September Grab-N-Go

Each month, the librarians will create a Grab-N-Go kit with a new theme. These kits are created with young children in mind and are a great family activity. A themed book can be included in your kit, also. To reserve a kit, use the link provided in the event page at the library’s Facebook page, or give us a call at 308-962-7806.

Story Book Walks

Story book walks took the place of our in-person reading events this summer. Over the summer, our staff presented six different stories. The walks took place in the green space at the library, next to the Good Samaritan Homes and at the South Park Walking Trail. The stories then found another home when we had a request to share them with a nice lady in Holdrege, who posted them at a park in their town!

Lots of Reading this Summer

When you start working at the library, you never know what you’ll end up doing! Anna and Keziah found themselves spending some time in the front window at Wagner’s Grocery Store working on our summer reading display. The girls added scales to the dragon throughout the summer that represented the minutes read by the kids. By the end of July, the dragon was full of scales!

Summer Reading Fun

Our summer reading families couldn’t visit us in person this summer, but they did a great job of sharing the crafts from their take and go activity kits!

Summer Reading Activities

Even though we couldn’t meet in person this summer, we’d loved seeing how families were using their Summer Reading Activity Kits this summer! These kiddos were having fun with the dragon craft!

Our New Temporary Home

American Legion Hall 406 Nebraska Ave

We have moved to our new temporary home! The library has taken residence at the American Legion Hall, located between Don’s Barber Shop and Heartland Partners. We are officially open to the public and our hours are Monday-Friday, 1-5 PM.

Curbside delivery is still available to those who give us a call at 308-962-7806. We will pull your items for you, arrange a time to meet you outside during operating hours and run your items out to you.

The library’s renovation project should begin in August and if plans run accordingly, we will be operating out of the Legion Hall for the next six months until we move back to our home next to the Good Samaritan Society.
