Scribner Public Library has moved and we are slowly settling in to our new space. As I look around at the new building and all of the additional space we have, the new computers, the new shelves, the new furniture, I am so incredibly grateful. There is no Library or Librarian in Nebraska that has ever received such a gift. There are no words heartfelt enough to express our thank you to the Furstenau Family.
This will be an article filled with appreciation for our community, as so many helped with our move. So, here goes. (I hope I don’t leave anyone out)
To our Shelf Movers, Diesel Dostal and Mike Baumert, thank you so much for offering to move the Shelves and recruiting the following volunteers, Corey Schlueter, Marvin Pieper, John Stockamp, Matt Giesselmann, and Joe Wolfgram, thank you for getting them here in perfect condition! To everyone that provided boxes and/or carts to move them, Kriz-Davis, Desmond Smith, Diesel Dostal, Arlene Alsmeyer, Scribner-Snyder Schools, Rich Alt, Lee’s Market, Z’s Bar and Grill, and Scribner Pharmacy. I have so many beautiful ladies to thank, but first I would like to thank their amazing husbands! Glenn Sweet, Rich Alt, Myron Groppe and Janis Baker’s Boys, and my son Joshua and my Husband Mike. Thank you all for putting up with a week of late or no dinners and some exhausted wives.
And now on to the beautiful ladies! Cindy Stollberg, Susie Dostal, Lori Baumert, Joyce Tienken, Peg Koopman, Steph Rangeloff, Laura Sweet, Lindsey Stumpe, Jeannete Groppe and Lorna Von Seggern, thank you for the millions of ways you helped! Christine Smith, and Janis Baker, there are no words to express my gratitude, Thank you for supporting me and for all that you do! Denise Grunke, Thank you for a million things, but mostly for believing in me and reminding me, that we could do this! There is no way to ever thank you enough Denise, much love from me. And to My Maggee Alt, I love you lady, you amaze me with your continued dedication to the Library and The Friends of the Library. All of your tireless efforts before and during the move, I can never thank you enough. You may have noticed how many names are mentioned in this thank you, it was truly a community effort. Done by volunteers!
I would like to thank Mayor Thomas and the City Council Members, for all you have done to make this possible. I wish you could see each child’s face light up when they see all that you have done for each of them! You have made this Library a Dream Come True!
It has been wonderful showing the public everything in the new Library, and I have truly loved watching our Scribner Youth as they walk in and see the changes, new space and new computers. The absolute best part of my job is the people who use the library, you are the reason I am here! So, if you have time stop in and see us, we would love to see you! Thank you Scribner, for letting me be your Librarian! Angie
