We appreciate your book donations, but due to heavy voter turnout and safety concerns, we've had to remove the collection bin. Please wait until after the election to bring in your book donations. Thanks!

Early voting begins Monday 17 October (see 1 October post for schedule). The library will see an increase in traffic. Some voters may not be familiar with Ocee. Others may be distracted or in a hurry. Take extra care in the parking lot and please keep both eyes on your children.
