It’s That Time of the Year
If you have received a fine sometime in 2017, please be prepared to pay it before Dec. 29. The library’s policy does not allow any new checkouts until all fines have been paid. It’s very important for the library to collect all fines in the year it is due. If you have a large fine and you are unable to pay in one payment, you can make a payment plan that suits your budget.
“Nourish Your Skin” Program
Jackie Franks, Purdue Extension educator, presented a program on Monday, Nov. 27, all about nourishing your skin. Seven people attended the program. Franks discussed the anatomy of skin, ways to protect one’s skin from damage and ways to identify skin cancer risk factors. During the event, Margi Brooks won a copy of “Eat Beautiful: Food and Recipes to Nourish Your Skin from the Inside Out” by Wendy Rowe and Mary Duncan won a copy of “Love the Skin You’re In” by Linda Irwin-Hurley. The books are also available to check out at the library. The next nutrition program will be in February of 2018. More information will be released at a later date via newspapers.
