Join us this Thursday to create your own decorative journal and learn how to bullet journal. This class will be offered twice, from 2-4 pm and repeated again from 6-8 pm.
You will be provided with a hardback journal and a kit of materials to construct a simple cloth cover that you can customize for your journal. Sewing machines will be provided, including those from the Library’s Things Collection.
Also near the end of the class, you will learn how to do bullet journaling. Bullet journaling was created by designer Ryder Carroll, and this type of journaling incorporates traits of the day planner, diary, and written reflections to help you focus on your personal and professional goals.
These classes are free and open to the public and will be held in the Library’s Meeting Room C. Class size is limited so registration is required. To register or for more information, please call the Local and Family History desk at 918-338-4167.

The Bartlesville Public Library would like to warmly thank the Bartlesville Rotary Club 2476 for their sponsorship of $350 to assist in the creation of a Digital Conversion Center. This equipment allows users to convert older personal media to new technology. For example, VHS tapes or camcorder tapes can be converted to DVD and cassette tapes and even vinyl records can be converted to CD or flashdrive.
The Digital Conversion Center is located in the Local & Family History room of the Library. This center is a self-service center and can be reserved in two-hour blocks. Library staff will provide basic instruction and the patron performs the conversions. The equipment does conversions in real time, so if you are converting a two-hour tape from one media to another it will take two hours to perform the conversion. Patrons using the technology should bring a CD, flashdrive, or DVD to load their converted files onto.
Users are also required to sign a release indemnifying the library should the media become damaged in the conversion process and agreeing to follow copyright laws. The center is available for library patron use at no charge during library hours. Call 918-338-4167 to make a reservation for the center; we love that we can help you preserve your memories!
