We have the OED!

The Oak Bluffs Public Library has purchased a complete set of the second edition Oxford English Dictionary. You can find this unique and informative dictionary on the shelves in the Reference area of the library.


I hope you come to the OB Library to meet our newest friend in the Children’s Room. We have a cute PANDA now and you are invited to try and name him. There are slips of paper on the desk that you can write your choice of name on, and put it inside the penguin shaped jar. We will vote on the name during the Happy New Year Story Time for ages 6-10 on December 29 at 3:30PM. I have a photo here of Kenny who is very happy to meet this PANDA!

Snow Family Making Story Time

We had a lot of fun reading books about Snowmen, snow women, snow kids and snow pets! Then we made snow families from ‘buffalo snow’ on a styrofoam base with orange pipecleaner ‘carrot’ noses and googly eyes with felt clothing.
Here is a photo of Savanna with her snow family. Check out the Flickr photos on the side panel to see more children’s wonderful & artistic snow people!
This is a sample of what we do during the Age 6-10 Story Time. Read for first half hour, then make a craft that reflects what we have just read. It’s a lot of fun, I hope you join us sometime on Fridays at 3:30, ending at 4:30PM. It’s a creative way to end your school week!

Library receives LCC grant from the MVCC!

The Oak Bluffs Public Library applied for and received a $255 grant from the Martha’s Vineyard Cultural Council, a local agency that is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. The funds from this grant partially funded the MV History Series at the library, which included the following programs:

The Wampanoag of Noepe (Martha’s Vineyard) – Tobias Vanderhoop, September 21 2006

Author Visit – Phyllis Meras, November 16 2006

“Tell A Story” – Leigh French, Day to be Determined in February 2007!

Library Puzzle

The puzzle idea was a hit!

The first puzzle has been completed, and we have put out a new puzzle for people to assemble! Come work your brain and enjoy the library!

Remember, the puzzle is in the downstairs seating section of the library except for on Wednesdays when we bring it to the morning Coffee Time program. See you soon!
