In this week’s O’Fallon Weekly, you get double the information about you public library. Library Director, Molly Scanlon announced the upcoming OTHS study night, Monday, May 15, 7-10 PM to help students prepare for finals. Coffee and snacks will be available as well as places to study alone or in groups. A school ID is required to enter after hours.
Molly also revealed our very own Ryan Johnson, Adult Services Manager, was chosen from 300 applicants to help launch a new website for the library through our EBSCO called Stackers. Not only will OFPL be featured as the premier website, it will be free for the library for the next three years.
The anticipated launch date of our more sophisticated and user-friendly site is May 30. Your usernames and passwords will not be changed, and our web address will remain ofpl.info. Ryan said the new website will be compatible with all devices and screen sizes, and we will still have all of the content in addition to “a super-fancy-facelift, with some extra bells and whistles tossed in.”
Also, our biggest-ever Friends of the Library Book Sale continues throughout May 15, during regular business hours. You won’t want to miss out on some summer vacation reads, DVDs and audiobooks.
There are so many activities planned for this month. Here are just a few:
Youth Services “Design a Robot” contest for students in Kindergarten through 6th grade. Click on here then on that page, click on the “Design a Robot Contest” you’ll find the rules and design packet to download.
On May 20, between 11 AM and 3 PM, we will host the Homeschool Art Show. This event will feature a variety of art projects by local homeschool kids ages 3-17 using techniques such as cubism, post-impressionism, and contemporary collage.
As always, here’s a big shout-out to the kind folks at the O’Fallon Weekly for sharing our news and notes each week.
