Welcome to the Bandon Public Library on the beautiful Oregon coast.
Spring is an active time on the southern Oregon Coast. Baseball, Gardens, Fishing, Fixing up your yard and home. Check out the wonderful Books and DVD’s on those subjects.
Upcoming programs Jane Kirkpatrick the famous Oregon author will be at the Bandon High School Thursday May 21, 2015 at 1:15 P.M. sponsored by the Friends of the Bandon Library. She will speak for about 45 minutes, answer questions and sign books. Her featured book will be A Light in the Wilderness and the Bandon Public Library has several copies including 1 large print. Have you noticed the new Large Print books? How about the new Books on CD (probably the most popular new item)? Books on CD have proven to increase reading and listening skills, raise grade levels, and even improve the command of the English language. University of Memphis professor Arthur Graesser says that “The half-life for listening is much longer than for reading”.
Did you know that watching DVD’s with closed captioning on also increases language skills? Closed captioning is great for non-English speakers, hearing impaired and children. Speaking of languages, check out our Coastline Libraries website Mango is a great way to learn a new language and is free using your Library card.
