2. Bring back long overdue or lost library books. Un-returned items cost the library–and therefore the community–money. For the next two weeks, we will waive late fees on long overdue or lost items. Return your items in the drop box or at the circulation desk before school starts. No questions asked. No judgments made. Only appreciation for helping our materials get back home where they belong.

3. Provide us with a valid email address. This quick communication between the library and our patrons helps cut down on late fees for patrons, as you will receive a reminder that items are coming due. It also alerts you of the arrival of items you have placed on hold. In addition, it significantly decreases staff time that is typically spent calling patrons. This makes us more efficient and effective, and allows us extra time for other necessary duties.

4. Follow us on Facebook or follow our blog ( This will help you stay connected to Meinders Library and provide you with up-to-date information on programs, new books, activities and events, and potential closings.
