Oswayo Valley Memorial Library News

Oswayo Valley Memorial Library News

Are you tired of winter yet? Ready to think about summer activities? We’re already doing that here at the library. Plans are underway for summer reading, and this year we are going to add a summer reading program for adults! More details will be forthcoming.

The Oswayo Valley Memorial Library was one of 75 libraries nation-wide chosen to receive a grant for a four-part reading, viewing and discussion series for adults called “Pushing the Limits”. The series brings together books and video featuring authors, scientists and everyday people who thrive on exploring our world. The second program will take place on March 12th at 6:00 p.m. To register and receive a copy of the book we will be discussing, T.C. Boyle’s When the Killing’s Done, please stop by the library or call us at 697-6691. The 3rd session will meet on April 9th at 6:00 p.m. The book being discussed that night is The Land of Painted Caves by Jean Auel.

The library’s book discussion group is reading Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman. The group will meet for discussion on Wednesday, March 19th, at 1:30 p.m. We have plenty of copies available for anyone who would like to attend.

Make plans now to join us for a spaghetti dinner to benefit the Oswayo Valley Memorial Library on Saturday, March 29th, from 4:00-7:00 pm at the Oswayo Valley MS/HS cafeteria. Dinners are $5 each with take-outs available. There will be a gluten-free option available also!

The library will be sponsoring an Antiquities portrait fundraiser on Saturday, April 12th, and Sunday, April 13th, at the library. Sittings are $10 each with a free 10×13. This offer is limited to children up to age 16. Older children may be photographed with their younger siblings. To pay your $10 sitting fee and get your coupon for a free 10×13, stop by the library or see any board member.

The following ongoing monthly programming events are open to everyone. For more information, call the library at 814-697-6691.
