Scratches on DVDs cause skips, stoppages, or make it difficult to play the DVD. It had become almost impossible to enjoy our DVDs due to scratches received when the DVD was checked out. In an effort to eliminate this problem for our patrons, we have cleaned ALL our DVDs since the first of the year. To help with the cost of cleaning, beginning April 1, 2013, the library will charge $1.00 for every DVD that is returned with scratches. If you have any questions about cleaning your player, contact Eunice or Stacey at the library. Thank you!

BOOKS FOR BABIES
Welcome your baby to the wonderful world of reading! The Stevens County Library offers a special program expressly designed for the youngest members of the community and their families. Parents of newborns living in Stevens County are invited to pick up a â€œBooks for Babiesâ€ kit at the library. The kit includes freebies and information on materials and services the library offers.
The numbers of unaccompanied children coming to the library after school have increased tremendously this year, and with the change of seasons, we are concerned about the safety of our after-school crowd. Lost children, minor injuries and severe weather are all concerns with children who are without adult supervision. Because we never know when and where an emergency may occur, we are implementing a sign-in for every minor that comes to the library without a parent. Each child will log in at the front desk with their name and a phone number where a parent or guardian may be reached. Parents and/or guardians need to make sure that children know the full name and correct contact number for the adult to be called. If an issue arises, library staff can contact the parent or guardian and resolve the matter immediately.
