GLIN LIBRARY: The library is open 4 days a week from Tuesday to Friday with two night openings Tues and Thurs from 6 to 8. Books are lent for a two week period and can be re-stamped if one needs them for a longer time. Sadly, many books get “lost” or the borrowers forget to return them so Peg would appeal to all readers to ensure that any books that are “out there” be returned as soon as possible to ensure that all borrowers have equal access to all titles. Thank you for your co-operation.
