UPDATE: The Ostrander Branch Library is open today (Wednesday, July 15), but is experiencing a loss in Internet connection. The branch is still able to help with your regular Library needs, but the public computers are unable to connect to the Internet. 


The Ostrander Branch Library has been closed for the remainder of the day, Tuesday, July 14, due to a loss in power. The Scioto Township History 101 program scheduled for tonight has also been canceled due to the power loss and inclement weather. 

We plan to re-open the branch tomorrow at its regular hours.

All who attended the Ostrander Branch Library’s June book group fully enjoyed reading & discussing Fannie Flagg’s The All-Girl Filling Station’s Last Reunion. Flagg’s humorous writing style blends well with the sharing of the history of the women pilots (WASPS) who flew for the armed forces during World War II. The group gave the book a score of 4.8 out of 5.

The Delaware County District Library’s 2014 Annual Report is now available at all Library locations, and I want to thank you, Delaware, for helping to make 2014 another banner year for us! Last year, you checked out more than 1.4 million items, including downloaded eBooks, DVD’s, audio books and adult, teen and children’s books. Of that total, nearly 70% of the items checked out were books—we’re clearly still very much in the book business.
