Community and Family Outreach Services

Blog Section: 

During a recent Delaware County District Library Outreach storytime children learned about our services in the community and helped paint pinecones to craft into flowers. 

These flowers were distributed to our patrons on the Bookmobile route at local assisted and independent living communities. We snapped pictures of the patrons receiving the flowers and brought them back to the next storytime to show the children. They were excited to see their painted pinecone flowers that one preschooler shouted “Cool!”

What is special about November 1st?

a.       The clocks “fell back” an hour overnight.  Do you know what time it is?

b.      On this day in 1982, Honda opened a plant in Marysville, Ohio, becoming the first Asian automobile company to produce cars in the USA.

They’re all true, but I’ll only write about c.

New Magazines from Zinio

Blog Section: 

Every year our librarians take a look at what magazines our patrons seem to be enjoying. We subscribe to more than 250 different magazines that cover a wide range of topics. But sometimes either by a lack of interest from our public or discontinued availability from a publisher, we no longer carry certain titles. This gives a great opportunity to add new titles to the collection that may fit a different need.
