20150806_115414_resized

Congratulations to three year old Athena Bottolfsen, daughter of Troy and Nicole Bottolfsen for completing the “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” program at the Hartington Public Library. She received a metal, certificate, prize and a FREE book from the library for her reading accomplishment. Great job to Athena, for being a good listener and to her parents for taking time out to read to her. She loves all the books at the library, particularly books on snails.

This program was launched 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.

Congratulations to our Book Buck Winners!

IMG_20150803_113546Erika Heiman, daughter of Dan and Francis Heiman received a $25 Barnes and Noble gift card from the library’s summer Book Buck program.

During the months of June and July, the Hartington Public Library launched a new reading incentive called “Book Bucks” for 3rd graders and older. The kids were given the chance to sign in at the checkout desk to read in the library. Each received a Book Buck for a 30 minute session that was put into a drawing. The more you read and the more book bucks you gained, the better their chances of winning. The library gave away 192 book bucks which equaled 96 hours read in the library. Thank you to all those that participated, it was great to see so many library visits and dedicated readers this summer.

Also, thank you to the Friends of the Library for purchasing the prizes for this promotion.

Congratulations to our 2 and 3rd place winners; Carson Arens, son of Brad and Jan Arens received a $15 gift certificate to Mrs. Z’s Korner Kones and Mason Buschkamp, son of Tony and Brenda Buschkamp received a $10 gift certificate to Mrs. Z’s Korner Kones.

July Book Club Selection. Meeting Monday August 3rd at 7:00pm @ the Library!

51faRUlBSGL__SX323_BO1,204,203,200_For much of her life, Anne Morrow, the shy daughter of the U.S. ambassador to Mexico, has stood in the shadows of those around her, including her millionaire father and vibrant older sister, who often steals the spotlight. Then Anne, a college senior with hidden literary aspirations, travels to Mexico City to spend Christmas with her family. There she meets Colonel Charles Lindbergh, fresh off his celebrated 1927 solo flight across the Atlantic. Enthralled by Charles’s assurance and fame, Anne is certain the celebrated aviator has scarcely noticed her. But she is wrong.

Charles sees in Anne a kindred spirit, a fellow adventurer, and her world will be changed forever. The two marry in a headline-making wedding. Hounded by adoring crowds and hunted by an insatiable press, Charles shields himself and his new bride from prying eyes, leaving Anne to feel her life falling back into the shadows. In the years that follow, despite her own major achievements—she becomes the first licensed female glider pilot in the United States—Anne is viewed merely as the aviator’s wife. The fairy-tale life she once longed for will bring heartbreak and hardships, ultimately pushing her to reconcile her need for love and her desire for independence, and to embrace, at last, life’s infinite possibilities for change and happiness.
The Aviator’s Wife is a vividly imagined novel of a complicated marriage—revealing both its dizzying highs and its devastating lows. With stunning power and grace, Melanie Benjamin provides new insight into what made this remarkable relationship endure.
