The south entrance to the Troy library is closed for renovation of that area through October. The north entrance to the parking lot will be available during this time. On average, 7,982 people have come through the library doors each month this year. While the south doors (on West Main Street) are not currently accessible the north doors are still open. We realize this could be inconvenient for some people who use the south doors, however closing an exit was a better option than closing the library while work is done.
"All of us at INFOhio are excited to say that Book Nook (booknook.infohio.org) is now live"!
Book Nook is a site devoted to student-created book trailers. It gives students a place to share the books they are reading and learn about the books other students across Ohio are enjoying.
What's more, Book Nook is ready for new submissions! The site is open to all Ohio K-12 students. Check out the guidelines and rubric for submission. Then when the book trailer is finished, just complete the short submission form. The Book Nook team will review the content within five days. Students can submit their work, or teachers and librarians can submit on behalf of students, but the book trailer needs to be done by kids for kids.
