Policies and Procedures

This beautiful baby blanket was made by Theda Bowers ( our library aide) and the hat and booties were made by Sandy Andrews. Thanks to their hard work they were able to donate these to the new Mom and Dad who had a handsome baby boy at St. Luke’s Hospital. These ladies have donated blankets, hats and booties to multiple hospitals.

Congratulations to you both on birth of your son!

We are very proud of patrons and staff who all make several donations to the Oriskany Public Library!
