    Library Book Nook – January 2020

    Happy New Year!  If you find yourself trying to stay out of the cold, swing by the library first and check out a book, movie or a puzzle.  We have several puzzles that are available for a renewable two week period.  From 300 to 1500 pieces, we have puzzles that are sure to help you pass the long winter months. 

    New in 2020 we will be offering a Door to Door program.  Any individual who is unable to get to the library due to age, surgery, illness, or disability can call the library and have books, movies, puzzles, etc. delivered to their home.  We will deliver on Tuesday afternoons and only within the city of Battle Creek.  If you are interested in this service give the library a call!

    We will be having a Teddy Bear Sleepover on Friday, January 10th.  Children are welcome to bring a stuffed animal to the library on Friday before 6:00pm.  The stuffed animal will spend the night at the library having all kinds of stuffed animal fun!  Then the next morning, Saturday, January 11th, the children are welcome to come back to the library for Story Time at 9:00am.  They will see and learn all about the fun their stuffed animal had overnight and take their stuffed animal home. 

    Lego Club is starting!  Thanks to donations and a grant from the Nebraska Library Commission we are able to start a Lego club for students 2nd-6th grades.  We will have January’s  LEGO club on Thursday, January 9th and 23rd from 3:45-4:45.  No reservations are necessary at this time but depending on the turnout we may have to limit the amount of attendees in the future.
