The Prescott Valley Public Library still has a problem with non-returned library books. During Thursday's work-study meeting, library staff will ask the Town Council to discuss entering into an agreement with Unique Management, a library-oriented collection company.
Currently, the Prescott Valley Public Library experiences an annual loss of $40,000 (70 percent representing the value of materials and the rest being uncollected fines).
In 1996 the council adopted a town code, which makes it a misdemeanor not to return borrowed library books. Still, losses are taking place and the library staff hope that joining forces with a collection company will result in a return of at least 65 percent of those materials.
Also on the agenda, the council will revisit an existing plan that encourages the placement of wireless facilities in certain zoned areas, a way of allowing service providers quick access to commercial and residential areas with little impact, according to a town report.
In addition, council will discuss the demolition of a dangerous, commercial building on Spouse Drive.
The work-study session begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Prescott Valley Library auditorium, 7401 E. Civic Circle.
