You asked, and we listened! Many of you shared comments and feedback about wanting to manage holds on items. And so, we have a video to show you everything you can do with your holds: remove a hold, change pickup location, and even suspend a hold during time you are unavailable to pick it up.Add a comment

The videos walk you through searching, sorting results, placing holds, renewing items, and managing the new favorite authors and subjects lists.

As children we all love to hear our favorite nursery rhyme. The Pioneer Public Library presents a podcast on Mother Goose read by Susan Lura from Norman Children's. Your hometown library encourages you to start reading to your children at a very young age.
Growing Like A Read (better known as GLAR) is a project of the Pioneer Library System that promotes brain development for literacy skills in children from birth through age 4 through reading, talking, playing and singing. So sit back and enjoy 7 minutes of your favorite Mother Goose nursery rhymes. This podcast will be sure to bring back sweet childhood memories.

The Pioneer Library System has just completed its fifth Big Read. Thank you to everyone involved in supporting, promoting and implementing the many activities associated with this year’s Big Read: The Things They Carried
Author Tim O’Brien’s presentations at OBU in Shawnee on Wednesday night and at the Sam Noble Museum in Norman last night were attended and appreciated by capacity crowds. Long lines waited following the presentations to speak with the author and have their books signed.
We conduct our Big Read programs to encourage the reading of literature in Cleveland, McClain and Pottawatomie counties. We believe the reading of literature helps us to be better people and citizens – more understanding, more empathetic, more able to appreciate the complexity of issues, more willing to be involved. I can’t imagine a better message to convey the value of literature than that delivered by Tim O’Brien.
These presentations also provided an opportunity to celebrate the new Pioneer Library System Foundation. Grant writing and fund raising conducted through the Foundation made Tim O’Brien’s visit possible.
Long live books and public libraries and all they do to make our world a better place!
Anne Masters, Director
