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.
