Don’t forget about the Summer Food program!

Posted by blair on

Again this summer the OCPL and SDOC food services team up to bring a free, nutritious lunch for kids 18 and under. Lunches will be served every weekday at all library locations (at Salem it’s in the picnic shelter near Town Hall) from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m., and a snack will be provided from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. This will run June 3-August 2, with no lunches served the week of July 4 (July 1-5).

NEW: The Salem site will serve on M-Th from 11:30-12:30, and on Friday from 11:00 to 12:00. Location is the picnic shelter near Town Hall.

Harry Potter-themed Sock Drive a big hit!

Posted by blair on

The Oconee County Public Library was blown away with the generous support shown by the community for our Dobby Sock Drive. With your help, we collected over 1,170 pairs of socks! Wow! These socks have been distributed to Collins Children’s Home, Safe Harbor, Lakeview Assisted Living, and Our Daily Rest. Thank you to everyone who contributed!

Inclement weather operations

The Library generally follows the county’s inclement weather closings. If Oconee County government offices are closed for weather, the libraries will be also. Announcements about closings are made here on the website, and on the OCPL Facebook page.

3-D printers, telescopes, and more. Oh, my!

Posted by blair on

Did you know the OCPL now has a 3-D printer YOU can use? That’s right! The library now has a 3-D printer patrons can use to make their own creations. There are some restrictions and a cost involved. See the “Tech” link at the top of the homepage for more information about the 3-D printer, as well as telescopes that can be checked out by patrons and taken home!
