Osage City Library plans Valentine’s Day surprises for local seniors

The Osage City Library will be delivering some love to all the senior living centers for Valentine’s Day. Those who would like to participate can purchase or make homemade valentines, write a note, and sign them. The library’s goal is to make sure each resident receives at least five or six valentines each. Between 750 to 900 valentines are needed.

AARP will be back at the Osage City Library in March to provide tax assistance to anyone free of charge, with a focus on taxpayers who are older than 50 and have low to moderate income. Sign up will begin Feb. 13, 2023.

Of interest to adult patrons: The library has monthly adult bingo and adult book club.

During the library’s after school program, 1,892 snacks were given to children, 18 years and younger, in the first semester of the school year. This is an increase of almost 480 from the same time span in 2021. Each snack is individually wrapped and the library provides a variety of choices. This program is supported from monetary donations as well as snack donations, and has been providing snacks after school for over four years. The library has also received a grant from Catholic Charities to purchase fresh fruit and vegetables to offer the youths who attend an after school program. After school activities are on Tuesdays and Thursdays for local youth. Lego Club is the second Wednesday of each month.
