Beginning January 1, late charges for library items will be $0.25 per item/per day. The only exception is eReaders. In addition, library users will have a three-day grace period to return or renew items. If the items are returned or renewed within the grace period, the late fee will be waived.
Why the changes? “We wanted to simplify the late charges and be more customer friendly,” states Library Operations Director Jason Kuhl. “Late charges serve the purpose of getting our materials back, not increasing revenue. Ninety-one percent of items are returned on time, and these changes will make it even easier for our customers to avoid having to pay late charges."
The Library’s new bookmobile is making its rounds with a new look and great updates users will appreciate. The new color and graphics on the outside are just the beginning. It is three feet longer so it has more room to carry the newest books, movies, music and magazines. It also has a higher ceiling, additional skylights and better lighting. And with lower steps into the bookmobile, it is even easier to come aboard. In addition to the added space, it has a new “green” feature – a battery pack that helps save fuel by using the generator less.

Our new picture book bins at the Library make browsing easy for your little one. The books are shelved low, with their covers facing out. Bring your child to the library and let him do the “shopping.” Children love choosing their own books! Even very young children show a preference for certain types of books.
