National Library Week 

The Perry County Public Library is celebrating National Library Week by having a fine free week from April 14-19. Return your overdue items during this week and the fine will be forgiven. Already have an existing fine? Bring in items to be donated to the KY River Regional Animal Shelter; for each item that is donated $2.00 will be taken off your fine. This will not apply to lost or damaged items. Also while supplies last, we’ll be giving away treats for new library card sign-ups. Contact Amy Eversole or stop by the library for more details and a list of needed items.
