The library now has a limited number of popular items in a ‘Lucky Day’ collection. These are titles with long waiting lists, usually new movies or best-selling books. Films checkout for three days, with a $1.00 per day fine. Books circulate for seven days, with a $.50 per day fine. Lucky Day items cannot be renewed or reserved. The idea is to have a quick turnaround time so that more people have an opportunity to enjoy them without waiting on a long list. Items will move to the regular collection as demand slows down. Check the shelf for Lucky Day items next time you stop in.
The library has bird watching kits available for check out. Included in the kit are a backpack, binoculars, field guides, a checklist of common birds, and a journal for kids to make notes about what they saw. The backpacks are located in the children’s library. Bird watching is a great hobby for kids (or anyone) to take up. It costs nothing, can last a lifetime, and you don’t have to go any farther than your own backyard!
