Borrow More DVDs!
Effective immediately, patrons may now borrow from our Main Library at Garnerville:
That would be a total of 15 DVDs per library card. In the Village, the "pink label new" DVDs are still limited to 4 per card. The Village collection is much smaller so Teen or Childrens are limited to 4 plus 4 Adult Services' older DVDs for a total of 8 per library card. Note: Spring Valley and Stony Point patrons cannot borrow any "pink label new" DVDs.

Preparation for U.S. Citizenship
We are offering classes to assist interested persons in the process of becoming American citizens. To become a citizen you must be at least 18 years old, have a permanent residence card for five years (three years if you are married to a U.S. citizen), and believe in the U.S. Constitution.
Weekly information classes will be held on Tuesday and Thursdays from 6 pm to 8:45 pm at the main library in Garnerville. Both classes must be attended. These classes will inform attendees of the process of becoming a citizen and give assistance with filling out the N-400 application for United States Citizenship and Immigration Services.
There will also be information about getting a waiver of the fee in cases of financial hardship. Classes will be taught by Jane Lemkin, a Literacy Volunteer. Jane has taught and assisted over 100 applicants to a successful interview and acceptance as U.S. Citizens.
