Welcome to the Dennis M. O'Connor Public Library

Summer Reading Program Registration Form (Please fill out and bring into library no later than June 24th)




Find a cozy nook, pull up a plush chair, and settle in with an ice cold glass of your favorite beverage-the Dennis M. O'Connor Public Library is offering an adult and teen summer reading challenge, "Take Me To Your Reader".  There are 26 book prompts to broaden your reading scope, revisit a favorite childhood book, or even teach yourself a new skill.  In addition, participants of this reading challenge are serving as a reading role model for younger children.  Research shows that kids who see adults around them reading read more themselves.

The reading challenge will begin June 1st and end Sept. 1st.  There are two age categories: Teen (7th thru 12th grade), and Adult.  To participate, simply pick up a reading log at the  library, or download the log below.  Reading logs must be turned in by Sept. 1st in order to be eligible for prizes.

Print books, audio books, and eBooks will count towards the challenge.  The books do not have to be read in any particular order.  A single book can only be used for one category, not multiple categories.



Did you know you can save money and help the environment by saving energy in your home?  You can learn about tips and techniques to save energy by attending one of the upcoming Energy Conservation Awareness Talks.  These sessions will are scheduled for Wednesday June 12th & June 26th at 2:30 p.m at the Dennis M. O'Connor Public Library.  Presenters from Texas A&M University-Kingsville will talk about energy efficiency and ways to conserve energy in homes and provide some easy to implement tips and techniques that any household can utilize with minimal effort.  Support for this program was provided by a grant from the Coastal Bend Community Foundation.  Pizza and soft drinks will be provided.
