East Central Library is open for business

Some credit is given to a group of parents and Sheridan kids that showed up at a city council meeting. The neighborhood is very happy about this, and everyone is encouraged to use it - a lot - this next year. The library is planning various outreach events to gain more members and perhaps - perhaps - have an amnesty period for outstanding fines.
It's possible that the SPBNA can raise some of the money to cover the cost of the fines. The total number of not-returned books and outstanding fines is not yet known.
Kids may not be able to get a library card because their parents' library card is blocked. A library card is blocked once there are $10 in outstanding fines.
Jerry Numbers reminded everyone that books can be reserved online and then picked up at the library of your choice. The  tone around the table is very much “use it or lose it.”
There is a proposed computer lab for East Central Community Center - supposedly there is still plenty of room for that, even if the library stays open and stays where it's at.
The library needs volunteers to do some of the tasks that don't have to be done by librarians - contact the library to find register.

About this blog

Welcome to the South Perry neighborhood blog. My name is Pia Hallenberg and I’ve worked as a journalist in Spokane since the fall of 1998; for the last four years I’ve lived on South Perry Street.

I love the neighborhood so when time came to pick an area for The Spokesman-Review’s first neighborhood blog, the choice was simple: South Perry is where it’s at.
