This is National Library Week, which has been observed by libraries across the country every April since 1958. Libraries work to create an equitable society by providing free access to accurate information to all people. Now is the time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and library workers and to promote library use and support. On April 6th, the Bartlesville City Council made an official proclamation in support of National Library Week. Read it here:

Great news for Oklahomans needing financial advice! Typically, we order physical Financial Fitness Kits from the Oklahoma Society of Certified Public Accountants but printing is postponed due to COVID-19 and libraries being closed, but luckily they are providing downloadable copies!

Bartlesville Public Library – Serving our community with excellence!
Both classes are currently full. Here is a reminder for those who have registered. We look forward to seeing you there!
Last month, Bartlesville Public Library started a new adulting program series called #lifehacks. Even though the series has started, those interested can still join at any time. This twelve monthly program series, tailored for young adults ages 16-23 years old, will provide basic skills and hacks on how to best handle everyday situations that adults commonly face, e.g. budgeting household expenses. Each program will also include a cooking segment instructed by Chef Tara Burkhead of Tri County Tech. Each program acts as a stand-alone class that cumulates into a “graduation” at the end of the series.
In the February #lifehacks cooking segment, Tara Burkhead will demonstrate how to take hamburger and chicken helper to the next level and how to roast vegetables. Afterwards, Sgt. Daniel Elkins of the Criminal Investigation Division of the City of Bartlesville Police Department will talk about personal safety, both online and self-defense. This class will be held on February 27 from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm.
All the classes in the #lifehacks series are free and will be held in the Library’s Meeting Room A. Walk-ins are welcome, but registration is preferred. To register or for more information, call the Reference desk at 918-338-4168.
The #lifehacks program series is made possible by a community grant from Phillips 66.
Learn about different scrapbooking techniques and tips and share with others. You can try something new or work on your own projects. There is something new to learn and try at each club meeting. Basic supplies will be available, but you are also welcome to bring your own.
This club is free and open to both beginners and experienced crafters alike. For more information, please call the Local and Family History desk at 918-338-4167.
