Evergreen is proud to announce an expanded partnership with the Oshkosh Public Library.
Public can now pick up Oshkosh Public Library materials at Evergreen
An expanded partnership between the Oshkosh Public Library and Evergreen means more convenient library service for people who live, work and shop on the city’s west side.
Library users can now put books, DVDs and other items on hold via the library’s web site and pick them up at Evergreen’s library, inside the newly expanded Manor Building at 1130 N. Westfield St. Individuals will be notified by Oshkosh Public Library staff when their holds are ready for pickup at Evergreen.
“When we expanded and remodeled the Manor Building, we upgraded our library here,” explains Ken Arneson, President and CEO at Evergreen. “We’ve always wanted to enhance the library services available at Evergreen and by partnering with the Oshkosh Public Library, we can do that for our residents and for the general public.”
The library placed a drive-up book return in the parking lot at Evergreen’s Manor Building, 1130 N. Westfield St., in 2012. This additional option for returning library materials has made it more convenient for residents who want to use the library but don’t have time to come downtown on a regular basis. An average of 1,000 Oshkosh Public Library items are returned to the book return at Evergreen each month.
“We would like everyone to visit our downtown location, but we also understand the importance of making it convenient for people to fit the library into their busy lives,” says Jeff Gilderson-Duwe, Oshkosh Public Library Director. “The Evergreen partnership helps us to do that.”
For more than 45 years, Evergreen has provided extraordinary living options, programs and services to those ages 55 and older.
