Pam Marco taught crafters how to make beautiful deco mesh wreaths at the library’s March Pinterest class. As you can see in the photos, each wreath can turn out very unique (depending upon the size of the form, the types of embellishments, etc.).

The library is hosting an after-school session on February 24 for 20 girls from grades K-6 who would like to learn more about another country. Barb Hoff, co-ordinator for International Students at Nebraska Christian High School, along with her Asian students, will provide a one-on-one experience for the first 20 girls who register for the program. The girls will choose a new Thai, Chinese, Korean, or Vietnamese name, learn how to say simple phrases and sing a familiar song in that language, and count. There will be foods and other treats, and flash cards with phonetic pronunciations will be prepared along with other things for children to take home. The session will run from 3:30 to approximately 5 PM. If this session is successful, another session for boys will be scheduled later.
Registration can be done by either calling the library at 946-2512, or emailing the library at email@example.com. Registration will be closed after 20 have signed up, but we will keep a reserve list in case someone cannot make it. Please let the library know if, for some reason, you are one of the 20 and find you cannot attend so we can notify the next one one the list.

Blind Date With a Book
Make a Blind Date With a Book (February 1-28). Tired of your same old relationships? Need something new and exciting? During the month of February, stop by the library for a mysterious rendezvous. We’d like to fix you up with a blind d…ate (with a book of course); after all we are a library! We’ll select a variety of books, wrap them up in plain brown paper (no peeking) and you won’t know the “identity” of your blind date until you get it home. Each book will have a “Rate Your Date” slip. With each slip returned, you can enter to win a drawing to win dinner for two at the Lincoln Manor Steak House in Central City. So, be sure to stop by the library anytime between February 1-28. Who know, you might get lucky; if not in love then perhaps in literature?
