Time for an update on our North Oak book clubs. The North Oak Branch hosts a book club on the third Wednesday of every month. This is led by Jennifer from our staff. Feel free to call or stop by for information. The North Oak Branch also offers support for our community book groups. Two years ago, I had three clubs using our branch as their resource for their club‘s books. Today our branch is helping fifteen groups on a regular or occasional basis.
When you come in to the North Oak Branch, you will notice right away that we have a new look. Our new circulation desk has finally arrived! It has very nice looking wood detail work and a solid-surface top. There are three work stations and a book return slot on the left side as you walk through the front doors.
We also moved the circulation desk forward closer to the entry door, so we'll be able to give you a warm welcome as you walk in. Come on in and check it out--our new look is more open, inviting, and modern for today's library users!
Inspirational author Leisha Kelly and her 16-year-old son, Justice, were killed in a three-car accident on January 25, 2011. Leisha published her first novel, Julia’s Hope, in 2002. Since then, she has published 10 more novels.
Above is an image of an old advertising flyer from International Harvester dated 1909. It encourages people to get on the band wagon, and become dealers for new IH engines for farms and implements. They are advertised as designed especially for farm purposes, and they are durable. The add promises big profits for people who will become local dealers.
