Have you heard the term Readers’ Advisory? Our newest librarian Nancy describes it as the library’s “matchmaking service,” connecting people with the materials that interest them. She joined OPL’s Second Floor staff earlier this year and is here to help you find your next great book.
Community Engagement Librarian Sandy brings the library’s services to you. If you’d like a library card, need to renew your card, have questions about the library, or would like to make suggestions on how the library can serve you better, Sandy can help. She’s at the following locations in April:
May 8 Empire Strikes Back (prior to the film’s showing at 7 p.m.)
Sandy also shares the library’s offerings via Zoom or onsite at your company or organization. She hosts several different short programs (including time for questions) to help your employees take advantage of the library’s free offerings. Call (920) 236-5206 for more information.
