Patron Appreciation Week - April 15 through 20

In honor of National Library Week, the Osceola Public Library will be celebrating Patron Appreciation Week April 15 - 20.

Libraries are the heart of every community, and the Osceola Public Library is thankful for the wonderful patrons who daily visit the library. This is a special week to honor those patrons. Library patrons don't just check out books, they come for meetings, book discussions, story hour, crafts, classes , technology assistance and sometimes just to visit with the staff. In honor of National Library Week, the library staff would like to take the opportunity to thank all of those great patrons. Everyone is invited to stop by the library to share in the week of activities.


Kids and adults may enter daily for a drawing to win a book certificate or a mug/tumbler. The drawing will be held on Saturday, April 20.

If you have a fine on your account, stop by the library and pick up a coupon to redeem for library fines.
