The Nebraska Library Commission and the Nebraska Library Association recently awarded 21st Century Librarian internship grants totaling $32,000 to twenty-one Nebraska public libraries. These internship grants will support public library interns, who will contribute to the scope and value of the diverse programs and activities in Nebraska’s public libraries.

Interns will lead youth summer reading program activities, conduct training sessions to teach senior citizens to use technology, facilitate book discussion activities, help develop and update library Website and Facebook pages, create young adult library programs and spaces, work on publicity materials for library programs, sort and preserve archival materials, and assist in a host of other worthwhile activities.

Fizz, Boom, Read! off to a great start

The Summer Reading Program is off to a great start!  We tested our senses of smell and touch with a blind test in each area.  Interesting guesses were made by the kids.  Then in the afternoon session, Deputy Jordan Bradley stopped by with his K-9 partner, Brody.  They gave a great demonstration, answered all sorts of questions and even let us get up close pet Brody for a job well done!

It was another great day to be @ the librarySRP pics week 1 30may14 011 SRP pics week 1 30may14 010SRP pics week 1 30may14 041 SRP pics week 1 30may14 028 SRP pics week 1 30may14 026 SRP pics week 1 30may14 012 SRP pics week 1 30may14 042 SRP pics week 1 30may14 009
