We are back in session with Teen Tech this month, and we will be introducing our new Nikon digital camera. Participants will also have a chance to practice using our Cricut Maker, 3D pens, and 3D printer, all purchased through the Project Next Generation grant. This program is designed for children and teens of middle school age and up.
***Our Jan. 23rd, session was originally scheduled to have a demonstration of virtual reality by Revelation VR of Peru. We will still have Teen Tech that day, but the virtual reality presentation has been rescheduled for Feb. 5th.***

As cold weather approaches, remember the library is a warm place to hang out!
Come in, check out a stack of books to read at home, or curl up in one of our comfy chairs! We also have newspapers, board games, puzzles, and coloring pages.
We open at 10am every day except Sundays. We close at 5pm Mondays and Fridays, 8pm Tuesdays through Thursdays, and 4pm Saturdays. If the library is closing due to wintry weather, we will have it posted on our website and facebook page, and a sign on our door if possible.
If you can’t make it in, visit our eBook catalog and use your library card to check something out to read. You can read books on the Axis 360 app or even read them online!
If you must travel, check out Illinois Department of Transportation’s Winter Road Conditions website. You can see if roads you wish to travel are reported to be clear of ice and snow, covered with patches of ice and snow, or snow or ice covered.
The library has a monthly email newsletter about our events. It usually goes out on the first of the month. If you’re not getting it and you would like to, click the link below to sign up for the next one!
Bat naturalists, Dan and Sharon Peterson return to Oglesby Library on Tuesday, October 22, 2019, 6 – 7 PM with a program that will educate and entertain you with exciting facts about bat species!
Dan and Sharon’s presentation will allow you to see images of bats, hear their echolocation calls, and watch a short clip of bats eating a variety of foods. Along with bats of the world they will show slides of native species in Illinois and discuss the difficulties facing our natural bat species and what can be done to conserve them.
After the lecture, the performer will display live bats and other unique animals and answer questions.
