All about Farm Animals
Monthly via Facebook, Instagram, and otsegolibrary.org
The library is very fortunate to have a director who also has a hobby farm! In these fun videos, Andrea will focus on different farm animals each month explaining how to care for them and some fun facts about the animals. Some of the animals that will be featured are chickens, pigs, goats, llamas, cows, and more!
Book Packs To Go
Would you like a library staff member to pick out books for you or your child?
You can list your interests or genre’s you prefer and a staff member will choose up to 10 books that they feel you will enjoy. Do you like a certain genre or want to learn more about a certain subject? Staff member(s) will choose books to match that subject. The library will put them on hold for you to be able to pick up at our Drive-Thru Pickup Window. Click HERE to get your book pack started!
Rising Reader Activity Kits
We are VERY excited to announce a new upcoming collection at ODL: Rising Reader Activity Kits! These are packs families will be able to check out that have phonics sets of books, games, flashcards, puzzles, and reading activities in them to help kids learn to read/improve their reading skills! The kits are based on the areas of vocabulary, phonics, comprehension, fluency, and phonemic awareness and are full of fun activities for families to do together. There will be multiple kits for preschool through third grade! Rising Reader Kits require parental supervision and are not for children under 3 due to choking hazards in some of the game pieces. These kits were brought to us by the generous memorial donation of Albert Hoekstra.
The library staff is busy preparing and cataloging the kits for use! Watch Facebook for the announcement that these kits are out on the library shelves ready for your family to use to work on your reading skills at home!
