April Is Amnesty Month
This is the time to look though your book cases, videos and DVDs and under the bed for those stray items belonging to your library. We will take them back at no charge for late, very late, and very very late. Funding for books, movies and audiobooks is limited - it is difficult to replace these items when they are not returned.
