Fine Forgiveness Month

August is Fine Forgiveness Month. We will forgive the overdue fines on items that are overdue and billed. Here's how it works:
1. Bring your items into the library and speak to a library staff member at the desk. Do NOT put the items in the various drop boxes. You MUST hand them to a staff member.
2. We will check in the items and waive any remaining overdue fines associated with those items being returned.
3. Let the staff know if any of your contact information has changed.
4. Welcome back to the library!
Have you returned your overdue materials already, but still have a fine, be it small or quite significant? Bring in a new school supply item or items, give them to library staff at the front desk, and we will take an assigned amount off of your total fine. All school supplies received during the fine forgiveness month will be donated to the Back2 School Project in Brookings. It's a great way to help out the community and yourself!

SD Share-It

South Dakota Share-It is a new service provided by the SD State Library that lets you search SD library catalogs in one place and request items through interlibrary loan. Once there, you can sign in with your library barcode number and your last name, all lower case. You can find a link to the SD Share-It catalog to the left under our catalog link.
