Library FinesLibrary Patrons,Did you know that there is an overdue fine for all late materials? Yes, it is twenty cents per day with a maximum of $1.00 per week. This fine is accumulated and added to your record when overdue materials are returned. Since we have an outside drop box many of you may have returned items there, and not in person, resulting in your not being made aware of your late fees. Today, September 22nd, as I was making a flyer to let you all know of our upcoming “Fine Forgiveness Week,” which is a week that fines can be forgiven in exchange for canned goods being brought to the library, an anonymous benefactor came in and paid all of your late fees. This person did not pay for lost book fees. Therefore, we will not be having that event. Instead we can all rejoice and be thankful that your fines are paid. In the future if you have fines it will be declared to you at your next check out. I do not anticipate your fines being paid anonymously in the future. So, please, be mindful of the date stamp in the back of your books. If you are not able to return your books on time, just give us a call and we can renew them for you. Sometimes, we may even give you a courtesy call letting you know you have and overdue, or about to be due, book. This is only a courtesy call and I encourage you not to rely upon it exclusively as we are only able to do this as time allows. Thank you for your patronage,TJ Gillson, Librarian
Have you ever thought you would like to write a book? What stopped you? Did you get discouraged mid-way? Did you have writers block? Did you sit at the computer with your head full of ideas but your screen blank? Perhaps all you needed was a little encouragement and someone to hold you accountable. November is, “Write a Book in a Month,” month. In honor of that we have purchased a number of books with the same theme and are offering to host a gathering every Thursday evening in November (except Thanksgiving) from 7 to 8 pm. We will kick-off our “club” by inviting you to meet our very own Jennifer Riley on Friday October 27th at 6 pm. Jennifer has recently published a book and will share her inspiration and the vehicle she used to have her book published. There will be light refreshments. Details about the weekly gathering will be shared at that time. Hope to see you there.
