Get ready to hone your story-telling skills!!! Thanks to a Nebraska Humanities Council grant, we will host a teaching artist for the program, “Our-story” IS history! Join us from 10:30amCT to noon each weekday as we work with D. Kevin Williams to craft a story to be passed down to future generations! We are honored to host Mr. Williams… Kevin has been developing his professional and instructional craft in the dramatic arts for over 35 years. His performance credits range from local and regional commercial appearances at 12 years old, to performing radio and television voice overs. Most notably is the Emmy nominated, animated children’s series, Liberty’s Kids, the Nebraska and North Carolina Shakespeare Festivals and the film For the Love of Amy. He has also toured with the National Broadway Company of The Color Purple, and so much more…
Kevin’s goals for the workshop is for participants to record a piece of history around one event that may have never been told before and can be passed on to future generations. We can better understand, appreciate, and respect each other’s experiences and hopefully gain a perspective of how to understand that we are all part of the human race.

Posted inUncategorized|Comments Off on Creative Arts for the Aging Program Coming to the Palisade Public Library August 8th – 12th!!!
Greetings from the Palisade Public Library, I have been working as a Library Intern for almost a month now and I cant believe how fast the time has gone by. In this last month I have learned so much from how to check in and out books to fun things to do with kids. Most of my time as a library intern has been spent with the amazing kids from the library reading program but I still have time to do things like learn how to enter new books into our library system.
One of my favorite things about this job is getting to spend so much time with kids. It is so much fun to see them get to learn new things, make new friends, and be creative with the crafts we do. This year for Pioneer Days the summer reading program entered into the parade and the kids got to walk and blow bubbles while singing Baby Shark. My favorite thing we did with the kids is take them to the park to measure out the size of a real whale, with this they were able to get an idea of just how big the ocean and the creatures in the ocean really are. I am so thankful to the Nebraska Library Commission for this opportunity to do all of these amazing things.
