Art of Design 9/21/2017

dan house POLAROID

On Thurs., Sept. 21, 5:30 – 6:15 PM, artist Dan Laib is coming to Oglesby Library to do an entertaining and interactive kids presentation about art and design.

You’ll learn about the basic elements of design from stories, hand-painted puppets, magic, and live art demonstrations in a fun and entertaining way. At the conclusion of the show, you will step right into a popular fairy tale centered around design and be able to observe it firsthand.

This show is designed to be lots of fun and is sure to entertain, inform, and inspire you to greater creativity!

This program is supported by a grant from OmniArts.

2017 Eclipse Event

The colander's shadow works 20170821

The eclipse event was a big hit here on August 21, 2017. The weather looked like it was not going to cooperate with cloudy skies and even RAIN, but we watched NASA’s feed indoors until the rain stopped and we could watch the solar eclipse outdoors.

We had Oreos (because you can make your own picture of the eclipse with them) and popcorn (because we like popcorn).

Catalog problems 6/27/2017

If you were trying to access the library’s online catalog today with no results, here are some details.

We found out that you could see search results if you are logged in but not if you were not logged in.

PrairieCat tech support was working on it with our catalog host company, and they got a temporary fix by using yesterday’s data. It might break again tomorrow… but they are working on making sure the data is fixed.

Call the library if you need help logging in or to request a book!

ALSO: some people are now having issues with connecting to eRead Illinois. Again, tech support is working on fixing it.

We are sorry for the inconvenience.
