January 2016 As The Page Turns

Happy New Year from the Staff at the Osborne Public Library.

McFadden Tree Forest – This annual event was very successful for the Osborne Food Pantry this year.  The library collected almost 550 items.  The winner of the People’s Choice Award was the Land of Os Preschool Tree.  They had 135 items under their tree.  The wreath winners were as follows: Girl Scouts for Best Representation of a Business or Organization, The Christian Church for Best Representation of a Book, and Nex-Tech for Best Representation of a Sweet Treat.  Tree winners were as follows: Farmer’s Bank for Best Representation of a Sweet Treat, Solomon Valley Vision for Best Representation of a Business or Organization, and Anderson, Riechert, Anderson LLC won with Most Facebook Likes and Best Representation of a Book.  Start planning your tree or wreath for 2016.

Polar Express Literacy Walk – The library tried something new in conjunction with the Jolly Oz Holiday.  We sponsored a literacy walk that saw 54 purchasing their tickets to read The Polar Express that was placed, page by page, in businesses around town.  Winners of the drawing after the Polar Express Walk were: Carter Delaney, a library shirt and bag; Kaitlyn Shellito, a tablet case and battery pack; Zavier Dooley, a Scentsy Warmer; Brantly Bunck, Star Wars legos; and Wesley Sanders won the Kindle.  It was a great day to be out reading with your family.

Grant Monies received - The library is pleased to announce that grant monies have been received from the Dane G. Hansen Foundation, the McFadden Charitable Trust and the Central Kansas Library System to finish the replacement of new heat and air in the library in the spring of 2016.  The library replaced three AC units and two heat units in the summer of 2015.  The grant monies received from the mentioned organizations will be used to replace two AC units and three heat units.

Library Children’s Programs – All kids programming is back in full swing after the holidays.  They are working hard on making projects for the second annual Arty Party which will be held on February 1st.   

3D Printer – The library has the 3D printer from CKLS for a couple of more weeks.  Make the library a stop on a daily outing to see this new technology.
