Oakwood Recommends seeks to spotlight local citizens and groups by featuring their favorite books, audiobooks, films, music, magazines and games chosen from Wright Memorial Public Library's collection. This month we are highlighting Oakwood’s elected officials in this display from late October through early November. Come check out what Oakwood Recommends!
Wright Memorial Public Library will be at Oakwood High School this week to celebrate Teen Read Week, Turn Dreams into Reality. Look for us in the Library Media Center where we will be hosting activities during lunch.
- Write one of your dreams (or nightmares) on a slip of paper for the dream jar.
- Check out a book on dreams, realistic fiction, or motivational nonfiction from the display.
- Take a #Shelfie (selfie in front of a shelf of favorite books) and mention @OHS_Books on Twitter.
On Wednesday, October 15th make a dream catcher and play some trivia. On Thursday, October 16th play giant Scrabble on the front lawn (rain location, West Gym).
Participate in any activity, and get entered into a drawing for one of several prizes!
