February is Love Your Library Month and Fine Free* February (see details below)

February is Love Your Library Month.  To show appreciation for our patrons, we are making February a fine-free month.  Return Berne Public Library items to the Berne Public Library with no late fees for the month of February.  This is a great time to look through your rooms for library items that you forgot to return.  Remember this applies to only Berne Public Library items and they must be returned to the Berne Public Library.  If you are not sure if you have items at your house, call the library (518-872-1246) and the staff can let you know.

Real People, Real Dollars

How much do you save by using the library.  There is a library calculator to help you figure it out.  Click on the following link:  Library Value Calculator

Would you agree to have a photo taken with the amount you have saved so we can put it on social media and the NYLA  (New York Library Association) website?

This advocacy campaign is to demonstrate that investing in NY libraries results in a big financial value for real people in our communities.
