Orrville Public Library is much more than books on shelves, newspapers and magazines to browse through or movies to watch. The library also has a DIY area to preserve memories in a digital format. The library’s Memory Lab has equipment available to transfer 8mm movies, audio cassettes, photos, slides and more to digital. All equipment in this area was funded through donations and grants.

Check out the video on the library’s YouTube channel to learn more about the Memory Lab or call the library at 330-683-1065.

Children’s Crafternoon will take place Friday, May 13 to make a good luck star. This free program is for kids grades 2-6 at 2 p.m. Registration is required and can be done on the website calendar at www.orrville.lib.oh.us or by calling the children’s department.

Join Orrville Public Library and its May partner, the Orrville Area United Way, for a StoryWalk event on Saturday, May 14. A free craft will be provided from 10 a.m. to noon. The United Way also will have information on how to sign up for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. The StoryWalk is located east of the dog park and is accessible from the Rails-to-Trails bike path and walking trail. The featured book for May is “The Little Engine That Could” by Watty Piper.

StoryWalk is an educational activity that places a children’s book along a walking trail in the community. This project was created to help build children’s interest in reading while also encouraging healthy outdoor activity for all. The StoryWalk project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk is a registered service mark owned by Ferguson.
