July 1st marks the first day of Summer Reading @ OBPL!
Come in and register now!

Prizes are awarded in three different levels:

Reduce (A lanyard for your library card!)
Reuse (A coupon to a local business for ice cream, hot dogs, and more!)
Recycle (This year’s Summer Reading t-shirt!)

In order to get prizes, all you have to do is read either 12 picture books,
or complete three hours of reading– it’s that simple. If you finish all three levels, keep on reading to be entered into a drawing to win even more prizes!
The drawing will take place once a week, and 5 lucky kids will be chosen at random.
The more you read, the more chances you have to win…

In Other News…

  • We have a new summer librarian! Her name is Sondra, be sure to introduce yourself next time you’re in!
  • BIG NEWS: We are now offering Crummy Weather Craft Time!, an option for you if you’re looking for something to do when you can’t be at the beach this summer. If it’s raining, drop into the program room in the Children’s department for music, games, puzzles, crafts, and-of course- books! We will be offering this throughout the months of July & August, so don’t forget about us when you’re rained in!
  • There are so many great events going on at the Oak Bluffs Public Library this summer, go to our calendar and start planning!
  • We just added new pictures to our Flickr page of all the great new displays and bulletin boards that have been added recently. If you’re curious, visit our photostream, or just stop by!

Thanks for reading, see you @ the OBPL!

No more rainy day blues

When the weather turns rainy and you can’t go to the beach, join us for CRUMMY WEATHER CRAFT DAYS in the Children’s Room. There will be crafts, music, board games, giant puzzles, and more. The special drop-in crafts will be available from July 1 through August 28 as long as it’s raining outside.
Don’t be sad to see the rain. Come to the library where the fun is.

No more book donations for the Friends book sale

The Friends of the Oak Bluffs Library are victims of their own success. They asked for used books and received an overwhelming response from our generous patrons and new friends. The July sale will be a big success thanks to all of you. No more donations please! The space is full!
