We recently put in a few study nooks near the Local & Family History room. You can plug in your laptop or tablet and get right to work, or just kick up your feet and read a book with some excellent lighting. Enjoy!
These study nooks were purchased with grant funding from ConocoPhillips.
Hey BPL patrons! We are excited to begin creating a “things collection” and we need your input. What is a things collection? A things collection is an assortment of items that you can borrow from us. These would be items that you would like to try out or may only need once in a while. Some examples include special cookware, tools, a sewing machine, shredder, musical instrument or a telescope. Please let us know what you would be interested in borrowing by completing the short 5 question survey linked below. Thank you!
The Newbery Award celebrates its 95th year in 2017. It is an annual and national award honoring the finest literary work for young people published in the U.S. by a U.S. author in the previous year. A prestigious committee reviews and chooses the medal winner and other honor books. BPL has maintained the Newbery collection throughout these 95 years. This October, the books are gathered in the center display in the library. These books are a reflection of the national journey as well as the literary journey of 95 years. They represent and reflect the times, the people, and the attitudes of this journey. There are books here which seemed appropriate, even at the forefront when published. However, in 2017, we see they reveal years of racial and economic stereotypes we now understand to be outdated and in error. In this context, it is appropriate to use the Newbery journey as a teaching tool, and to promote children’s literature—fiction and nonfiction; prose and poetry—on a continuing basis.
Kids 9 and under, come to the library for LEGO games, giveaways, & goodies! This is a free event, but we’d appreciate your pre-registration at 918-338-4170 or firstname.lastname@example.org . Please give us your name, age, & phone/email.
