JOHN DAY - The Grant County Library lifted its moratorium on donations this month.
Patrons can donate books, videos and audiotapes by dropping them off at the library, 507 S. Canyon Blvd.
The three-month moratorium was set to allow time to process a backlog of donated materials.
The library staff said donations are welcome and will help fill gaps in the collection.
The public also is welcome to check out the "free" box at the front door and a 25-cent sale shelf near the front counter. These areas feature older or little-used books from the stacks and the bookmobile and excess donations.
Another new feature to check out is the video section of the "new books" shelf. In adding to new books for borrowing, the shelves will showcase videos that are new to the lending collection.
