Make sure to make the library a stop during this Christmas season. We have lots of things planned for people to see and do.
McFadden Tree Forest – The library is filling up with Christmas trees and Christmas wreaths. We have so much creativity from the people that put up these Christmas decorations. Remember to bring in an item for the Osborne Food Pantry to vote for your favorite tree or wreath. The library goal is to reach 500 items for the food pantry this holiday season. Pictures of the trees will be posted on Facebook and you can like your favorites on the Osborne Public Library Facebook page. The Christmas tree or wreath that has the most likes on our page will get a prize also.
Polar Express Literacy Walk – This Christmas the library is doing something new. On December 19th from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm we will have a literacy walk set up on Main Street. Come to the library on that Saturday morning and purchase a ticket for $5.00 to take on the walk. The staff has made boards that have the book, “The Polar Express” on them. There will be five stops where you can have your ticket punched. Bring your punched ticket back to the library and put it in the drawing for a prize. Some of the prizes that will be given away are: a Kindle, a Scentsy Warmer, Star Wars Legos, a library t-shirt and bag. We encourage you to stop in the stores and do some shopping while you are on your walk.
Library Children’s Programs – With a two week Christmas school break this year, the library is offering a few special programs for the kids to attend. On December 23rd at 10:30 we will have a special story time with a few games and a take home project. On December 30th from 2-4 we will have a game afternoon. We will have board games set out and the kids can come in and play different games. If the weather is bad on either of these days we might call off the activities so call ahead and see if we are still having them.
3D Printer – The library has a 3D printer on loan from the Central Kansas Library System until the middle of January. A consultant from CKLS visited the library during an after school program and showed the kids how a 3D printer works. The staff has been busy making Christmas ornaments and other things for patrons. Make sure to visit the library while the printer is here and learn about and watch this latest technology.
