Catching up!

Sorry, I have not been updating this page! I am settling into my new job here at the Library. We ran a summer reading program, had a walking taco takeout meal and we are currently in “Camp Library 2020”. We cannot hold a true camp, but we have a fun play campsite in the children’s area, a fishing pond with prizes, take and make crafts, and Miss Dawn will make you a smore. Stop by and enter to win prizes weekly! We are still limiting the number of patrons to 10 at one time and doing extra cleaning to counters, tables, door knobs, and using Lysol spray on the play area. Looking forward to August already and making preparations for “The Dog Days of Summer”.

Hello, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Dawn C Brown and on April 1, 2020, I became the library director, taking over for Rachelle. She is dearly missed. I have some big shoes to fill. Currently, there are no reading programs or story hour being held, due to the Covid19 Crisis. I would like to encourage continued reading during this time. We anxiously await a return to “normal”, and I look forward to meeting all the patrons.

Flashlight Friday

Our After School Reading Program has started a new fun activity to celebrate the love of reading.  Our after school readers that come throughout the week and read will get to enjoy using mini flashlights during our designated reading time on Fridays.  This is a reward for their hard work and good behavior during the week.  They can enjoy reading in the dark and celebrate the awesome week they had at the library. We welcome all children in grades K-6 to join us for the afterschool reading program Tuesday-Friday at the library immediately following the release of school at the end of each day.

AWE Work Stations Arrive

The Beaver City Public Library is excited to announce the arrival of our two new AWE work stations.  We were able to purchase the new stations through funding from a library improvement grant offered by the Nebraska Library Commission.  We have an early literacy station and an after school edge station.  Each station has a brightly colored keyboard, headsets, and a touch screen computer loaded with over 4000 educational activities for children to use.  These stations are not connected to the internet so there is no risk of young children accidentally viewing inappropriate or harmful content.  The library staff and board are happy to offer these stations as a fun opportunity for children to learn educationally through the use of technology.  Our youngest patrons are enjoying being able to take part in playing on the computers like the older children.

Thank You Nebraska Library Commission for awarding our library grant money!!!
