  • COLUMN: The Obscure Alcove by Sheree Priddy

    In doing some online research not long ago, I ran across this article that I would like to pass on to you. It has some suggestions that might help all patrons of the LaRue County Public Library. I always need suggestions to keep me organized and thought you might too. 

    “Keep Track of Library Books and Avoid Fines” comes from www.lifeyourway.net. I hope you will find at least one suggestion easy for you to implement as we approach a busy – and hopefully pleasant – summer.
