Now that the cold weather is upon us, many of our feathered
friends will be flying south. Join OCL in exploring the many ways
birds are important to us and also how we can help to protect
them. Learn a cool use for feathers, and create some special treats
to take home to your own backyard birds!

Ken Coleman, our invaluable Reference Librarian, has been
with the Orangeburg County Library since 1998. Ken’s favorite
part of his job is helping customers find books that the OCL
does not currently have in its
collection. He also enjoys hosting Ken’s Movie Madness each
month. Mr. Coleman is an aficionado of classic movies and is
filled with information about the backstories of these films.
Mr. Coleman was born in Greenville, SC and grew up in
Salisbury, NC. Before
working as a librarian,
he taught high school
for five years. If Ken
were not a librarian,
he would spend his
time listening to music,
watching movies,
learning more about
computer education, and getting some well earned shut-eye!
Currently Mr. Coleman is reading a collection of articles about
vaudeville and the fourth volume of Robert Caro’s biography of
Lyndon B. Johnson. Come visit Ken at the Information
Services Desk for all your reference needs or just to talk Wake
Forest sports!
