1000 Books Before Kindergarten

DSC01968

Congratulations to Ziva and Quinn Stratman, daughters of Curt and Annie Stratman, Wynot who completed the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten last week at the Hartington Public Library. They each received a reading certificate, medal and a book for their reading accomplishment!

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.

If you are interested in learning more about this reading adventure for your child, please stop by or call the library at 402-254-6245.

October Book Club Read

MemoryKeepersDaughter

We will be discussing Memory Keeper’s Daughter by Kim Edwards on Monday Nov. 3rd at 7:00pm at the library.

Synopsis: On a winter night in 1964, Dr. David Henry is forced by a blizzard to deliver his own twins. His son, born first, is perfectly healthy. Yet when his daughter is born, he sees immediately that she has Down’s Syndrome. Rationalizing it as a need to protect Norah, his wife, he makes a split-second decision that will alter all of their lives forever. He asks his nurse to take the baby away to an institution and never to reveal the secret.But Caroline, the nurse, cannot leave the infant. Instead, she disappears into another city to raise the child herself. So begins this beautifully told story that unfolds over a quarter of a century in which these two families, ignorant of each other, are yet bound by the fateful decision made that long-ago winter night.

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!
