Outdoor Media Returns Fundraiser

     Our three public libraries and their Friends of the Library groups are conducting a fundraiser to purchase outdoor Media Returns.
     Currently, patrons risk a $5 fine for depositing CDs, audiocassettes, DVDs, and VHS movies in the Book Return. A media return separates the formats, keeping heavier print materials from the lightweight plastics, and provides a “softer” landing. A wide chute opening accommodates the wide range of popular audiovisual materials. A stainless steel Media Return with heavy pedestal and lifetime warranty costs about $2,500.
     Donation envelopes are available at each library. Checks should be made out to the individual Friends group, ATTENTION: Media Return Fund.

     These groups are: Friends of Bogue Banks Public Library, and Friends of Western Carteret Public Library.
     For more information contact Susan W. Simpson, 728-2050.

Thank you for your support!

     UPDATE: Funds have been realized for the Media Return for the Carteret County Public Library in Beaufort! THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
