Did you have a child that attended our summer reading program ? If you did they are eligible to be entered in a drawing for $529.00 college scholarship from the Nebraska library commission! All you have to do is let Wendy at the library know you want your child entered in the drawing before August 19th. They are going to have 15 winners in our area so there is a good chance someone from our library could win! AND if one of our library’s children gets picked our library will also get $250.00. So give us a call, we just need your child’s name and your home phone #.
Lied Lincoln Library is issuing a challenge to readers of all ages, (kids and teens included), sometime readers and would-be readers to read 26 books in 2015-16. The library will issue two challenges each month. Either post what books you have read each month on the web page or e-mail the library at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what you have read. See if you will be able to complete all 26 challenges. Not only will you have the satisfaction of knowing you have met all the challenges and read 26 books, the library will also acknowledge your accomplishment with a special gift. So let’s get started!
The challenge for August is:
1. A book you own but haven’t read.
2. A book that was made into a movie.
I’ve always enjoyed books by Heather Graham, and her newest one, “Nightingale” is one of her best. The book is a story of two sisters growing up in an idyllic childhood in Paris. But life quickly changes when Hitler’s Nazi’s march in one day to occupy Paris. Soon hardships set in throughout France and the sisters take different paths in coping with the occupation. One soon finds herself working with the underground while the other is trying to just cope with life with her daughter and
her husband, and the hardship and dangers of living under the Nazi’s thumb. This is a book that is a hard to lay down book. If you like a historical background, along with a great story, this one is for you.
Coffee and conversation at the library today at 2:00pm! See you there!
Scenes from our two May parties and from our coffee and conversation day. We made our mothers a washer necklace for Mothers Day, played spring Bingo for prizes and had cupcakes. At coffee and conversation we had cherry bars and scones with coffee and had a great visit.
What a great day to come to the library, sit by the fake fire, curl up with a good book, and watch the rain..
The Library is getting rid of all of the VHS movies. They are $1.00 each and there are a lot left to pick from!
Lost Writers of the Plains is an NET Radio series beginning March 6th, with a companion website and ebook. It features eight authors who once were poised for fame, but who have become “lost” to contemporary readers: an author who had a stroke when she got a bad review; a stark realist censored by an anxious dean, a bohemian poet in the middle of Kansas- these and more are the Lost Writers. All have a plains connection, almost all have ties to Nebraska.
The free Lost Writers of the Plains iBook, available at the iTunes store, is designed to be interactive. It offers adult non-fiction and fiction completely integrated with sound, video and images.
