A few changes to come in January include a new Lucky Day collection that will replace the Rental book collection. This FREE browsing collection will continue to have new, best-selling fiction and movies that can only be checked out by visiting the library! They cannot be put on reserve and they are never sent to another library in the consortium and as of January 2015, they will have NO rental fee. The check-out period will still be 7 days, without renewals. We also have added seasonal paperbacks to the vacation reads and will put that out as a browsing collection called “Winter Reads.”
