Packing A Library

sealing a box of booksThe Library Bookstop is no more. Sunday May 7th was the last day of operation for our little Mall branch. (The staff gave 'hugs' and 'kisses' to the patrons. Chocolate of course.) Library staff and volunteers worked like crazy for four days, and by Thursday afternoon the whole collection was taken care of. The 7-day books and media materials have been shifted to La Farge, a good many worn-out and out of date materials were discarded. The whole rest of the collection will go into storage until the new Southside Library is ready and they are melded with the 60,000-odd new items which are being purchased for Southside.

Hold books which were requested for pickup at Bookstop will be sent instead to the La Farge Branch, 1730 Llano Street. 955-4862. And yes, beginning this Sunday and until Southside opens, La Farge will be open on Sundays from 1-5 PM.
