New Policy Starting in September
Starting in September, we will be requiring you to present your library card or your license in order to check out materials from the library. This is to help protect your private information, to prevent the misuse of cards, to ensure equal service for all, and to comply with network regulations.
We know that it can be a hassle to bring your library card or license. To make this a little easier, over the past month, we've been letting people who forget their cards know about this upcoming change, and we're letting you know via Facebook, our newsletter, and our website with lots of time to spare.
We're also no longer charging for replacement cards, so if you've lost or broken your card, or if you want both a wallet card and a keychain card, all you need to do is ask and you can have a free replacement card.
We also recognize that it's nice to have a library where the staff know you. This change does mean that we'll need to see your library card or license to check materials out to you, but you will still have the same friendly staff greet and assist you.
We can have the best of both worlds - library card policies to protect you and your library, and a friendly, welcoming, community-minded library.
If you have questions or concerns about this change, please leave them in a comment on our Facebook page or talk to Alex by phone (508-376-8282), by email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or by dropping in during library hours.
This week's Wellness Wednesday class, starting at 6:30, is gentle yoga and will be held inside. This class is appropriate for all levels, so bring your friends!
iRest® Yoga Nidra taps into the wisdom of nondual yoga through periods of silent and guided meditation and direct instruction to impart deep relaxation while revealing the mystery of being and pure awareness. Here, you find yourself and the world at peace. Bring yourself, just as you are.
At 6:00 - 30 minutes before yoga - we're having our weekly Family Movie Night in the Roche Bros. Community Room.
