“Lego Man” Event

This past Saturday (the 17th) the Lego Man came to Meadow Grove and we had 30 childre3n and their parents attend.  They listened to information about when Legos were first marketed, how many have been made and how the Star Wars Legos came to be.  Everybody then had the chance to build something with many, many Legos!!

Before everybody went home we had a drawing for baseball tickets for the Omaha Storm Chasers games July 30 or July31. The tickets were for their annual library event. Winners of the tickets were: Mikayla Ottis, Bentley Kuchar and Taylor Ahlman. Way to go guys and gals!! Have fun!!

Library board member Megan Novotny has already posted pictures of the “Lego Man” event, so take the time to see how much fun everybody had.

Great News For Our Library!!

It is such a beautiful morning & I have a lot of good news to share with you!!

First of all, this weekend at our Santa event we will be selling raffle tickets for a beautiful quilt that Pat Peterson of Tilden, Ne,  made and donated to the library.

Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5.  Remember Santa will be at the Fire Station from 1-3 Saturday afternoon, with the Fire Department furnishing the goody bags for the kids.  Horse-drawn wagon rides will also be available for even more fun.

Saturday I received the great news that our grant with ADM, this company has the elevator south of Meadow Grove, has been accepted! Funds from this grant are going to fund a special event during Summer Story Hour next summer. Sorry, I can’t tell you what yet!

The last bit of good news, and also very important to us, is that our library was lucky enough to have their name drawn in the Library Commission’s drawing for extending our accreditation another year, This means we are accredited until 2020! This is really super!!

I absolutely love these days when I have all of this good news to tell you about. Have a Great Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

Changes to our Page!!

Just like the heading says, “Check Out the Changes”!! I am so excited to have this done finally! Aneeka Ramirez of our new library system came up for a visit yesterday and was kind enough to set this all up for us. It will be a one stop shopping experience for all of you.

The OverDrive link will take you right to the page where you will start “shopping” for a new book to read!

The link for Destiny will take you to the page where you can see if we have a certain book or movie you have been wanting. If you find it, call the library and have us reserve it for you.

How much easier is that. If you have any questions, just call me at the library.
