Life at the Library

The fall season is officially here, and we have been planning some great activities to help everyone relax and relieve a little back to school stress!  Special events include Couponing class, Medicare seminar and a book group for tweens. As always, movie matinees, monthly Lego Club, and Minecraft fun are just some of the ways you can spend an afternoon at the library.

                  

 

 

National Hispanic Heritage Month is September 15 to October 15. This is a  month designated to  celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Look for the display in the library which includes not just books on people and the history of Spanish culture, but cookbooks and music with a Spanish/Latin theme.

 Adult and teen book clubs will resume in September. The adult group is looking for new members to join them. The group meets monthly and read a wide variety of genres. If you are interested, please contact the library. The group chooses the meeting dates and the titles, so it is flexible enough for anyone’s schedule! Our teen group meets monthly, and anyone can join at any time. The Divergent series will be a topic of discussion, with a viewing of the newly released movie to top off the evening.

Many of the popular authors are releasing fall titles, and they have started arriving at the library so be sure to watch the "What's New" on our home page. Place holds from the comfort of home, or while on the go. Our eBook collection continues to grow, and if you haven't looked at the available titles yet, we encourage you to do so. The newest most popular books, available for free download with a library card. It doesn't get any better!

Next time you are out enjoying the last of the warm weather, stop and see our display window in the village office lobby. Funded with a grant from the Oakfield Community Foundation, this is a fantastic way for us to spread the word about what the library has to offer. There are some big plans in mind for this window, so make it a point to stop and see it. More changes are in store this fall-expect some changes to our preschool story time and a handful of changes to our website. Nothing drastic, as requested, but you may notice some minor changes.

 

We welcome you to visit and visit often. If you know of someone new in town, point out to them that the library is a good place to start in getting to know Oakfield!
