PUNXSUTAWNEY — So, do you have an overdue library book somewhere in your house?

This is your week to return it to the Punxsutawney Memorial Library — no fines, no questions asked.

Fine-Free Week is part of the Punxsy library’s recognition of National Library Week, which runs from Monday through Sunday across the United States.

Recently, the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners declared this week National Library Week in the county.

Also, the Punxsy library will host a party from 3 to 5 p.m. Saturday, complete with food donated by the Friends of the Library; a performance by a student pianist; and an update on the library’s ongoing work, said library Director Coral Ellshoff.

The Punxsy library continues to stay busy throughout the week. It hosts story hour for three- to five-year-olds from 1 to 2 p.m. every Monday; Tail-Waggin’ Tutors — during which time youngsters get to practice their skills by reading aloud to service animals — for six- to 10-year-olds at 4:30 p.m. Thursday; and Reading Central for two- to five-year-olds from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. the second and fourth Saturday of each month.

Ellshoff said the library will soon receive some new magazine shelves and looks to hire a part-time children’s program coordinator in coming weeks.
