⚠️ PLEASE READ: TROY PUBLIC LIBRARY REOPEN PLAN PHASE 1 ANNOUNCEMENT ⚠️
.
Although Governor Whitmer has announced that public libraries may reopen on Monday, June 8, there is still much work to be done before TPL can reopen safely for the public and the staff.
.
Due to reduced levels of staff, social distancing guidelines, and the need to prepare the building to allow for a safe opening, the Library will open services in phases. In phase 1, Troy Public Library’s walk-up drop boxes will be open Wednesday, June 3 at 10 am through Friday, June 5 at 9 pm. If you are able to return materials during this window, please do so. However, you may also return your materials at a future drop box re-opening date, which will be announced on Tuesday, June 9, 2020. The walk-up drop boxes are located to the left of the main Library entrance.
.
Returned materials will be quarantined for 72 hours. There are currently 40,000 items checked out of the Troy Public Library. Please wait 10 days before contacting the Library about your returned items.

It is the morning of the reaping that will kick off the tenth annual Hunger Games. In the Capitol, eighteen-year-old Coriolanus Snow is preparing for his one shot at glory as a mentor in the Games. The once-mighty house of Snow has fallen on hard times, its fate hanging on the slender chance that Coriolanus will be able to out charm, outwit, and outmaneuver his fellow students to mentor the winning tribute.

The odds are against him. He's been given the humiliating assignment of mentoring the female tribute from District 12, the lowest of the low. Their fates are now completely intertwined - every choice Coriolanus makes could lead to favor or failure, triumph or ruin. Inside the arena, it will be a fight to the death. Outside the arena, Coriolanus starts to feel for his doomed tribute . . . and must weigh his need to follow the rules against his desire to survive no matter what it takes.
