Life at the Library

Winter has arrived in Oakfield! The library follows the policy that if the Oakfield Schools close due to inclement weather, the library is also closed. Due dates are adjusted accordingly. This only applies if school is cancelled in the morning, not when released early due to weather concerns. Please call the library if you are unsure of our hours during extreme weather. Our patrons safety is our first concern-please do not fear the ten cent fine with slippery roads outside.

In addition to new childrens, adult and teen reads arriving often, you may be interested in our rotating collection of audiobooks or large print titles. Look for them next time you are at the library. Collections change every other month, so there is always new things to choose from. 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. If you receieved a new tablet for Christmas, download the Overdrive app and get started. Call or stop in if you need help.

We are seeking adults interested in book club. Book clubs can read certain types of books, maybe mystery or science fiction, or they can have a generalized theme. Or no theme at all!  Groups may wish to meet in the afternoon and enjoy the discussion with a cup of coffee, or even at lunch time, bringing a bag lunch to enjoy while sharing their thoughts on the chosen book. Our members choose what works for them, including meeting dates, so it is flexible enough for anyone’s schedule!  If you are interested in joining, or even just looking for more information, let us know.

It won't be long until tax forms will be arriving at the library. We carry the most widely used forms for our patrons. Other forms can be printed from the IRS website.

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!
