Food for Fines
Celebrate National Library Week from April 13-19th, 2014 at the Brentwood Library by participating in Food for Fines. Donate canned/boxed goods to our Operation Food Search barrel during this week and have $1 waived from your account for each food item you contribute. We will waive $10 maximum on each account. We will not waive fees from billed items, but all other fines are eligible to be waived.
Drop in on Tuesday afternoons between 3:30 and 5 pm and Lexi will be here with free homework help. Math is her specialty but she can assist with other subjects as well. Tutoring Tuesdays begins on Tuesday, April 15th and continues through Tuesday, May 13th. Elementary, middle school and high school students are welcome. It is free and it is first come, first served.

That’s Right, I said It: Libraries Are Cool by Steve Bowman
Check out the awesome article about the Brentwood Public Library by Steve Bowman of The Brentwood Spirit! The article includes many pictures from our recent 75th anniversary party. An excerpt follows:
I actually believe libraries are cool. When I enter one I honestly get a little excited. It’s like the feeling you get when you enter your favorite store. For me, a library is like a store that carries four things I love: books, magazines, music and movies. And they’re all free. -Steve Bowman
