Notice to Taxpayers


Notice is hereby given to the taxpayers of the library known as Otterbein Public Library (the “Library”) that the Board of Trustees (the “Board”) will meet at _23 E. 1st St. _, Otterbein, Indiana, at the hour of _6:00__ p.m. (Eastern Standard Time) on October 12, 2021, to consider the following additional appropriation of the bonds which the Board has determined to issue.  The Board considers such additional appropriation necessary to meet the need existing at this time:

An appropriation in the amount of $1,370,000 and all premium and investment earnings thereon on account of the renovation of and improvements to the Library, including the construction of an addition and purchase of real estate, equipment and technology, including the incidental expenses necessary to be incurred in connection with said project.  The funds to meet such additional appropriation are to be provided by the sale of real estate to the Otterbein Public Library Building Corporation.

The foregoing appropriation is in addition to all appropriations provided for in the existing budget and tax levy, and a need for such appropriation exists by reason of the inadequacy of the present buildings to provide necessary library facilities in the Library.

Taxpayers of said Library appearing at said meeting shall have the right to be heard in respect to said additional appropriation.

Dated this 8th day of September, 2021.

Storytimes for September 14th

Ages 0-3 can join us for songs, nursery rhymes, and craft at 10:30am before the library opens.
Mother Goose on the Loose (MGOL) is an award-winning early-literacy program for children from birth to age 3 with their parents or caregivers.

Ages 3-6 can join us for books, music, and STEAM activities at 11:15am, right after MGOL.
This 30-minute program focuses on early literacy and language, active listening, and critical thinking skills. We’ll read picture books, talk about what’s happening in the story and the pictures, and predict what will happen next. We’ll discuss letters, the sounds they make, and words that start with those sounds. We’ll practice sitting quietly and listening to the story, and taking turns to answer questions. We’ll experiment with science, technology, engineering, art, and math.

This week we will learn all about the Letter P. Talk like a Pirate Day is on Sunday, September 19th so we will be having a Pirate themed story time. We will enjoy some great pirate books such as Pirate Jack Gets Dressed by Nancy Raines Day and How to be a Pirate by Sue Fliess. We also have a great feltboard activity with Pirate Pete!
