Life at the Library

The cooler weather is the perfect time to renew your relationship with the library. You can find a good book and curl up by the fireplace and enjoy a peaceful afternoon to yourself before the holiday craziness sets in! We are preparing for another "Christmas at the Library", and along with the usual activities like movie matinees, monthly Lego Club, and Minecraft afternoons, this has been a busy season for us. New materials are always arriving at the library, so even if you stop in a couple of days a week, things are always changing!

In addition to new childrens, adult and teen reads, you may be interested in our rotating collection of audiobooks or large print titles. 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. Adult and teen book clubs have resumed for the winter season.. 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.

Next time you are out enjoying the crisp autumn air, 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!
