More than 6,000 Library patrons gave us their e-mail contact information during the campaign that ran from Sept. 1 through Oct. 31. We really appreciate your willingness to help the Library reduce mailing costs and waste.
Even if you missed the prize drawings, it's not too late to help. Stop by your favorite Jefferson County Public Library and ask staff to add your e-mail address to your contact information. There are benefits for everyone. The Library reduces its costs, and through e-mail, you'll receive more detailed information about your holds and overdue materials than is currently provided in our postcard mailings.
Congratulations to the following winners of the Nov. 1 e-mail address campaign prize drawing:
