Raspberry Pi is a credit card sized computer that is as powerful as your home computer. In addition to being a great way to learn to code and hack, Raspberry Pi is a cheap, versatile tool for making your own inventions and assisting in a variety of home electronic projects. Use it as a router or network monitoring node. Use Pi to create a game console, multi-room sound system, robot, or internet phone.
Make a family memory at the library—and leave the mess to us! The library supplies graham crackers and frosting for you to build gingerbread houses! Bring your own candies to accessorize and decorate the structure. Playclothes encouraged. Finished houses may be taken home or submitted to Youth Services for a cheery display.
Come to the library to take inspiration from the beautiful canvases and moving stories of the Together Oakwood Project. Paint and small canvases will be provided so you can express your response or tell your story of Oakwood positivity. Computers will also be made available if you prefer to express yourself in the written word. Selected canvases and text submissions will be added to the Together Oakwood Project—on display at the library for years to come.
2016 is proving to be a highly divisive year in national and local news. The Library is proud to be Open to All, a place of unity no matter what is going on in the wider world. This fall, we are reaching out to actively build unity through the Together Oakwood Project! The Library wants to hear from you about all that you love best about Oakwood—its heroes, its characters, its traditions, its goodness. What brings us together and makes us a better Oakwood? Let’s tell that story!
