Circulation Policy Changes Q and A
Changed policies at Galion Public Library: books and many other items now have no overdue fines; long-overdue items and replacement costs can block you from checking out; replacement fees for lost items can be canceled if the items are returned within six months; existing overdue fines are being wiped; and renewals are now automatic, as long as nothing blocks them. Read on for details.

Tree Decorating Contest
Individuals, families, organizations, and businesses are invited to enter our tree decorating contest. Trees may be submitted November 30 through December 5. The public may vote for their favorite tree once daily from December 7-12. The 3 trees with the most votes will win prizes. Requirements: Trees must be under 2 feet tall and able to stand up on their own. Living trees may be used, but must be in a pot or base. Trees may be created by someone else (artificial trees or craft base) but decorated by the entrants, or the entire tree may be handmade by the entrants out of any materials they choose. You may decorate using any theme you would like, but please keep it family-friendly.
