Archive for August, 2010

We had some nice days to enjoy the outdoors, but today it is hot again.  It is still August.

The library has been busy with check-outs and computer use.  Our computers are used for homework and on-line college classes.  They are also used for relaxation after school and keeping in contact with friends and relatives.  We are happy to provide this service for the public.

New Books this week:  Losing Charlotte by Heather Clay;  The Island by Elin Hilderbrand;  The Passage by Justin Cronin;  Heart of the Matter by Emily Giffin;  Fly Away Home by Jennifer Weiner;  and As Husbands Go by Susan Isaacs.

The library staff is working toward doing a through inventory in the next couple of weeks and then add many new items.  Something to look forward to. 🙂

Have you read a classic lately?  Since we don’t have any new books arriving this week, come in and browse the shelves for something – a book that you always thought you would get around to reading someday.  We have classics by authors such as Mari Sandoz, Willa Cather, Stevenson, John Updike, Steinbeck, Jane Austin and many more.  We also have a good collection of local and state history books.

There are many events coming up in the next few weeks that I will be writing about.  Look forward to more information on Downloadable Audio books, and a special display on Banned Books – you will be surprised at what is on the banned book list.

The Farmer’s Day book sale is right around the corner.  If you have books to donate, please bring them in soon.  And Thanks to all the people who have donated already.

Around and on Farmer’s Day, the Library will have a display of paintings by Rachelle Eversole of Broadwater, NE, a Certified Instructor by Bob Ross Studios will be in the Cultural Room.  In addition, there will be a display of some older local pictures and other items that will bring back memories.  Be sure to add the Library displays and the Book Sale to your Farmer’s Day rounds.

Hi all,
