The library subscribes to nine newspapers and over 70 magazines. This is a great money saver for our patrons. These periodicals are kept in displays back in the quiet area near the fireplace, where there are tables, couches and lamps for your comfort.
Back issues of newspapers are kept in the shelves underneath the displays for approximately two weeks. The Democrat , our local weekly, is kept all year until it is transferred to microfilm. Many people come in regularly to read the newspapers. Some make copies of things like crossword puzzles or articles.
Current issues of magazines are generally kept in plastic sleeves and are not available for check out until the next issue arrives. This makes them available for more people. Back issues of magazines are kept for one to five years.
We are always glad to help you make copies of items at the circulation desk area. It only costs 10 cents per page. In order to keep the papers intact for everyone who may need them, please do not remove any pages or sections from the library.
