Ms. Zadeh will always respond to all suggestions. • If you do not hear back in a few weeks ask her about it in case her response to you was not delivered correctly.
When your suggested book arrives, you are notified and you can check it out first!
Budget Cuts Sadly, due to budget cuts across the state which filtered down to our district, the library budget this year is again substantially reduced. I will be able to purchase very few new books and magazines but will still respond to all suggestions and will keep track of your requests for next year. Let’s all hope that funding will be restored SOON!
Photocopies and Computer Printing Free each day: 4 photocopies from library materials 10 computer printouts Ask staff at circulation desk for these services.
