OAK HILL — Virtual Contests and Social Media Challenges begin at the Oak Hill Public Library for National Library Week set for April 4-10. This year’s theme is "welcome to your library."
"While the library’s physical spaces may be temporarily closed due to COVID-19, we provide curbside service by making copies, sending faxes, providing book requests, DVD’s, Hot-spots and free interlibrary loan material for items that we may not have in our library," explained Oak Hill Public Library Director Peggy Johnson. "The public can discover eBooks, movies, research databases, online programs for kids and adults, and much more—all from the safety of their home."
Johnson added, "The library provides free books in our outside book box located in front of the Library. We also provide free WIFI 24/7."
