Book Club bags are available to check out for six weeks and contain 10 copies of Large Print titles plus a supplementary guide to facilitate book group discussions. Sixteen different titles will be available throughout the year, with four new titles available each quarter.

Introducing automatic renewals, timelier overdue notices

To help make managing your library accounts a little easier, the Westlake Library is introducing a couple of changes.

Automatic renewals: Each day when the library closes, a computer program will check the system for items that were due that day and will attempt to renew them. Each card holder with successful auto-renewals will receive an emailed list of their renewed items along with the new due dates. Starting date: Monday, January 29, 2018.
