Tackling Returns this Holiday Season

For any number of reasons, on occasion, a Christmas gift needs to be exchanged or returned. Some retailers make it easier than ever to make those exchanges or returns after the holidays, by modifying their standard return policy. While, others do not vary from their standard policy. Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry issued a Consumer Alert on Tuesday, December 26, 2017, and offered some tips for handling returns.

“Return policies vary greatly from store to store,” said General Landry. “So taking a little time to understand each one will go a long way in ensuring your holiday stays merry and bright.”

General Landry suggests the following for hassle-free returns and exchanges: Keep your receipts. Keep original packaging. Bring identification. Monitor the return clock as many retailers base their return time frame on purchase date.

Friends of the Library Scheduled for January 3rd

Residents of Winn Parish are invited to the second meeting of Friends of the Winn Parish Library, on Thursday, January 3, 5:30 p.m., in the Lawrence White Meeting Room at the library. This new community organization plans to support the library by raising money for additional materials and programs, through book sales and other fundraisers.

Some may think that in an increasingly digital world, public libraries are struggling to stay relevant. The Pew Research Center found just the opposite; communities continue to turn to libraries as sources of reliable information, as gathering places, and to promote literacy, especially among school-aged children. Of those surveyed, 85% “think that coordinating more closely with local schools in providing resources to children is something libraries should ‘definitely’ do.”
