Live Oak Public Libraries
January 2014

It seems unbelievable, but here we are in 2014!  Are making resolutions part of your New Year's tradition?  If so, the library has you covered.  Have you resolved to eat better?  Check out one of our 3,295 cook books - there really is something for every taste!  Perhaps your resolution is to learn a new language.  We have books, CDs and DVDs on how to learn many languages.  You can also check out our online resource, Rocket Languages.  It offers tailored learning in 10 languages plus American Sign Language.   


Make learning about all of the library's new resources such as free tutoring ( and free movie downloads (Hoopla Digital) be among your resolutions. All the information is on our website.


A great resolution is to simply take time and read more.  Did you know that you can keep up with the current bestsellers by checking lists like The New York Times, Publishers Weekly and the LA Times?  There are links  to 10 different bestseller lists in our catalog.  Maybe you've always wanted to learn how to knit or become more savvy with car repairs.  We've got 441 titles on knitting and 148 titles on working with cars.  We also have the Chilton's manuals online; just select the make, model and year of your car and you're set.  Our online Chilton's manuals go as far back as 1940!


Whether you made resolutions or not, I hope the library is part of your new year.    


Best wishes for 2014!

Kick off 2014 with us...


Join us for our Winter Literary Luncheon on Thursday, January 23rd, at 11:30 a.m. at the Hilton Savannah Desoto, 4 East Liberty Street, when we present Joyce Roch�, corporate trailblazer and author, as she discusses her deeply introspective book, "The Empress Has No Clothes: Conquering Self-Doubt to Embrace Success". In her deeply personal memoir, Ms. Roch� shares her lifelong struggle with the impostor syndrome and offers coping strategies based on her own experiences and those of other high-achieving leaders. Throughout her rise from humble circumstances to become a trailblazer in the corporate world for 25 years, she never felt deserving of her success until she learned to quiet the voice of self-doubt. Ms. Roch�'s book will be available for purchase at the luncheon and a portion of the sales proceeds will benefit Live Oak Public Libraries' programs and services. The author will sign her work at your request. Reservations are $50 per person. To make a reservation for this limited seating event, contact us by calling (912) 652-3605 or email Click here for more information.  


We are so appreciative for your support in 2013. It enabled us to fund, a powerful online tutoring resource for area students, and so much more. With your continued help, we look forward to bringing more exciting programs and services to our community this year. Give the gift of literacy - support our library system through this foundation.


Thank you!
