Hurlburt Field - Whether stationed here at Hurlburt Field or abroad, service members can expect to find the same, or very similar, prices at Army & Air Force Exchange Service facilities worldwide.

Known as pricing parity, this practice ensures Exchange prices are established centrally.

"While there may be some slight price differentiations that occur with items purchased locally overseas, per Department of Defense policy the Exchange doesn't increase prices in order to cover shipping or other higher operational costs," said Eglin/Hurlburt Exchange General Manager Myra Florence. "No matter where they are called to serve, it is our goal to bring Airmen and their families the same products, at the same cost."

Despite the Exchange's efforts to price consistently, a few exceptions can occur.

"There may be some price differences between locations in the continental United States and overseas for categories such as gasoline, alcohol and tobacco," said Florence. "These prices are set based on Department of Energy benchmarks, or local surveys, established by DoD directives."

Additionally, prices for some convenience and frequently purchased items may be lower at different locations based on local promotions or surveys. To ensure prices on these same items overseas are consistent with those service members would expect to see at home, overseas prices are set at the average surveyed CONUS price.

Airmen and their families worldwide can learn more about Exchange policies by visiting http://www.shopmyexchange.com/CustomerService/.

ir Force Libraries Celebrate National Library Week, 13-19 April! National Library Week will be observed 13-19 April 2014 with the theme, “Lives Change @ Your Library.”

Be sure to stop by your base library and sign the Library Declaration poster; the AF Library with the most signatures will receive additional items for their collection. AF Libraries will offer a variety of local programs and contests as well. This year’s celebration includes National Library Worker’s Day on Tuesday, 15 April; it’s a day for staff, users and the community to recognize the valuable contributions made by all library workers. Teen Literature Day is celebrated on Thursday, 17 April, and is aimed at raising awareness among the general public that young adult literature is a vibrant, growing genre with much to offer today’s teens. Additionally, base libraries will collect “What I Like About My Library” forms to showcase the many benefits of library services.

History In the mid-1950’s, research showed that Americans were spending less on books and more on radios, televisions and musical instruments. Concerned that Americans were reading less, the American Library Association (ALA) in conjunction with the American Book Publishers formed a non-profit citizen’s organization called the National Book Committee in 1954. The committee’s goals were ambitious. They ranged from “encouraging people to read in their increasing leisure time” to “improving incomes and health” and “developing strong and happy family life.”

In 1957, the committee developed a plan for National Library Week based on the idea that once people were motivated to read, they would support and use libraries. With the cooperation of ALA and with help from the Advertising Council, the first National Library Week was observed in 1958 with the theme “Wake Up and Read!”

Support your Hurlburt library – stop by and sign the poster, find something good to read – and just have a good time!
