A Note from the Library Director
November is Picture Book Month! What picture book from your childhood do you remember most vividly? Why are picture books important?
Did You Know?
The library will close at 6:00pm on Wednesday, November 21. We will be closed all day Thursday, November 22 for Thanksgiving. Friday, November 23 we will be open with normal business hours.
News You Can Use
Since their first trip in November of 2008, Stars and Stripes Honor Flight has taken thousands of WWII veterans and guardians on a one day trip to Washington D.C. Share their stories at the library.
Thankful & Grateful
In September we asked patrons why they think the library is incredible. The responses were heartwarming! November is a month of reflecting on what we are thankful for. The library is thankful for our patrons! You help us make this library an incredible place for all to visit!
Support Shout Out
The Oconomowoc Public Library Board and staff would like to thank the Oconomowoc Kiwanis Breakfast Club and Bridges Library System for their recent donations. These donations will help bring a Crisis Prevention Institute training to Oconomowoc.
