Library Notes for April 5, 2017


What do I do?

What do I do?

This library book is 42

Years overdue.

I admit that it’s mine

But I can’t pay the fine-

Should I turn it in

Or hide it again?

What do I do?

What do I do? By Shel Silverstein

If this is your problem we have the solution for you! Amnesty Week at the Library!

The Library is offering a week-long fine forgiveness event for people with overdue items. The amnesty period begins April 9 and runs through April 15, for National Library Week. The Library is encouraging its patrons to return all late materials during this period and have their fines waived regardless of how long the materials have been overdue. Fees for materials not returned will not be waived.

“Pam’s Pick” this week is: “The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane” by Lisa See, this story explores the lives of a Chinese mother and her daughter, who have been adopted by an American couple.

Don’t forget the New Game at the library: Ms. Cheryl has put together a “Kentuckyland” game. It is played a lot like Candyland but uses a Kentucky theme. The game is for everyone and can be played every day until someone wins. The prize? A book folded to look like the state of Kentucky. (you have to see it to believe it)
