We are starting to plan this summer’s reading program! We are not sure how things are going to go but we plan on our schedule staying the same or similar at least even if we have to go digital. I have created a site to use as a landing page for our summer reading programs.
To help stop the spread of COVID-19, schools and libraries are closing across the country. ABDO wants to ensure that readers everywhere continue to have the opportunity to learn and grow during this unprecedented event. ABDO digital products are available for free now through June 2020.

This grant has more to it but so far I have purchased four new computer monitors for the patron computers. They all turn on and off, are all the same size and look beautiful! I cannot wait for you all to be able to use them. There is much more to this grant and I will update you as those projects are completed.
For now, here they are:
This project is supported in part by the Institue of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the Nebraska Library Commission.
As more teachers and students are advised to stay home and work remotely, Google wants to help you be as effective as possible setting up successful distance-learning solutions.

We will be hosting another summer story hour program through the month of June. The theme this year is “A Universe of Stories”. Any child from preschool thru elementary age are welcome to attend. Story hour will be every Friday in June starting this Friday, June 7th, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. They will read a story, make fun crafts, do exciting activities, and eat tasty treats. We hope to see there!
