They will be given to the hospitals, rescue units, and nursing homes. They can be dropped off at the library during open hours or put in the drop off box.

Have you ever heard of NebaskAccess? Through the Nebraska Library Commission, you have access to a free website that can direct you to tracing your family tree (My Heritage Library Edition) or answer medical questions (Consumer Health Complete). This website can help students with reports through a large selection of periodicals, government publications, and a current reference center. Another neat thing about NebraskAccess is that the school libraries have it available fo…r students. Reports can be completed from home or school! There’s more on the website, such as, current magazine publications, how to start a small business, a reference center for legal information, and more.
