Return Your Books!

...Read More

July 1st is when items checked out before quarantine and during curbside were due! We have also placed a cart inside the front doors that you can place your books into during our open hours in case you do not see our signs directing you to the back! Again, there are no late fines or fees on any of these items. We ask that you do not bring your items any further into the library as these items need to be quarantined for the safety of our patrons and our staff! After the conclusion of the second part of the study conducted on library specific materials, it has been determined that FOUR days of quarantine is recommended for all returned items. This means your returned items will remain on your card for four days before we check them back into the library. You are also welcome to set items you check out aside for this length of time prior to handling them at home. Thank you! 

No Fines!

...Read More

Just a reminder that there are no fines on items that were checked out prior to quarantine in March. These items were not able to be returned to us due to our having to close our bookdrops and not through any fault of your own! Please turn in your items as soon as possible. Late fees due to quarantine are also not being assessed at this time! If you have any questions about the items you have in your possession, please call!

Little Free Libraries!

...Read More

LIttle Free Libraries are all over Duncan! Take a book and leave a book. When you finish a book, leave it in one of these little libraries for someone else to enjoy! If you know of one we don't have listed, let us know!

Please remember that the books in these little libraries are protected only when they are inside and the doors are shut. Sadly, we've discovered a few ruined books that were left out in the wind and the rain.
