Jackson City Library is Fine Free!

Effective January 1st, The Jackson City Library is a fine free library! This means that there will be no fines for overdue materials. Existing fines will be forgiven. Lost or damaged item charges will still apply.

          Patrons are encouraged to turn materials in on time, or to renew the items. Although there will no longer be late fees, users will be blocked from checking out materials when they have overdue items, or when lost items (items more than 90 days late) total more than $5.

Mitten Tree

Fine Free December is coming up! Throughout the month of December, fines will be waived on items returned late. Also, if you have existing fines, you can donate to our mitten tree and the fines will be taken off your account. This does not apply to lost items, though. Accepted items are mittens, hats, socks, scarves, canned goods, non perishable foods, etc. 

Sharon Hatfield Enchanted Ground

In a fascinating work of religious history and cultural inquiry, Hatfield brings to life the true story of a nineteenth-century farmer-spiritualist, Jonathan Koons, whom thousands traveled to Ohio to see. As heirs to the second Great Awakening, he and his followers were part of a larger, uniquely American moment that still marks the culture today.
