Kathryn Burney, Omaha (left of Joan and Juli Burney) and relatives stopped by the library this morning to see the beautiful gazebo she donated in memory of her mother-in-law Edna Wales Burney, wife of Governor Dwight Burney. She was very impressed by it’s completion and our beautifully landscaped backyard! Her gift of $25,000 also allowed us to purchase 8 ipad tablets in the library. Thank you Kathryn for your generosity to the community of Hartington!

Congratulations goes to Kally Becker daughter of Doug and Sheila Becker and Madelynn Heimes, daughter of Bob and Michelle Heimes who completed the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten last week at the library.

This program was developed  to instill the love of reading, get children ready for school, and to encourage more parent/child library visits. Books are logged and prizes are awarded along the way. One of the best ways to encourage pre-reading skills is to spend time sharing books each and every day!  Reading provides a solid foundation, a key to school and learning success. When you, as a parent read to your child, you help him or her develop the skills they will need to learn to read by themselves. 10626413_10152442988954565_7521967840571807857_o
