Welcome to the Tekamah Public Libraries new website, powered by WordPress. Take a look around and if you have any questions give us a call.
The end of the Summer Reading Program is here. To celebrate we are having a party at the library for the kids who participated and completed their goals. The party is at 4 pm on Wednesday the 27th of July. After the party, Keefers is having a Pizza Party. If you participated, come on by.
We hope you’ll join us for our summer reading kick-off party on Friday, June 10th at 2:00 p.m. at the Library. In addition to snacks and prizes, we will have a speical guest, Mr. David Marsh. He is a musician and speaker with the Nebraska Humanities Council. His program is titled “Music from Around the
World”. He uses a dozen or more instruments including the hammered dulcimer, banjo, accordion, autoharp, penny whistles, and more. He will demonstrate how music, like so many people, came to this country. Because of this “joining of musical culture, we now have the melting pot of America. This program is open to the public so bring all your friends!
The end of the school year has come. That means the Alumni Banquet can’t be far behind. This year it is May 28th. The library will also be having a get together before the banquet. From 3 pm to 5 pm there will be wine and cheese served at the library for Alums of Tekamah-Herman. Make sure to stop by and say hello.
Summer is on it’s way, and you all know what that means! Summer Reading Program time! We have some awesome activities planned for the kids this year…who doesn’t want to go to the circus for free? We will have all the information regarding sign up and events on the website in coming weeks. Make sure to bring your kids in to sign up. We’ll see you here!

As most of you know, I’m off to college, beginning a new step in my life. I will miss the library the most when I leave (well after my parents and friends of course). The library has left a definite mark on me, and is something I will never forget. It was more than just a job to me, it was a place where I could help people and see the little ones grow. Libraries will always have a special place in my heart and the Tekamah Carnegie Public library will always be at the top. And I have all the library staff and patrons to thank for making this experience so special. And thank you all for coming to “tea and crumpets” on my last day, that truly meant a lot. I know Tsehaynesh will do an outstanding job working there and I hope that she can have the same great experiences I had there. And hopefully the Gremlins won’t make her crazy! Thank you again!!! I will miss you all SO much!! Love, Kaylee
