Youngsters 2-4 are invited to a TODDLER TIME
on Monday evening, February 26, from 6:30pm-7:15pm.
The theme is “All About Me,” and activities will include stories, games, crafts, music and movement activities, and more. Children are welcome to come dressed in their PJ’s and bring a favorite stuffed toy. The toys will not be spending the night this time—that will be part of the summer Toddler Time activities in June. Please register your child online so we have a good idea of supplies and materials needed.
Game Night for Teens/Tweens is coming up on Tuesday, February 27th @ 6:30pm-8:00pm!
Cool prizes! Play games on our NEW Nintendo Switch system! We’ll have board games and yummy snacks! Pokémon battles will be fought and cards may be traded! See you there!

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 in 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. 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!
During Christmas vacation, why not encourage your children to read from some new sources. You can check out great reads from the comfort of your own home! There are several ways that you can read great books without having to come into the library.
