PAXTON, MA - The Richards Memorial Library is pleased to announce that we have received a grant in the amount of $950 to help defray the cost of museum passes for various cultural institutions.The library director, Pam Chenevert, applied for the grant earlier this fall. Senator Stephen M. Brewer (Served 1997-2014) visited the library to present the check from the Barre Savings Charitable Foundation, Inc. Brewer also currently serves at the Barre Savings Charitable Foundation Chair.
"Thank you Barre Savings Charitable Foundation and Senator Stephen M. Brewer for this generous donation which helps us continue to provide popular museum passes to our library patrons," Pam Chenevert said.
The library's museum passes are available to all adult (18+) library patrons with a CWMars account in good standing (owing less than $10 in fines). Click here for a full list of museum passes.
CW Mars will be streamlining their communication regarding renewal notices.
Currently: You receive an email courtesy notice two days before an item is due and a second notice on the due date stating status of the auto-renewal.
The body of the notice will also separate items into the two categories, with items failing to renew listed first.
For failed renewals, please either return the library on or before the due date, or contact the library at (508) 754-0793 to request an extension or return the item. Please note, extending items past the failed renewal is at the discretion of the library.
October 13, 2023 (planned)
Items renewed prior to their due date will now renew based on the due date instead of the date of renewal. This will ensure patrons or staff who renew items early do not miss out on the full renewal timeframe.
Note that this will not affect renewals performed on overdue circulations, which will still be calculated from the date of renewal.
