Library News : The Porch Pickup Project
Posted by rsanders on 2020/5/15 19:28:26 (51 reads)

UPDATE: Today we had a day of experimentation and started our "Porch Pickup" service... and things went pretty well. We'll have staff on hand for this service on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. You can put books on hold through the PINES app, or call us at (706) 376-4655 to request a book (or books) or other materials. The library building is still closed, but you tell us when you can pick the books up and we'll check them out to you and have them waiting in the library vestibule for you to stop by.

We're hoping to expand to having the building open -- in a limited way -- beginning a week from Monday, but we'll be announcing more details about that (and more details about Porch Pickup) next week.

Have a great weekend, and stay safe!

Library News : UPDATE: Overdue notices/telephone calls
Posted by rsanders on 2020/5/11 14:00:00 (56 reads)

NOTE: Several of our patrons have let us know that they've received an automated phone call about overdue books. The phone calls are generated through the PINES office in Atlanta and are the result of a computer data error that we made. Our "amnesty" policy for fines on overdue books is still in force -- we are not charging overdue fines for books or materials that were checked out two weeks or less prior to our shutting down. We sincerely apologize for any confusion.

REMINDER: Please disregard any overdue notice letters or e-mails. Nothing is due until we re-open, and we're not charging late fees for the period we are/have been shut down.

UPDATE: Due to the current circumstances, we've had to cancel the regularly-scheduled April meeting for the Hart County Library Board of Trustees. We'll hope to meet -- in one format or another -- in May. If you have any questions of comments for the Library Board, you can leave a message on the Facebook page ("Hart County Public Library"), or e-mail us at info@hartcountylibrary.com.

Library News : AARP annual Tax-Aide program - ON HOLD
Posted by rsanders on 2020/3/30 19:03:25 (295 reads)

People have asked us about the AARP annual Tax-Aide program. The information that we have does not name a date for the Tax-Aide program to start back up again, but the AARP volunteers have told us that they will make a very public announcement -- in the local newspapers, radio stations, etc. -- when they know when they'll be resuming their services.
