As of early this morning, the Overdrive ebook, audio and video download service is once again up and working. All patrons with a current library card should be able to access, login and checkout e-materials from the Overdrive webpage . We appreciate your patience while the vendor's engineers were working to fix this technology glitch!

Service Notice: Overdrive Outage

12/15/15 1:00 pm  If you are an active user of the library's Overdrive ebook /audio/video download service, you will notice today that you are unable to log in. This problem is currently being experienced at many libraries and it has been reported to the Overdrive help desk. 

At this time we are asking users please, don't make repeated attempts to log in to Overdrive as this can interfere with troubleshooting efforts; as soon as we have an update we will post the information here and on the library's Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/BoscoLibrary. Thank you!

Annual Public Open House, Friday, Dec 11th from 10 to 5 pm

Come one, come all to the Boscobel Public Library's Annual Public Open House, Friday, Dec 11th from 10 to 5 pm during regular library hours. Curious to see the work that's been done in our building? We'll be giving tours. Like to solve puzzles? Join in a scavenger hunt, find the hidden snowflake or solve our library Mystery masquerade.

 Parents with children age one to pre-K can visit our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten display and try out an interactive early learning kit.  Also on display will be two 3-D printers. Watch us print a dinosaur with our Makerbot Mini! Both our 1KB4K program and  3D printers have been made available through a pair of  LSTA Grants from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services. Hear all about the other cool tech kits we'll be receiving in 2016 as part of our Makerspace grant, learn about what we've accomplished this year and what's planned for next, and enjoy holiday snacks and other refreshments.

We've once again set up our SAD Light Station to bring a bit of sunshine to folks who are missing the long sunny days of summer. SAD (seasonal affective disorder) lights are frequently used in cafe setting in far northern countries to help people cope with the winter blues and to feel more energized.

Holiday Hours: All city of Boscobel offices and the library will be closed Christmas Eve 12/24 and Christmas Day. From our library family to yours, we wish you and yours a joy-filled holiday season. For more information about library services or programs, please call or stop by the library, 608-375-5723
