Fine Amnesty in January! As a holiday gift to our patrons, the library will be offering a fine amnesty from Jan. 2 until Jan. 31 for people who return their overdue materials in January. Also, if you have outstanding fines at the library you may have those forgiven if you come into the library to make the request in person. This amnesty will cover fines only. It will not include replacement costs, processing fees or fines from other libraries. Beginning on Feb. 1, daily fines will increase from 10 cents per day to 20 cents per day for regular materials.
Vandalism. Due to continued vandalism, the Lyons bookdrop is no longer in use. We are sorry for the inconvenience to our patrons.
Copying at the library. In January, the library will be leasing a new printer. This will allow us to offer color copies at both locations. The cost of color copies will be 35 cents each at the Main and Lyons branches of the library. To cover increasing costs for printing, black and white copies will cost 15 cents per page beginning Jan. 2.
Bald Eagle Watch. Join Holly Youngquist, Tamie Bird and Brad Wiles at Clinton Community College between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. to celebrate the Bald Eagle Watch on Saturday, Jan. 4. We’ll have a take-away activity for kids and share information about upcoming programs at the library with guests who stop by our table.
Afternoon Adventures. Explore your world on Wednesdays from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. Open to children in grades first through fifth. Just imagine the possibilities with Imagination Station at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 8 at the library. Create new worlds with Play Doh, Legos, crafts and games.
Story time. The theme for next week is Snuggle up in your PJs. Children can snuggle up, bring a blanket and wear their pjs. Preschool story time will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 8, at 10 a.m. Toddler Time will take place on Thursday, Jan 9, at 10 a.m. If you have questions, contact children’s staff at 243-5436.
