The library has begun their “Geek the Library” campaign. In using geek as a verb it has several meanings. 1. To love, to enjoy, to celebrate, to have an intense passion for something. 2. To express an interest in. 3. To possess a large amount of knowledge in. 4. To promote. The library will be looking for several people willing to share what they geek with the library. Whatever you geek, the library supports it all. Stop by the library and tell us what you geek. If you would like we could take a picture of you and make it into a poster to share with others to show your support of the library. Be looking for our posters.
The first adult program for 2012 was a writing workshop on January 28th, in the community room. 12 people attended this workshop that was led by past Kansas poet laureate, Denise Low. Plans are being made for a follow-up workshop in July.
The Art Student of the Month is back on display at the library this month. OJHS student, Rhiannon Pittaway, has a picture collage on display. OHS student, Mike Schellinger, is showing his pottery talent. A big thanks to the school and art teacher, Mr. Kent Thompson, for allowing the library to share these items with the public.
In the month of February you think of chocolate for your sweetheart. The library is showcasing this idea with their display of Russell Stover items. Russell William Stover is an Osborne County Hall of Famer and his story begins in the Mt. Ayr township in our county. The library has fliers with facts about Russell Stover.
The library also has a few federal tax forms this year.
Don’t forget the new hours for the library. Our hours are, M & Th – 10-7, Tu, W, F – 10-5 and Sat. 10-2. The library is closed on Sundays.
