Library announces Thanksgiving closings, Amnesty Week
by Staff Reports
The Watauga County Public Library will be closed on Thursday, Nov. 28, Friday, Nov. 29 and Saturday, Nov. 30, for Thanksgiving Holiday. The library will reopen on Monday, Dec. 2.
In addition, the library will open at 1 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 13, due to a staff development workshop in the morning.
From Monday, Dec. 9 through Saturday, Dec. 14, area residents who have overdue books or still have fines for books returned late will have a chance to "redeem themselves" at the Watauga County Public Library.
Bring in cans of staple food items, and a credit of $1 per can will be applied towards fees levied for late returns. All canned foods will be given to the Watauga County Hunger Coalition for local distribution to those in need. Canned food redemption may be applied to late fees only -- not towards damaged or lost items.
The main library is located at 140 Queen Street in downtown Boone. The Western Watauga branch library is located at 1085 Old U.S. 421 in Sugar Grove. For more information, call (828) 264-8784.
