Additional Storytime Added

We have added an additional Preschool Storytime, aimed at children ages 3 to 5, on Thursdays at 3:00 pm. The first program will be January 5.

This program will duplicate the 10:00 am Preschool Storytime and will offer an entertaining lineup of children's stories and an animated short film, followed by a fun and easy craft project that children can make and take home.

Our storytimes don't require registration, but if you have any questions please call our Children's Department at 813-749-1179.

Overcoming Clutter workshop

Is "get organized" on your list of New Year's Resolutions?  We have a program that can help with that!
Overcoming Clutter Workshop
Thursday, January 5
6:30 pm-7:30 pm

Clutter can be paralyzing. Whether you’re surrounded by loose paper, dirty dishes, memorabilia, laundry, or any other form of clutter, it can negatively impact your health and your relationships with others.

This presentation will teach you effective techniques to become more organized, reduce stress, and have more time to do the things you enjoy!

Presented by Dani Brahm of Simply Refreshing Organizing Solutions. No registration needed.

Little Free Library #2

We're pleased to announce that our second Little Free Library has been installed at the Environmental Education Center at Mobbly Bayou Wilderness Preserve on Lafayette Boulevard. We'd especially like to thank our artists Janet Gurney and Library Assistant Nancy Verderosa.

A Little Free Library is a free book exchange where users are encouraged to "take a book, leave a book". Library staff will fill the library initially & check it periodically, but all are welcome to help make sure it's stocked.

The box was paid for by the Friends of the Oldsmar Library.  Our first Little Free Library is still in front of Cypress Forest Recreation Center, and you can see pictures of it here.
