Limited donations welcome.

The Library is Open!
Monday-Friday 10-3
The library welcomes you back. You are encouraged to wait until you have been double-vaccinated +2 weeks to visit, wear your mask and maintain social distancing. You may bring back library materials you borrowed, puzzles, DVDs and wish list donations to a separate outside drop off area near the lawn bowling green. A cart will be set up only between 10-3, M-F. Do not bring these items with you into the library but come in afterwards. Signs will be posted directing you.

The library prides itself on providing a curated collection of best sellers, popular fiction and mystery authors, large print, selected non-fiction and a vast selection of DVDs.
Our “wish list” for Phase 3 donations is 2019-2021 titles – so many beloved authors published new titles and these would be most appreciated. Also accepted are pristine copies of popular works and classics to replace existing worn copies and to add to our collection. There is a need for newer copies of Hemingway, Jack London, Dickens, Austen and the Bronte. You have had a year to cull through your book collection, however, the library is not the solution for your discards.
We will NOT accept the following so don’t even think about it – Encyclopedias, dictionaries, old reference books, text books, sheet music, music tapes or CDs, self-help books, VHS or 8 Track tapes, damaged materials. Please contact local charities for items not meeting our donation guidelines.

The community’s cooperation is key to a successful reopening. Stay tuned via E-blasts for further details as they become available.
Consider volunteering – the library can always use the community’s help. Email: oakmontvillagelibrary@gmail.com

9/11 Memories and Exercise

Today we remember the day that shocked and shook the world with a painful look back. This is also a time to look ahead at how to mitigate lingering negative responses. Living in constant concern, anxiety and fear robs the good from each day. Deep breathing and reading comics may be ways to cope. Talking to a positive person might be another. And still a third: exercise.
