February Has Been Busy!

February has been a busy month at the library.    On Friday, February 10th,  six preschool children were treated to a Valentine scavenger hunt.  The hearts they found were then made into necklaces.  Following the scavenger hunt they enjoyed a story entitled “The Valentine Mice”.   To top off the morning the preschool children were given a Valentine treat from Mrs. Gunderson and Mrs. Bode.  Then on February 13, we visited St. Boniface first and second graders for a story and Valentine craft.

Book Club will be held on February 22, at 4:00.  They will be discussing The Pilot’s Wife.

New books in the library are Into the Firestorm by Kat Martin and Echoes in Death:  An Eve Dallas Novel by J.D. Robb.

Change of Hours

Can’t get out on these cold days – give us a call and we would be happy to bring the books to you.  Another option to avoid getting out in the cold is to use Overdrive.  OverDrive Digital Library Reserve is a web-based digital media platform that enables library patrons to download popular digital audiobooks and eBooks from a customized library website. eBooks and audiobooks can be checked out and downloaded to all major computers, tablets, and smartphones, and are automatically returned to the collection when the checkout time expires.  Upcoming events at the library include Book Club on January 25, 2017 and the Library Board on January 31, 2017.  Events planned for February include storytime, lego league, and Blind date with a book.  More information on these events will be available later this month.  We would also like to remind everyone that our Friday hours have changed.  We will now be open from 9 to 1:00 every Friday.

Visit us on our website at http://libraries.ne. gov/elgin.  Our regular hours are Monday 5-7 p.m., Tuesday 1-5 p.m., Wednesday 1-7 p.m. and Thursday and Friday 9 – 1 p.m.  Library doors are a gateway to anywhere.
