Author/Illustrator Events from the Library!

We are so excited to announce the upcoming visits to OCS:

*Friday, September 20, for grades 1st-5th, Illustrator Linda Kukuk will be here to introduce her book "Wilma's Way Home".

*Tuesday, October 1st, for grades 3rd-5th, author Susan Fletcher will visit to promote her book, "Journey of the Pale Bear" - one of this year's Sequoyah Book award nominees.

Book orders went home in Tuesday folders and are also available from our Library. A signed book is a lovely way to save a memory of a special day. A portion of the sales also goes to bless our Library!

Cool Dads

Box Tops

Do you have a baggie of box tops that you saved over the summer? If so, then please send them in marked either OSU or OU! We will be continuing our Bedlam Box Tops Challenge tradition this fall and can't wait to see whether we will be wearing ORANGE or CRIMSON at the end of November! Please keep clipping those tops and stay tuned for more information about our Box Tops Program!
