Library to waive fines in December

in

In honor of the Lincoln Parish Library’s 50th anniversary, and as a Christmas gift to patrons, library staff are forgiving all fines during the month of December. Those who have an old fine on record may come in and ask staff to remove it. If a resident has books at home that are overdue, they can bring them back, and no fine will be assessed. The only things staff cannot waive are charges for lost and/or damaged materials. While not mandatory, staff would appreciate a canned good donation, which will be given to Christian Community Action.

Forming a sex offender policy

Library Board of Control members have until Jan. 1 to put a policy in place pertaining to sex offenders.
During the September meeting, Library Director Vivian McCain told board members that the library is required to write a policy pertaining to sex offenders with the passage of a new law that prohibits those convicted of a sex offense against a victim under 13 from entering public libraries, with certain exceptions.
The library policy might simply restrict offenders from using the library at certain times or from certain sections of it, she said.
