Welcome to the Dennis M. O'Connor Public Library

Emergency Preparedness Resources Available

We can't always stop disasters from happening, but we can get prepared.  The Dennis M. O'Connor Public Library has emergency preparedness resources available to help families prepare themselves and their households.

All resources are free of charge, and have been provided by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, through the Ready Or Not? campaign.  The following resources are available:

  • Emergency Waterproof Bag: 15 x 12 waterproof bag for holding important documents
  • Building Your Disaster Supply Kit Checklist (In English & Spanish): Checklist that helps families to build a disaster supply kit for evacuating or sheltering in place
  • Preparedness Activity Book (In English & Spanish):  Designed to challenge school-age children on how to get prepared for disasters. Activities such as Dot-To-Dot, Maze, Crossword and Word Search puzzles, and Word Games are included.

"ROCK & ROLL" ADULT & TEEN SUMMER READING CHALLENGE

    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 introducing an adult and teen summer reading challenge, "Rock & Roll".  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 in the challenge, simply pick up a reading log at the library, or download the log at the link below, or download from our Facebook page.  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 read in any particular order.  A single book can only be used for one category, not multiple categories.
