HAYDEN - Reaching into the past to discover long-lost relatives can be difficult without the proper resources.
That's why genealogist Kim Morgan is presenting “Finding Your Ancestors,” a series of free genealogical research workshops held once a month at the Hayden Public Library.
About 20 people attended Saturday's workshop, “Finding Your Ancestors: Scoundrels, Misfits and Other Colorful Ancestors.” Attendees discussed genealogy research methods as well as some of the interesting links they have found within their family trees. Morgan provided the group with useful tools, such as advanced-search Internet tips and ideas to expand research.
“I think people have a need to know their roots,” said Connie Godak of Hayden. “Whether for good or ill, we need to know what we're made of, and where we came from.” Read more. Devin Heilman, Cda Press

Seems there's more to the story about that “aggressive loiterer” being kicked off Hayden Public Library property Monday afternoon. (See PM Scanner Traffic Monday, 4:28 item.) The Kootenai County Democrats Facebook site reports: “Sky Adams was gathering signatures today in front of the Hayden public library for Americans Elect. Adams says that, after standing outside for four hours and collecting 67 signatures, someone complained. The Sheriff showed up and issued a “no-trespass” order against him.
A Hayden Library patron with either a voracious appetite for reading or an insatiable need for information now faces some hefty overdue book fines. A grand theft charge might also await in the next chapter. Library director John Hartung reported Wednesday that a patron had checked out 124 books over a three-day period in May, the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Department says. The individual, whose identity was not released by the sheriff’s department, failed to return the books when they were due in mid-June. According to the report, the patron did not respond to letters sent by the library/Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
Question: I'm a little at a loss re: why the Hayden Library allowed one person to check out 124 books over 3 days. How about you? Is the library partly to blame for this situation?
