2014 September As The Page Turns



September is National Library Card Sign-up.  The board of trustees and the staff are inviting anyone that doesn’t have a library card to stop by the library and get one this month.  All you need to bring with you is a photo ID.  The staff is also updating contact information and internet agreements on all current patrons.

Story Hour has kicked off with a big group of kids. We are averaging 28 children on Friday mornings.  If your last name begins with a letter from A-M you will need to come to the first 45 minute session beginning at 10 am.  If you last name begins with a letter from N-Z the 45 minute session will begin at 11am. 

WAC has officially begun and the turnout is tremendous.  Over 60 kids in the library on Wednesday afternoons.  If your child is coming and you haven’t filled out an enrollment form, please stop by the library and do this.  We want to make sure that we have all contact information for the kids.

Amanda Billings is sharing her collection of Depression Glass with the library for the next couple of months. 

The library is pleased to announce that the library will host the Kansas Poet Laureate, Wyatt Townley,  on October 21st  for a Brown Bag Lunch presentation.  She will also have her books on sale at that time.

Remember as school starts that the library has many books that are AR books and we can always check in to getting a book from another library if you are looking for something that we don’t have.

Our hours are, M & Th – 10-7, Tu, W, F – 10-5 and Sat. 10-2.  The library is closed on Sundays.

The online card catalog can be accessed from our website, www.osbornepubliclibrary.blogspot.com  or at http://catalog.ckls.org    If you are having problems looking things up let us know at the library, 346-5486, and we will help you.

The library is a wireless hotspot.  This service is provided by Nex-Tech.
