With all that the pandemic has involved, some school library books have gotten lost in the shuffle.

When the pandemic shut down schools in the spring, students could not return books they borrowed from the school library. Since then, some of those books have been forgotten.

Karla Fry, librarian at Jefferson Local Schools’ high school and middle school, wants students and their parents to know that those overdue books can be dropped off anytime during school hours, Monday through Friday. A blue book bin sits outside the front door at the high school. A clear plastic bin sits outside the front door at the middle school.

“There are no fines. We’re just happy to get the books back,” Fry said.

Anyone with questions can contact Fry at (614) 879-7681, ext. 2308. She is happy to help in any way, including emailing photos of the covers of the missing books to make them easier to find.

All returned books will be quarantined for five days and disinfected before going back into circulation.
