Little Libraries on the Big Lake


Spring Cleaning

It feels good to pay library fines. Usually they don't add up to that much and unlike other unpaid bills, the library doesn't add interest. Another nice thing about paying fines is that the money collected goes right back into the library for materials - for you. It's a win-win situation. You will feel better and you will be helping your library. Just think, no more hiding behind the cabbages in the grocery store when you see library staff headed your way.
