In celebration of National Library Week, April 8th-14th, the library will have an “Amnesty Week” to encourage patrons to return their overdue library items. To participate, we are asking that patrons return their overdue items, along with a canned or non- perishable food item for each overdue item. Have an existing fine on your account? Patrons that owe existing fines for previously returned items may have a chance to reduce their debt owed by 50% during the week, by bringing in a food item to donate for each existing fine. Food donations are welcome even if no fines are owed. All food items collected will be donated to the local food pantry.
Tuesday, April 10th, will be “Tea Tuesday”. We will offer tea and refreshments for those who stop by between 1:00 and 4:00 that afternoon.
Patrons may also stop by throughout the week, to sign up for a prize drawing to win a gift basket. The gift basket includes: a hardcover book on the current “New York Times Best Sellers List” (“Lone Wolf” by Jodi Picoult), a Central City Public Library keepsake mug, some delicious snack food, and a bookmark!
