The microscope orientation session scheduled for Saturday, August 27 has been cancelled. We will be offering this at a later date if there is interest, so if you would like to take advantage of this, please let us know. We will schedule it when the most people can attend.
Our Watt Detector kits have been updated by OPPD to adjust for the new rate. This is an easy way to check up on how much energy some of your appliances or electronics are using. We don’t always think about the “phantom load” behind the scenes on gaming devices or DVRs, for example, but a Watt Detector kit can show you how much they are costing you when you aren’t even using them. Watt Detector kits may be checked out for 2 weeks.
Gary Brown will be on hand on Thursday, August 25 (6:30-7:30) and Saturday, August 27 (1:00-2:00) to provide pointers on getting the most out of your time with a microscope kit. Get some ideas on projects that you can create, including making photographs of your specimens using our smartphone adapter.
The programs are free, but registration is required. Call the library at 402-359-9924 to reserve your space!

We learned about sheep on Saturday at Story Time. We read Simpson’s Sheep Won’t Go to Sleep, written and illustrated by the Omahan Bruce Arant. We counted sheep using clothespins and made our own sheep from our hand prints.
At Whiz Kid Wednesday, we tasted 6 different root vegetables and rated them on how crunchy, moist and tasty they were. Have you eaten a raw parsnip? Thanks to Rachel from the County Extension Office for presenting again today!
