The new library is moving along.  All the electrical is done and awaiting the Fire Marshal to give his approval.  Then the insulation will be put in, wallboard installed and the  painting done.  The shelving is to be finished the end of February and then will be installed.  The guys have had to work in some bitter temperatures to get this work done and we appreciate all their efforts.

The cookbooks are dwindling down and there will not be reprints.  If you would like a  cookbook(s), e-mail linctnlb@gpcom.net with your request and we will get them to you.  They are $20.00 plus $3.50 postage if mailed.  We have had so many nice comments on the book and even though there are a few corrections (at least ones that we know of,) we  are pretty proud of the end  product.  We have raised  over $5,000.00 to be used for the furnishings of the new library.

Due to construction of the new library this summer, and for safety reasons, the Summer Reading program will not be held this year.  We look forward to having our Summer Reading program next year in the new library.

“Spring Work” Painting Up for Bids

Scan 1570005 copy


The inspiration for this painting is the memory of the rural community surrounding the Village of Wausa, Knox County in northeast Nebraska circa the late 1940′s or early 50′s. The three tractors depicted are a “styled” John Deere Model A, and International Harvester Farmall Model M, and an Allis Chalmers Model WC of which the one depicted would be of 1934 to 1937 vintage. These were the most common brands used in the Wausa area as these three companies had a dealership in Wausa. As the farmers made their rounds in the field preparing a seedbed they would approach the fence line at the same time and stop to visit. It is a cherished memory.

A most beautiful, picture perfect day greeted the Lied Lincoln Township
Library for the groundbreaking for the new Wausa library. The ceremony
was held April 27, 2013 at 1:30 p.m. on the library grounds. Many
gathered, some with their lawn chairs, to enjoy the warm day and to enjoy
the festivities. Mayor Bill Schumacher welcomed everyone and introduced
Pastor Michelle Oetken, Thabor Lutheran Church, to give the blessing. He
then introduced the members of the Lincoln Township Board, the Lincoln
Township Library Board, the Lincoln Library Foundation Board , the
Building Committee and the Library Director. All of these individuals
have put in many hours of their time and efforts to make this day

Mayor Schumacher then introduced Shane Clausen, of Clausen Brothers
Contractors, who spoke on the years and efforts in making the new library
a reality. Construction of the library will begin in June. State
Senator Tyson Larson was present and spoke of the benefits a town receives
from having a library and of the benefits that a new library will give to
the people of Wausa. The ground breaking, with a representative from
each board, plus Senator Tyson, Shane Clausen and Virginia Lindquist,
library director each taking a gold shovel, thanks to the efforts of Fred
Frank, and turned the dirt for the new library. Pastor Michelle then gave
a blessing on the soil that will be where the new library is to be built.
Everyone enjoyed refreshments and visiting and looking forward to day the
new library will be a reality for Wausa.

The  ground breaking for the library was postponed because of the weather.  Although not as much snow was received as predicted, I was happy to not have to stand in the cold wind, in snow up to my ankles, trying to chip into frozen ground.  Maybe Mother Nature knew better than we did.  Plans are being made to have the ground breaking at a later time — we’ll keep you posted.
