Closed on 11/11

The Oxford Library will be closed on Saturday November 11th in observance of Veterans Day. We will reopen on Monday November 13th as per usual. 

Please take a moment on Saturday to thank any veterans in your life and remember the many men and women who have served our country. 

Halloween Books are Back!

Nights are getting dark and chilly, trees are changing color, and ghosts are abundant. This can only mean one thing… it’s almost Halloween!

We have a seasonal cart full of spooky and fun Halloween books for the little ones (or big kids too, there’s no age limit on Halloween here). Come check out some scary stories or festive fall reads this month. 

The Great Give Back

We are excited to announce that our Crochet for Charity event is now a part of the state-wide Great Give Back initiative! On Saturday October 21st libraries all across New York State will be hosting events to give back to their communities. Join the cause and come give back at the Oxford Memorial Library. At the Crochet for Charity event, we will be making TwiddleMuffs to donate to nursing homes and care facilities for patients with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Banned Books Week 2023

Come and check out the awesome display Jess has put together for Banned Books Week this year! There is a lot of interesting information, and you may be surprised by some of the books people have tried to ban. For more information about Banned Books Week visit the Banned & Challenged Books website provided by the American Library Association.

Oxford Academy Year Books

Did you or someone you know graduate from Oxford since 1955? If you said yes, you’re in luck! Past yearbooks from 1955-2018 for Oxford Academy High School have been digitized and are now available on our website. You can find them by clicking on the “Oxford Academy Central School Yearbooks” tab at the top of the page (or here). Have fun looking back at old memories and getting a peek at what is has been like to be a student at Oxford Academy throughout the past 60 years!

Crochet for Charity

Our TwiddleMuffs will be donated to local nursing homes and care facilities. If you know someone who would benefit from having a TwiddleMuff you can donate yours directly to them. Although they don’t take too long to make, if you don’t finish you TwiddleMuff on the 21st you can bring the completed project back by October 28th for it to be donated. This also means you can make more than one to donate!
