One of my least favorite jobs at the library is getting rid of old books. There is limited space, so some of the books that are well worn or never get checked out have to be discarded. These books are available free (donations accepted) for whomever wants them. Come in and look them over. You may find the perfect book for you.
Here’s an interesting website called Phone Spell that will generate words from your phone number. This makes it much easier for people to remember. Wouldn’t it be cool if the library’s number could be 308-527-READ or something similar? Well, alas, we’re not that lucky. The best combination they could come up with is 308-jar-gag1. That’s probably not a great way to remember the library 🙂
Come into the library and find a good book. Stay inside and beat the heat. Remember, we also have 4 public computers with a color printer and scanner. We can make black & white and color copies, as well as send and receive faxes.

The 2010-2011 Nebraska Blue Book has just been added to our collection. The Blue Book is Nebraska’s official reference manual, and is a great source of information about the state’s government, geography, economy, history and culture.
The library will be closed on Monday, July 4th.
It seems like everyday we hear about some website that has been hacked into. How can you know if your password is safe? Here is a site that will help you to know if your password has been compromised and needs to be changed.
The library has been approved for E-Rate this next year. This is a program through the government that pays 70% of our library’s phone and internet bill. In case you have ever wondered, you may have noticed on your personal phone bill that you are charged a universal service fee each month. Some of this money collected is used to provide a discount for schools and libraries on telecommunication services and Internet access. You are charged a universal service fee each month whether or not a local school or library applies for E-Rate. This is a great way to bring state and federal taxes back into the community.
