On April 6, 2017, Joeten-Kiyu Public Library will have a National Library Week and National Book Mobile Day proclamation signing and JKPL community garden ribbon-cutting ceremony starting at 10:30 a.m.
So come one, come all, young and old. It’s that time of the year to celebrate your library, and your love of literacy. Biba JKPL! Biba literacy! Biba CNMI!
For the whole month of April we are having our book-sale in the library and then on April 8, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. we will be having a special outdoor book-sale for the public.
On April 9 we will be open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and also celebrating Free Library Card Day.
Patrons who have lost their library cards can apply for another card for free if their library record is clear of fines. When applying for a free library card please bring a CNMI driver’s license I.D. or passport, mayor’s I.D. and any piece of mail from your mailbox to verify your mailing address and to also update your mailing address if need be.
Children under 18 applying for a free library card must have their parents or guardians with them when applying.
For the rest of the week we will be having Amnesty Week as well. So if you or anybody you know have any JKPL books and items that are way past due, please turn them in and all late fees/fines will be waived as long as books or items are still in good condition.
Throughout the whole month of April we will be also having a canned food drive. Patrons who have library fines can balance off fines with weight of canned food donations. For example, $1 off per pound. All canned goods will be donated to Karidat Social Services. Expired goods will not be accepted.
