OXFORD – The Oxford Memorial Library is getting in full swing for the Holidays.

Now is the time to check your closets for those lost library books. For every overdue library book you bring back along with a non-perishable food item we will waive your fine on that overdues item (the book must be returned). So, between now and Saturday, December 11 bring All donated food items will go to our local food pantry to help local families in need.

Our Blink Charging Station is up and operating.

The station has two hook-ups to charge your electric car. The station is located at the far end of our parking lot next to the end of the Solar Panels. The charging station is solar powered. This service is free. We were able to attain this through a NYSERDA Grant.

There was a lot of excitement and enthusiasm for our Barn Quilt Craft workshop that we held on Saturday, November 6. There have been several requests for another one, even, so marker your calendars for Friday, December 3 at 3 p.m. Be sure to check out our webpage or Face Book page for more information about this Barn Quilt craft.
