St. Paul Public Libraries are now fine free! We no longer charge overdue fines on items that are returned late, and we have forgiven all previous overdue fines. However, we still hold patrons responsible for returning items. If something is not returned, a bill is issued for the cost of the item. If you have any questions about how this affects your library account, do not hesitate to give us a call or stop by. In response to this change, I have already been asked about other ways to donate to the library. The Friends of Saint Paul Public Library welcome donations year-round, and those funds are used to support critical Library programs and services. To learn more visit thefriends.org or call 651-222-3242.

The West 7th Book Club is meeting January 24 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond. Evicted is the winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction and tells the true stories of families struggling to pay their rent. Desmond lived alongside these families in Milwaukee and documented their day-to-day experiences as well as the policies that impacted them. Give us a call to reserve a copy.
West 7th and all Saint Paul Public Libraries will be closed January 1 & 21.
