The Sequoyah Regional Library System will offer fine forgiveness, one of many programs Cherokee County residents can take advantage of during National Library Week, April 9-15.
During this week only, past and present fines up to $15 per library card will be dismissed. Residents need to visit their local branch to participate; some fees may be excluded from the offer. Free replacement cards also will be available.
Libraries aren’t only a place of quiet study, but also creative and engaging community centers where people can collaborate using new technologies, learn how to use a 3D printer or even borrow a sewing machine.
Community members – elected officials to toddlers – depend upon libraries and the resources they offer. Resources include e-books and technology classes, materials for English-language learners, programs for job seekers as well as coloring or book club groups and story times.
