2021 OHPL Book Challenge

Are you up for a new reading adventure? Sign up for our 2021 Book Challenge and find out what's out there besides the bestsellers. Every month we will pick a book - first in a series, a microhistory, something foreign translated to English, something you may have read way back in high school, or something else.

We Need Some Fun!

Starting November 28th, please send us pictures of you in your UGLY Christmas Sweater! And, watch for our latest installment of adventures in the library on Facebook and YouTube - "Disfunctional Zoom Holiday" premiers December 7 and "Twas the Night Before Christmas at the Oak Harbor Public Library" drops December 21.
