Prime Time

Friday evening @ 5pm. Next session begins: Feb. 25- April 1, 2022 @ 5pm. Open to preschool and elementary children & their parents/ caregivers.

It’s free, but registration is required! Please stop by the library to register, or call Rossy at the library (324-2151).

Prime Time is an interactive program featuring story sharing, literacy exploration via play and group discussion for two age groups: preschool and elementary.

All Prime Time programs are free to participants and include complimentary books, nutritious meals, and door prizes! A light meal will be served prior to the program. Registration is required so we know how much food to get!

A trained facilitator reads and leads a group discussion of beautifully illustrated and award-winning children’s books which include classic stories as well as new tales that promote reading and school readiness. Another facilitator then leads the children and their parents through center-based activities based on the text that encourages increased comprehension and critical thinking. The program models strategies that encourage meaningful at-home reading behavior between parents/caregivers and their young children.

Upcoming Prime time sessions: 2/25/2022, 3/4/2022, 3/11/2022, 3/18/2022, 3/25/2022, and  4/1/2022

With characters depicted in precise detail and wide panorama – a kept-woman’s parlor, a contentious interracial baseball game on the Fourth of July, and the tragic true events of the Omaha Race Riot of 1919 – Kings of Broken Things reveals the folly of human nature in an era of astonishing ambition.

     Thursday, May @ 7 pm: Joe Starita presents I Am a Man: Chief Standing Bear’s Journey for Justice.

“I Am a Man” chronicles what happened when Standing Bear set off on a 600-mile walk to return the body of his only son to their traditional burial grounds. Along the way, it examines the complex relationship between the United States government and the small, peaceful tribe and the legal consequences of land swaps and broken treaties, while never losing sight of the heartbreaking journey the Ponca endured.
