Do you miss Harry Potter?

The story continues… Enjoy it free at your local library.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage.

Bill is a wonderful entertainer and we enjoyed his visit.

IMG_0040Who wished for rain? While we can all agree Nebraska needs the moisture, this cold, windy sleet is no fun!

Here’s a hint: It’s easier to be happy about the rain when you are warm and dry. So come on in to the library where you can enjoy the weather!

I grew up in a small town and like to visit my local library. I don’t have internet at home, so when I visit the library I usually use the computers.
