Free, but your donations help the library rock this summer!

Happy Summer Reading!

Reminder about our summer technology and program rules at the library:

Youth ages 17 and under may use the library’s computers with signed permission form from their parent/guardian. There is a one hour time limit for computer use, and youth must sign in at the circulation desk. We also have sign in sheets for our iPads and Wii, with a one hour time limit on each. Youth may read to earn extra time on the technology.

If your child is at the library during a program, they are expected to participate in the program. Waiting outside on the sidewalk until the program is over will not be allowed.

Lafayette Symphony Orchestra Cushion Concert

Violinist Karen Isaacs of the Lafayette Symphony Orchestra will be performing at the Otterbein Public Library on Monday, June 4 at 1pm!

From the website:
The LSO’s Cushion Concerts are interactive, kid-friendly performances in your library, recreational center, or daycare. For these events, an LSO musician shares music with your youngest library patrons, engaging them with creative stories, music history, explanations of instrument physics, or examples of music from around the world. Each Cushion Concert is unique. Learn about the harp, the violin, the horn, instruments of the percussion section, and more in a program designed just for you.
