Food for Fines starts November 1st

The Cherokee Regional Library System’s 2016 Food for Fines Campaign will begin on Tuesday, November 1st and will continue through Wednesday, November 23rd.

Library patrons may “pay” library overdue fines with a canned food item. This will help re-stock food banks in Dade and Walker County Georgia. Please help us as we give back to our community during the holiday season. Items collected will be donated to Tri State Food Bank, The Cottage, the Care Mission and the Rossville Church of Christ Food Pantry.

One canned food item equals $1.00 in paid fines with a limit of 10 cans (or $10 in fines). Lost or damaged book fees may not be paid with food. Food items must be in good condition and unexpired.


Gale LegalForms Now Available

The Cherokee Regional Library System now has access to Gale LegalForms through GALILEO (GeorgiA LIbrary LEarning Online).

Gale LegalForms helps patrons understand common legal procedures through access to authentic, professional legal documents. Useful for filing patents and trademarks, developing leases, creating bills of sale, delegating power of attorney, and more, these forms are ideal for supporting legal tasks that business owners need to manage. The forms in Gale LegalForms are drafted by attorneys.

Click the link below to get started! (Note: If you are accessing the link from home, you will need your library’s current GALILEO password. Call any of our open libraries with your library card number in hand to receive the password over the phone.)
