We’ve seen quite a few changes since the last time we refreshed our website; we stream and download more often, attend programs and events virtually, and try out new – and old – technology at the Old Post Office Makerspace and Creative Studios.

Idea Exchange is Fine Free…Forever As of July 5, 2021, Idea Exchange permanently eliminated all overdue fines on late materials and removed all existing overdue fines.

We never want someone to stop using the services at Idea Exchange because they can’t afford overdue fines.
