2018 Brown Bag Programs

Brown Bag programs are noon events sponsored by the Friends of the Library organization and the North Platte Public Library. In addition, funding may come from Humanities Nebraska, the Nebraska Cultural Endowment, and the Faith Fisher Memorial Fund.  These are free 1-hour programs and attendees are encouraged to bring their own “brown bag” lunch to enjoy while listening to the speakers.  Please call the library at 535-8036, Ext. 3310 to reserve a seat as seating is limited to 70 people.  We have consistently had some of the local history programs hit the seating limit for reservations but then had 10-15 people not show up.  You are welcome to come to the library and wait for those with reservations to be seated; then find an empty seat.

In 2018, we have selected a wide variety of programs through the Humanities Nebraska Speakers Bureau.  These not only include historical and musical programs but also some programs that will expand our knowledge of current issues.

Below are a list of the programs currently scheduled.  Detailed descriptions will be added later through individual posts.
