As the library begins slowly re-opening, we are reaching out to our patrons seeking overdue materials. We are excited to be able to extend a grace period to our patrons. If you return overdue items (Yes! That includes that library book you took out in 2019) before March 15, 2021 there will be no late fees!
Thank you for your ongoing support of the Olive G. Pettis Memorial Library – we appreciate your patronage!
