Author coming to OPL

We are excited that Ball State faculty member Cathy Day is coming to the Osgood Library.  Thursday, June 6 @ 6PM.  She will talk about her book, The Circus in Winter.  Her family had first hand knowledge of the circus while it wintered in Peru, IN.  Now the book has been made into a musical play.

Hope lots of people will join our Book Club and meet Cathy.   Should be fun.

Institute of Museum and Library Services Grant

The Osgood Public Library has five new computers for use by members of the public. These modern, up-to-date computers provide Internet access, word processing with templates for resumes and other commonly used documents, and access to databases such as INSPIRE and Ancestry Library Edition, along with much more. This project is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, administered by the Indiana State Library. While the computers were purchased by the library, funding for the software and hardware installation and networking integration were paid for through the grant funds.

The Institute of Museum and Library Services is the primary source of federal support for the nation's 123,000 libraries and 17,500 museums. Through grant making, policy development, and research, IMLS helps communities and individuals thrive through broad public access to knowledge, cultural heritage, and lifelong learning.
