  • Walking into the LaRue County Public Library with an overdue or “late” book or movie could cost a pretty penny depending on how long you’ve kept it past the due date.

    However, those who had to worry about paying a dollar to make up for a day’s worth of tardiness on a DVD – now pay half the cost.

    The library recently announced changes for the charges that would be expected when returning overdue items, making copies, making laminates or placing faxes.

    Harold Bowling, who will be 77 in August, was baptized at St. Catherine Catholic Church in New Haven as a child and had been a parishioner there most of his life.
