Stop By Central City Public Library for a Blind Date… With a Book!

Tired of your same old relationships? Need something new and exciting?😯
DURING THE ENTIRE MONTH OF FEBRUARY, stop by the library for a mysterious rendezvous. We’d like to fix you up with a BLIND DATE (with a book of course); after all we are a library!πŸ˜ƒπŸ“š
We’ll select a variety of books, wrap them up in plain brown paper (no peeking) and you won’t know the β€œidentity” of your blind date until you get it home. Will it be fiction or non-fiction, a mystery, biography, or a cookbook? Funny, heart-breaking or informative?
Each book will have a β€œRate Your Date” slip. With each slip you return, you can ENTER A DRAWING TO WIN a $50 gift certificate for a dinner for two to Prairie Creek Vineyards & Winery!!πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•
Drawing slips must be returned by March 5, 2018!

FOR THE 10TH CONSECUTIVE YEAR, Central City Public Library HAS BEEN NAMED ONE OF AMERICA’S STAR LIBRARIES!

Our library has been awarded a coveted 4 Star rating inΒ Library Journal‘s 2017 national rating of public libraries, recognizing it as one of the top libraries in the nation!
WE ARE ONE OF ONLY FOUR LIBRARIES IN NEBRASKA TO RECEIVE A STAR RATING FOR 10 CONSECUTIVE YEARS!
Over 7,409 libraries across the nation were evaluated for the “America’s Star Libraries” report.Β In this edition, there are 259 Star Libraries, each receiving three-Star, four-Star, or five-Star designations.
The LJ Index gives an overall indication of how libraries stack up to their peers nationally. This award is based on five separate categories: number of visitors, rate of circulation, attendance at local programs, internet usage, and electronic circulation (electronic circulation was added beginning with the 2016 edition).
Being recognized on a national level is a true honor we share not only with our library staff and Library Board of Trustees, but with our exceptional library patrons and fantastic community partners as well! We could not have achieved this national recognition without all of you!
Thank-YOU for making us an America’s Star Library once again!
