Free Legal Advice For Kent County Renters

Free Legal Advice For Kent County Renters

If you're renting a house or an apartment and have an issue with your landlord, what happens if you can't afford to move or hire an attorney?

Kent District Library offering a deal on Overdue Books

Kent District Library offering a deal on Overdue Books

The Kent District Library is offering a deal to people who are hoarding overdue books at home, in fear of having to pay that dreaded fee upon return.

For the week of May 7-13, the library is offering KDL cardholders the opportunity to return overdue books at no charge, but there are stipulations.

Cardholders of the KDL may visit any library branch, check in, and for every 10 minutes you spend in the library either listening or reading, you will be credited $1.00 toward your fine with a max of $10.00.

Check out those drawers, shelves and closets for books you may have overlooked and get them back to the library.
