Question and Answer Library Column:

Question:   How do I sign out a book, puzzle, or audio book?

Answer:   All items have a circulation card in the back of them where you can write your last name and / or unit number with the date you took it out. There are two plastic canvas boxes on the shelf by the large print books where you put the card under the AUTHOR'S LAST NAME.   Example:   Black Beauty by Anna Sewell, under S for Sewell.   Puzzle cards may be put in the box on the shelf where the puzzles are located in our cabinet.
If you borrow audio books over the summer and go on a trip up north, please mail them back to our King's Gate Club Office. Thanks a bunch.       Your Bookie, Barb Tompkins
