…and so must our library policies.
It’s been a while since we’ve updated our library policies and now, thanks to the interwebs, we can link them here.  Check out our Circulation Policy.

Also, starting September 1st – Patron Privacy Update
Patrons picking up holds for other patrons will be required to sign a release form that we will keep on file at the library.  Click here for that form.

Read for an Amazon Kindle!

Take your reading a step further and write down the title of each book you read for each challenge.
Bring your final list to the Library between December 1, 2016 and December 17, 2016.
For every 5 books you read and write down, you will get an entry into our end of the year drawing on December 20, 2016 for an Amazon Kindle.

We have TWO Kindles to give away – one for the Adult readers and one for Kids/Teens.
There might be some other prizes too, you never know.
