While the Oak Hill Public Library’s physical spaces may be temporarily closed due to COVID-19, Director Peggy Johnson says the site continues to provide curbside service by making copies, sending faxes, providing book requests, DVD’s, WiFi hotspots and free interlibrary loan material for items that may not be on-hand at the library.  

“The public can discover eBooks, movies, research databases, online programs for kids and adults, and much more—all from the safety of their home,” Johnson said in a recent press release. “The library provides free books in our outside book box located in front of the library. We also provide free WiFi 24/7.”

Social media challenges are as follows for National Library Week:

To be entered to win, social media followers can complete each activity as many times as they wish each day and share photos with the library. More entries equate to more chances to win. A special prize will be given to the best photo.

Take-and-Make Crafts – Parents can pick up a craft to take home and make with little ones.

 Theatrical Character Contest – Dress up you or your family/household as your favorite character or scene from a book and share a picture with the library. Please send in a message to Peggy Johnson, Library Director, and pictures will be shared on the Oak Hill Public Library Facebook page. 

Other activities include:

* Submitting a picture of you reading to your favorite pet.

“In times of crisis, libraries respond to their community’s needs in innovative and inspiring ways,” Johnson stated. “Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, libraries are continuing to make a difference in all communities. Thank you for being patient during this time of crisis and we hope to see you at the Library, curbside.”
