Tomorrow is Groundhog Day! Do you think Rudy will see his shadow and we will have 6 more weeks of Winter or is Spring right around the corner?

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful 2016! Things are back in full swing here at OCPL. Story Times returned this week as well as Toddler Time that will resume tomorrow. There have been some changes to our schedule for 2016. We will no longer have an evening Story Time on Mondays. We hate to see these go, but declining attendance for the last several years left us no choice. We will hold special Family Story Times throughout the year on Monday evenings. The first of these will be held on Monday February 29 to celebrate Leap Day! We will read about animals that leap and jump, play with jump ropes, make a jumping frog craft, and decorate frog sugar cookies. We will be requiring RSVP's for this event. You may RSVP by calling (304)232-0244 by Friday February 26 at 5:00 pm. Story Times will continue to be held on Tuesdays at 10:00 am and Wednesdays at 10:00 am. Toddler Time will continue on Fridays at 10:30 am in the auditorium. In regards to winter weather. We will not cancel Story Time or Toddler Time for inclement weather unless the library is forced to close. If you are concerned, you may call (304) 232-0244.
