Please Return Items by May 11

When the stay at home order began, well over 13,000 items were checked out! Patrons have been returning books in our 24 hour book drop, and we have taken measures to quarantine and clean the items as they are returned. However, as of Monday, April 27, there are still 9,945 items checked out! So, we are asking that you please return those items soon. We are expecting the stay at home order to expire May 3, which means staff can start working on processing items again. Fines are waived for items checked out during the stay at home order.

Starting May 11, any books still out will begin incurring fines.
 We understand these are tough times, and it may be difficult for you to get to the library or to pay your fines. If you are having trouble, please call our customer service staff, 620-663-5441 x116 or e-mail info@hutchpl.org and let us know. We will be glad to work with you.
