines and lost or damaged item charges ONLY. It does not apply to copies or fax charges or to deposits on study guides. It also can’t be used to create an account with a credit balance.
You can take advantage of this special offer as many times as you wish throughout the month of August. It’s a great way to gradually clear your account and make a fresh start for the new school year.
For lost library cards, the usual fee for replacements is three dollars. During August you pay only one dollar for a replacement (a two-thirds off the regular price savings). If you are an adult who is still using a card you got while you were a child, your card will be replaced with an adult card for FREE. (This is a year round offer.)
We are introducing another great new program at the main library in the multipurpose room! On Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday we will have lots of fun with “Tumblebooks” at 4:30 pm. This is about a half hour event each day, and you can drop in on any of the days and enjoy the fun–we will feature different Tumblebooks content each day, including some books and games in Spanish or French. Tumblebooks look gorgeous projected on the multipurpose room wall, and the animation is outstanding. Best of all, you can also access the same content for FREE from your home computer if you log in through the library website. Enjoy Tumblebooks with your kids at the library and see how much fun you can have sharing them with your family at home. For more information, please call the main library at 363-1369.
