Best tip for child care search? First consider quality

Prescott (September 1, 2017) – For working families, finding a quality child care center or preschool for their infant, toddler or preschooler is an important decision. In Arizona, 60 percent of children live in families where all of the adults work. So, most children spend all or part of their day learning from other adults.

New Year, New Director, New Website!

Yavapai County Free Library District said goodbye to Barbara Kile in January, when she retired as Director after serving the District in various roles for almost 30 years.  The Board of Supervisors appointed Corey Christians (then Yavapai Library Network Manager) to take on the job.  This new website, is the first public expression of his vision of ever greater resources and service to Yavapai County library patrons. 

I move?

Make sure you keep your contact info current. See your home library staff to update your address. 

I lose or damage an item I checked out (or my pet/little brother does)?

Damaged: Let library staff know that the item is damaged so it can be repaired or replaced.  If it must be replaced, you will have to pay for the item, plus a processing fee.

 

Lost:  As with damaged items, lost items must be replaced, so you will have to pay for the item, plus a processing fee. If it turns up later, contact the owning library regarding their refund policy.

 

My books are overdue?

District branch libraries do not charge fines for late items. Just bring them back as soon as possible. However, some libraries in the Network do charge fines, and those fines can be collected at any library you use. Some libraries will not let you check out new materials if you have unpaid fines. If you owe more than $10.00, your account will be frozen until you pay the fines.

Use a public library computer?

All the District branch libraries have public computers for patrons to use.  You can print, copy and fax, as well.  Check your email, do your taxes, write a paper for school, make a yard sale sign… Library staff can help get you started.

  • B&W Copies: $.10 per side
  • Color Prints: $.50 per side
  • Fax (Incoming/Outgoing)
    • First page $.50
    • Additional Pages $.10

Suggest an item?

If the Network catalog does not have what you are looking for, and it might be an item lots of other patrons would enjoy, write the title and author down and give it to library staff.
