The fun new website Goodreads was recently mentioned in a Martha’s Vineyard Times article by Susan Wilson. Goodreads is a place where people share their reading interests, and help each other find new reading material.
Visit the Oak Bluffs Public Library’s Goodreads Account, and search our virtual bookshelves to find new reading material.
We have created shelves for the library’s Book Discussion Group, the library staff’s reads, Travel and Adventure and there will be more shelves to come!
Post a comment and let us know what library shelves and reading lists you would like to see us create!
Helen Caldicott, author and peace activist, once said, “Teachers, I believe, are the most responsible and important members of society because their professional efforts affect the fate of the earth.”
In celebration of National Teachers Day, March 6, 2008, the staff of the Oak Bluffs Public Library thanks the teachers at the Oak Bluffs School for their dedication to excellence and their special efforts to mentor the future citizens of the Island Community.

Samplings of photographs taken by four students who attend The Rebecca Amos Institute are on display at the Oak Bluffs Public Library during the month of February.

We had a lot of fun making Valentines today. You can see some children and families busily working on their creations, and some holding up their beautifully finished Valentines. We had paper, ribbons, hearts, alphabet letters, sequins, glitter, crayons and more spread out on the tables. Look what wonderful Valentines these people made from the materials!
Corduroy’s last stop during his visit to the Island was Oak Bluffs! We had a great crowd of children singing welcome to Corduroy, hearing Corduroy’s stories and coloring pictures of him. Enjoy some of the photos of our cuties with Corduroy!
