Find Pokémon at DCDL

Blog Section: 

We are certainly living in a mobile world. If you haven’t heard lately, something phenomenal happened in America on July 6 called Pokémon GO. The mobile app uses location-based augmented reality technology. It encourages users to interact with the world around them through the eyes of their mobile devices as they try to catch and collect Pokémon species and other necessary Pokémon-catching tools.

Go Go Ostrander Gadget Lab!

Blog Section: 

Ever wonder what is inside a phone, CD player, stereo, or any other electronic device? Ostrander Branch Library’s Book Bunch kids got to find out.  With screw drivers and curiosity we disassembled all of the above and more.  It was fascinating and fun to see the inner workings of the electronics we use every day.

After School Book Bunch will reconvene in the Fall.  Summer Book Bunch begins Wednesday June 1st at 2pm.  Join us for, “Safety First” presented by the Delaware County Sherriff Department. 


Fairy Gardens take shape at Powell Branch Library

Blog Section: 

This past Friday, we enjoyed the beautiful day by getting together outside to create fairy gardens. Kids had a variety of decorating items to choose from including miniature fairies, play mushrooms, glitter, bells, and ribbons. They used these supplies to create their own decorative gardens for their fairy friends. We then poured in some soil and planted some seeds to grow out of our gardens. Check out their hard work in the pictures featured below! If you are interested in doing this program, but couldn't make it, don't worry! We will be offering this program again in early Fall.

Thank you Dr. Seuss for all you have done, for making reading a pleasure and learning so fun.

On March 1, Ostrander Branch celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Crafts were created, cupcakes were consumed and games were played.  We had a great time.  Join us April 5 at 6:30 PM for our Box It! Family Night. If you can imagine it, build it with boxes.
