The Ola Library will be closed Friday, January 31, but will be OPEN Saturday, February 1st.

TAKEN FAR TOO SOON

As expected, Alan's farewell was well attended. The service was touching as stories were shared of Alan's love for his family, community, profession and the great outdoors. It is still hard to believe that he is gone, taken far too soon.

BOOK VIEWING AT THE OLA SCHOOL

Book Viewing at the Ola School

Come join the Ola School students for a viewing of the new Libri Foundation books on Friday afternoon at 1:45.  Last spring the Ola Library applied for and received a grant from the Foundation for this collection of over 100 hard-cover, children’s books.

The Libri Foundation is a nationwide, non-profit organization that donates new, quality children’s books to small, rural public libraries in the United States through its Books For Children Program.

The Foundation by matching funds raised by local organizations, enables a library to obtain children’s books it could not otherwise acquire due to budgetary constrains.  Local sponsors can contribute from $50 to $350, that the foundation matches at a 2 to 1 ratio.  The Ola Library and the Ola Ladies Club contributed $350, thus allowing the Library to choose $1050 worth of new, quality children’s books  from a list of 700 titles provided by the Foundation.

The books will also be on display through Saturday for anyone who’d like to come in on that day to see them.
