College library declares 'Almost Amnesty Week'

Anne Arundel Community College librarians have declared an "Almost Amnesty Week," Tuesday through Sept. 14, for the return of overdue books.

There are approximately 1,000 overdue books out on loan from Andrew G. Truxal Library. Six hundred books have been overdue for more than three months. Missing volumes mean students sometimes cannot borrow needed books. It means added expense in stocking replacements. Others simply cannot be replaced.

During Almost Amnesty Week, tardy borrowers can return their overdue books and pay a maximum fine of $1 a book. The offer will be honored only during the one week. After that, cases of chronic offenders will be turned over to a collection agency.

New computer lab showcased at school

Volunteers from the new home community of Russett will showcase the new computer lab at Brock Bridge Elementary School to parents and students during back-to-school night at 7 p.m. Thursday. Volunteers and school officials will explain the computer lab and its capabilities to parents and students from about 7: 45 p.m. to 8: 30 p.m.

Russett residents and Russett's developer raised more than $15,000 to help Brock Bridge Elementary School fund and implement a comprehensive computer lab and network in the past school year.

The school has about 50 computers, which students this year will use to participate in such projects as Internet research programs connecting the school with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (for a space and science project) and with the Maryland Archives (for a history project).
