As of January 1, 2019, we will no longer send library notices via postal mail. (Mailed notices include alerts about holds, due dates, or fines.) This will save staff time and reduce waste - saving more than $18,000 annually. There are several free and easy ways to access your library account. Add an email address to receive email notices, check your account online, or call or visit your local library for assistance.

This resource addresses important questions surrounding the issue: How do immigration bans affect different groups? How can nations reconcile humanitarian and security concerns for refugees? How much of the nation s economy depends on immigrant labor? And finally, do increased border controls and deportations actually work?
