National Library Week - April 8 through 14

A list of events that are occurring the week of National Library Week.

Celebrate National Library Week at the Osceola Public Library, April 8 - 14, 2012.
We have something special going on every day - 6 big days of fun!



Kids and adults, vote for your favorite author! We will have slips out  beginning Monday, April 9, for adults upstairs and children downstairs. Simply write down your favorite author, and put the slip in the bucket. We will draw names among the votes and award two gift certificates to adults and two gift certificates to children who vote. Winning authors will be announced Saturday, April 14.

In the evening, Iowa author, Larry Stone, will be presenting "Gladys Black: Legacy of Iowa's Bird Lady", paying tribute to the late Gladys Black and her passion for birds, education, and conservation. This presentation is based on the book co-authored with Jon Stravers and is made possible by Humanities Iowa.
