The library is partnering with Salt Lake County Health Department all month for a sunscreen drive to benefit the 4th Street Clinic that provides protection to our homeless population. The county’s homeless are at an increased risk for skin cancer because of the lack of access to sunscreen, hats and other sun safety measures. You can help by donating unused bottles of sunscreen, hats or other sun protection and in return receive a voucher for any item from the book sale free. To prevent sunburns and skin cancer, the Health Department encourages everyone to wear sunscreen and cover your skin from the sun.
April is Money Smart Month and Utah State University Extension will be presenting a number of programs to help you be more financially aware.

The library recently tested a new service called Lucky Day Collection at the Sandy Library. We are expanding this service to additional libraries starting April 15, 2015. Lucky Day offers a limited collection of current bestsellers and popular DVDs to customers walking into the Library. Please note that the Lucky Day Collection has different borrowing guidelines: seven-day loan, no renewals, no holds, limit of two items at a time and $.25-a-day fines. We hope that you will consider using this new service at these libraries: Bingham Creek, Hunter, Sandy, West Jordan and Whitmore.
