From Newport Public Library
1: Do you use Library Take Out?
Life is better with books, movies, and music from your library! Place holds online or over the phone, and we’ll notify you when they’re available, with an automated call or email. Pick up items as soon as you are able to, preferably on Tuesdays or Thursdays between 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Items will be held for a week and a half from when they arrive at the library. If you haven’t picked them up by the end date, they will be released for the next person in line. If you don’t receive an expected notification, please let us know, and we’ll check the contact information on your account!
2: Library Bookmark Design Challenge
Pick up the template at the library, draw your bookmark design in the rectangle, and return it to the library during take out hours. The completed designs will be made into library bookmarks! Please return your design by February 16. Collect the finished bookmarks to win a prize! Bookmarks can be collected by checking books out using library take out services on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10 a.m.–5:30 p.m.
