It sounds like that’s what they were doing, checking out books.

I moseyed down there after they forgave overdue penalties to see if there was anything to borrow, looked at the books/DVDs/video games couldn’t find anything. lots of the older books I had checked out in the past are now gone it appears


Mostly use the library for the newspaper archives and one of the streaming services to watch 3rd Rock from the Sun

I know people working at the library and the stuff that place gets rid of is criminal, considering it's taxpayer funded. Tons of books I like to reread and DVDs I like to watch (no we don't have a streaming service), classic children's books, classics for adults, and most of the magazine collection is gone. And no, I don't like reading magazines online. I want something I can take into the garden and look at nice pictures (gardening and home magazine for example).

“..The closure, implemented at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, was expected to be for at least 24 hours. After the infestation was discovered June 28 in the 24-hour book return area, the room was cordoned off and pest-control and professional cleaning services sanitized the affected area.

The area remained cordoned off during the weekend and “we kept the 24-hour book return closed,” said Ridgway.

When the library reopened Tuesday, however, staff found the problem had not been resolved…”: https://www.timescol...rn-area-9168656
