The Heart of the Library

By - Systems Librarian February 14th, 2017

Adapted from Library Poem by Julia Donaldson:

Everyone is welcome to walk through the door.
It really doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor.
There are books in boxes and books on shelves.
They’re free for you to borrow, so help yourselves.

The librarian’s a friend who loves to lend,
So see if there’s a book that she can recommend.
Read that book, and if you’re bitten
You can borrow all the other ones the author’s written.

We love our patrons, yes we do,
And are grateful that you love us too.

Happy Valentine’s Day from Ohrstrom Library!

Ohrstrom Library Asks: Will You Be Mine? With (S)PS I Love You

By - Systems Librarian February 11th, 2010

This Sunday evening, February 14th, Ohrstrom Library will host a very special event: (S)PS I Love You: A Musical Valentine from Ohrstrom Library.

Beginning at 7:30 PM (sharp!) in the Baker Reading Room, Ohrstrom Library will present the SPS community with a living, breathing, singing, acting, musical Valentine’s Day card in the form of collaborative performances by many of St. Paul’s School’s biggest talents.  The evening’s program will include appearances by all of the a cappella groups, many student actors and actresses, a rock band, a jazz quartet and Madrigals. The evening will also feature many students and a few faculty members reading memorable lines, both very funny and poignant, from Hollywood films. Other contributors will read love poems, song lyrics and a few short theatrical pieces.

Please arrive early to secure your spot, since seating will be limited.  Do not miss this outpouring of love to the SPS community from Ohrstrom Library.
