PJC Library News
Our library is open.
Come by and browse.

New books can be found on the mantle. To check out a book, find the pocket with a card in the back. Write your name and the date you borrowed the book. Leave the card in one of the blue bins.

Please return all borrowed books to one of the two blue bins provided -- one in the library by the large windowsill, the other on the guest desk in the main office. This will enable the librarians to keep books in circulation and keep track of who is borrowing our books. Do not shelve returned books.

Thank you for your cooperation. -- Barbara & Liz
