Humanities Nebraska speaker to appear: Charlotte Endorf will present a 30 minute program on The Life and Legacy of Annie Oakley on February 23, 2015 at 12:00pm at the Loup City Public Library. This presentation is made possible by Humanities Nebraska, the Nebraska Cultural Endowment, and the Loup City Public Library as part of the HN Speakers Bureau.

She was described as the “greatest woman rifle shot.” A star attraction of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, Oakley thrilled audiences around the world with her daring shooting feats. A champion in a man’s sport, she changed ideas about the abilities of women in the 19th century, yet she opposed female suffrage. Her fame and fortune came from her skill with guns, yet she was a Quaker. Endorf’s presentation guides the audience through these dichotomies and dispels myth to reveal the real Annie Oakley. The program will be followed by a question-and-answer period. Charlotte Endorf has coauthored the following books: “After the Rain Oh the Beautiful Rainbow”, “By Train They Came: Fragile Excess Baggage”, “Bless Your Hearts: The North Platte Canteen”, and “Unsung Neighbors”, to name a few. Bring a “brown bag lunch” and enjoy this opportunity!

The CCC outreach coordinator, Judith Weston, was up to the library tonight.  Some brainstorming for future classes needs to be done.  We could offer more computer classes:  Excel, Facebook, ebay, webpages, blogging…
Other options are: Quilting 101, Beading classes, knitting, crocheting, Genealogy, Painting, Writing your life story, Making a family cookbook, Estate Planning, Budgeting, Couponing, What are some ways to tell if your house is haunted :), children’s literature for grandparents, Spanish, etc.
Kids camps like first aid/trauma classes–what do you do if…
Survival camp type classes
There is even archeology and different religion (gospels) lecture series.  Pick up a booklet and help us decide what type of classes would be good for the community.
