Cool Summer Movies!!

 I know Summer Reading is over, but we here at Octavia Fields have decided to continue our weekly kids movie until school starts. So that means we have TWO more movie Thursdays!! On August 12 and August 19 at 2:30 we'll be showing great movies for the kids! So make sure you come and join us!!

Back To School!!

It's Back to School Time!! Help your kids to stay organized AND help the environment by stopping by and picking up one of our reusable book bags!  The Friends of the Library offer these sturdy bags for only $3.00 apiece! 3 different colors, so each child can have a library book bag for their own items- it makes keeping those school books and library books organized a much easier task!!

Game On!

Don't forget our Wii gaming program today at 2:00 pm in the meeting room! Tickets are required, but we'll take extras on a first come, first serve basis if there's  room! This program is for teens ages 13 - 18, so come on down and compete against your old friends and new ones!!


Join us for our first ever "Based on the Book.." movie!! We'll be presenting our first offering on Thursday, July 29, 2010 at 6 pm. This is an adult program. Check the circulation desk for details!!

Desperately Seeking Adult Paperbacks!

Again, we here at Octavia Fields would like to thank you for your generosity, and encourage you  to donate all those "beach reads" you're finished with to us! All donated books are sold at our used book sales, and the proceeds help support those children's programs you've come to know and love! So, help us continue to have quality programs for your kids, send us your used books!

Support the Summer Reading Program!

Hey! Don't know what to do with all those paperbacks you've already read? We are really in need of used paperback adult fictions books for our book sale. Remember, all proceeds from the Friends of the Library Booksale goes towards our Summer Reading program here at the library. You get a chance to clean out that corner, and our library kids get quality summer reading programs! It's a win-win situation!  You can also request a receipt for charitiable contributions!
