What's Happening @ Your Library?


The Right Service at the Right Time

If you have a need RIGHT now, the Library can help you find the RIGHT SERVICE. The Okaloosa County Public Library Cooperative presents the RIGHT SERVICE at the RIGHT TIME for residents looking for assistance.

Featured Electronic Resource

Ask a Librarian is a free online service that allows Florida residents to chat or text with a librarian for immediate assistance from 10am until midnight ET Sunday thru Thursday and from 10am until 5pm ET Friday and Saturday. A trained information professional can guide you to the answers you need in minutes rather than your wasting hours navigating hundreds of unhelpful and irrelevant web sites. More than 100 libraries statewide collaborate to provide this service to their patrons and the patrons of other participating libraries. In addition, you can also email your local library's staff.

AARP Drivers Safety Course

Located in the Niceville Community Center Classroom (Next door to Library) on Wed., August 20 and Thur., August 21 at 8:30 am - 11:30 am. The cost is $12.00 per person for AARP members or $14.00 for non-members. Please make your checks out to AARP. Space is limited. Sign up at the Reference Desk or if you have questions call Lora Glass at 279-4863 ext. 1504. See flyer for more details.

Read to Baci

Baci, a Bichon Frise therapy dog, loves a good book! If you are age 7 or older and would like to read a story to Baci, join him Wednesday. Baci also is willing to sit with you while his owner, Ms. Cahill, reads a special book. This is a first come, first served program. You may bring a book or choose from the library collection. Baci will be here on Wednesday, August 13 @ 2:00 pm.

Reading Education Assistance Dogs

Reading is a wonderful opportunity for a child to build his or her imagination and begin to build skills for his or her future. Libraries are a wonderful resource, and Therapy Dogs can be a great way to help children discover how much fun their local library can be. This program encourages children to read by providing a non-judgmental listener and a furry friend to read to that will lie next to them and enjoy the story being read to them. This is a great way to promote reading in a positive way. Over time your child's reading ability and confidence can improve, which will make them enjoy reading even more. Registration is required. Please sign up in YS program room.
Saturday, August 2 & 16 from 10:00am - Noon
Tuesday, August 5, 12, 19 & 26 from 4 - 6 pm
