Wreath Auction Extended!

Posted By on December 12, 2013

The 4th Annual Wreath Silent Auction has been extended!  The auction will now be moving to the Opera House on Sunday, December 15th so the public has another chance to view the 13 beautiful wreaths and decorations that have been donated.  The auction will end at 2pm, right after the old time movies.  The winners who are present can take their wreaths home with them that day and all other winning bidders will be contacted on Sunday evening or Monday.  This is our only fundraiser for the year and we use all profits from it for special projects such as our summer reading programs, the purchase of the DVD cleaning machine, our subscription to Nebraska Overdrive and matching funds for grants. Here are a few pictures of the wreaths!


Overdrive is here!!!

Posted By on October 9, 2013

We are now members of Nebraska Overdrive and that means that as patrons of Clarkson Public Library, you have full access to a large collection of downloadable audiobooks and ebooks.  Your patron info has already been added to the database, all you have to do is search and request the item you want to download.
Here is the link:

After you search for the item you are looking for, it will ask for the library in which you are a member of and after you select it, it will ask for your patron number.  Your patron number is the 3 digit code you have been previously assigned by us and you use for checking out items here in the library, it is NOT a new number.

We will be having a workshop on November 9th at 10am.  The workshop will feature tutorials on how to navigate the database and download your items as well as, demonstrations on several devices (ipad, Kindle, Kindle fire, Nook, laptop, etc.)  We encourage you to attend and bring along your device or just come for a demonstration if you are considering purchasing one in the future, we would love to have you!  No preregistration is needed.

We do have on hand at the library, instructions for navigating the database as well as some handouts from the NLC about how to use various devices for you to pick up in you need them.
