New Great Courses Available
As many of you know, Oradell Public Library has a fine collection of The Great Courses on DVD sets with accompanying booklets on a wide array of fascinating topics. Although this is a very popular resource, we have not built up this collection over the past few years, since we do not have the budget for such special materials.
Thanks to many generous donations in memory of Harriet Kalemkerian, a former Desk Assistant at Oradell Public Library, we have been able to acquire at very low sale prices a number of other DVD sets in the Great Courses series.
Please come in and check out these new offerings. We are also considering starting a discussion program series based on the Great Courses topics, if there is interest.
Play with our ActivTable
Visit the Junior Room to play with our new Promethean ActivTable. This table, made possible thanks to the Oradell Library Foundation's School of Fish fundraiser, is a collaborative touchscreen learning table that allows up to six students to play and create a whole variety of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) educational games and activities.
Large Display Case
Scottish Dance Paintings
On display in the large display case from November through December 2015 is the art exhibit "Scottish Dance Paintings" by the artist Jane Sharp.
Small Display Case
The Sinatra Legend at 100
In conjunction with the book talk and signing by Richard Muti on Monday, November 30, 2015 at 7 p. m. for his recent book Cent’ Anni: The Sinatra Legend at 100, covering the life and legacy of singer and actor Frank Sinatra, the small display case has added information on the book through November 2015.
