In Guys Read, the guys will be discussing Cirque du Freak: A Living Nightmare, by Darren Shan. Ask for the book at the Circulation desk and come prepared to chat about the book or the series, do an activity, and hang out with other guys. Registration is required and spaces are still available for these programs.

Food for Fines

Food for Fines is coming! The library has added a second Food for Fines which usually happens during the summer. This year, we will be holding two, one from February 10-15 and one during the summer. If you bring in a non-perishable food item from February 10-15, we will waive up to $15.00 in late fees from your card. So, if you have been waiting to pay off those fees or have an item that is very overdue, bring in food to get the slate wiped clean.
