And that quickly it’s over! We hope you enjoyed our summer reading program here at the Oley Library! Thank you again to our sponsors: Tompkins VIST Bank, Mast Roofing & Construction, Inc., Bella Italia Pizza Restaurant, Ltl Consultants and Nia’s Ristorante Pizzeria for donating certificates for free slices of pizza all summer long!

We received some very old Oley Valley High school year books as donations at the library! You can find them in the reference section of the library. The oldest dating back to 1926. Stop in and take a look!

Thank you to all our volunteers who gave their time this weekend at the Peach Festival Book Sale! We couldn’t do it without you! 🍑

Lego Week

Join us in Building a Better World with legos! Be prepared for hands on fun and don’t forget to have your summer reading punch cards stamped and redeemed for fun prizes!
Scott Mengle, coach of the Lego team Bird Spa, was one of 32,000 teams that competed and one of 200 teams who went on to the World Lego Championships in St. Louis. Please check out the event page at http://www.17821.org
There will be a 5 minute challenge offered to make something creative and share with the group. Scott will also be available for children that are more interested in programming. He will teach children how Levi’s translate into robot programming. Some children will have the ability to create cars and creativity will be stressed. 
Robot programming will be discussed starting by having a volunteer blindfolded and having other children create a program to make that child move. 
This is a unique and educational program for summer reading! All ages welcome!

Who are the faces at your community library? On the right is one of our most dedicated patrons. Susan is a daily user of our computers and committed volunteer here at the OVCL. You’ll be sure to see Susan just about every single morning at 10 am to use our computers and print paper work. Susan is like many other locals in town who do not have computers or internet in their homes and come to the library on a regular basis. The other two short people are my youngest children who get to come to work with mom every day all summer long!

The Oley Valley Community Library will be taking donations of back to school supplies for children in need in the Oley Valley. Book bags, pencils, markers, glue, notebooks, or anything listed on the schools website per grade level as needed to start the school year. Please, only new items. Items can be dropped off at the library any time we are open, or placed in our drop box after hours. Thanks in advance for your support. Items will be delivered to the elementary school next Friday morning.

New releases for August!
