Humanities Nebraska Speaker Jeff Kappeler

Jeff Kappeler, Executive Director of the May Museum and talented Humanities Nebraska Speaker shares a bit of history at our library event.  He shared items that immigrants from Northern Europe brought with them to Nebraska when they began a new chapter in their life.  Very Interesting.  The May Museum will have a larger display with these and many other items in the fall.  Jeff’s program really made me interested in searching my own family history.

Robert and Anne Soukup have family items which were brought over from the old country on display in our display case.

Come in and learn .

Little Free Library open in Morse Bluff

The Little Free Library is stationed on the South side of the MB Post Office.

Children’s books, general fiction, a few non fiction books, magazines, book marks, and a couple of movies are included in the library.  The library holds 47 books!  Double what I thought it would hold, so it’s all good.  The theory behind it is to bring a book, take a book….but if you don’t have a book to bring this time, remember next time.  Let us know what you think of the selection because we have different books to add to the little library all the time.

Cedar Bluffs will have their little library opening soon….at this time, they are planning on putting it up on the South side of their Post Office, too.  Will let you know more details when the project is complete.

Enjoy your Little Free Library – IMG_2712

From your stewards….. the North Bend Public Library

IMG_2705 IMG_2707 IMG_2708 IMG_2710

This quilt was made by Jan Merryweather in 2007

The quilt was made for Bryant Frazce, graduate of 2007. She used a pattern from Quilt Yard Fold and Finish collection.

The pattern is named Brick and Bar.  This is a reversed pattern.  Fabric purchased at Country Traditions in Fremont, NE.

The stitching detail is amazing.  The varied horizontal and vertical stitching and fabric is so interesting.  And it is reversible.  Come in and see this quilt for yourself.  On display until the second Monday in April….April 11th we will get a different quilt to display

Photo Quilt on display

The latest quilt on display at the library is a quilt with photo squares.

The quilt was made for Samantha Dolezal, daughter of Pam and Larry Dolezal in 2015 by Kim Rangel from Gothenburg, NE.  This was Kim’s first time making a quilt and she learned how by checking out a book from her local library!  We have sewing, craft and decorating books, too.  Stop in and check them out.

This quilt is on display until the first week of February.
