Library will be closed November 11 for Veterans Day

 

By JUDITH CUTRIGHT

The Clay County Public Library will be closed on Wednesday, November 11 for Veterans Day.  Please take a moment on this day to remember those who have served our country.

 

Beginning January 4, 2010, we will require you to have your library card with you in order to check out a book.  If you have lost your card, please let us know before then, and we will issue a new one.  We understand that this may take a little time to adjust, and we will do our best to make this transition smoothly.

 

There have been several memorials made to the library recently.  A memorial gift is a lasting way to remember a loved one, and can be made in any amount. Recent memorials include:

 

In memory of Forrest Langford, given by Billie M. Collins and Children, and Dick and Ann Roberts and family.

In memory of Aaron Pennington, given by Billie M. Collins and Children, and Dick and Ann Roberts and family.
