The Two Harbor Public Library Board is still taking donations to purchase engraved brick pavers for the patio in front of the library addition. An engraved paver is a way to remember a loved one or to honor a mom, dad, or graduate. The library is taking orders ($100 donation each) for pavers that will be installed at the end of the summer. Call the library at 834-3148 or stop in and ask at the desk for more information.
New loan periods
If you have been into the library lately, you have probably heard about the policy and loan period changes. They were approved by the Board of Trustees and went into effect this week.
Here’s a quick overview:
For minors with library cards, the parent responsible for the card must have their own card in good standing at time of issuing a new card to the minor, or renewing the minor’s existing card.
The library is keeping the same weekday hours for the summer but is closed on Saturday through Labor Day weekend.
If you have any questions, stop in or call at 834-3148.
