Loud singing encouraged in Oliver Library

There will be no “shhhing” in the Oliver Library on Tuesday December 20. Instead, there will be the sound of joyful music. In fact, you might even see the librarians singing along to the harmonies of piano and saxophone. 

Join the Friends of the Library this Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 12 noon for a Christmas twist on their usual third-Tuesday coffee morning. Music, singing, and refreshments.  Carol sheets provided (see? there will be some reading at the library!)

Note: This is a great time to pick up some books to see you through the Christmas holidays when the library will be closed. Happy reading – and singing!

Friends of the Oliver Library

corb4440The Friends of the Oliver Library believe that libraries play an increasing social role in our communities.  Their goal is to enhance the available funding to make our library a place of great pride in Oliver.  They have raised money most years through a winter book sale and a summer paperback sale.  You can support the work of the FOTOL by taking part in the:

 Annual Used Book Sale
Saturday, July 4th 
Oliver Regional Library
Donations of paperback books welcome. 
Books can be dropped off at the Library until July 3rd

500201These book sale funds have been supplemented by soliciting donations from community organizations and the general public. Since their inception in May 1998, the Friends of the Library have directed more than $45,000 in funding towards creating an especially welcoming place for children, teens and seniors. They play an important role in stimulating the use of the library’s resources and services by the public.
