The Delaware County District Library is pleased to announce the grand re-opening of the Ostrander Branch Library. Saturday, November 16 from 2 - 4 PM, the Library will be hosting a community open house to show off recent renovations to the branch.
The open house will include self-guided tours where visitors can explore the newly updated areas of the library at their leisure. DCDL staff will be on hand to provide visitors with information on the building, discuss services and programs offered by the Library, and sign new patrons up for a library card. Light refreshments will also be provided throughout the opening.
The Ostrander Branch Library, located at 75 North Fourth Street, is approximately 3,500 square feet and opened to the public in 1991. The renovated branch now boasts fresh paint, new carpet, updated technology, as well as several improved quiet study spaces. Book shelves and furniture were also moved into new arrangements for an overall improved patron experience and functionality. Lastly, a small business center with a fax machine, copier, and tables and chairs were added to benefit visitors.
The Ostrander Branch Library will be open for business the day of the open house and patrons may check out books and other materials on this day. Library hours are from 10 AM - 4 PM on Saturday.
The building was funded through notes that were sold to build and equip the Orange and Powell branches after Delaware County voters approved a 10 year, 1-mill operating levy in May 2009.
