Library News 1-14-21

I would like to introduce our new assistant to you – SunniJo Cooper. Some of you may remember her as SunniJo Johnson, daughter of Bob and Jodi. Sunni and her husband, Ryan, moved to Stromsburg in August and are remodeling a house to live in. They have two children, a boy and a girl who are in 5th and 3rd grades, respectively.  Welcome, Sunni!

We will be leaving the Christmas novellas up for a couple more weeks in case you just didn’t have time to read them during the holiday season. Then they will head back to the basement until November. If you are ever in need of a Christmas novella throughout the year, just ask us and we will be happy to retrieve one for you.

We are starting Preschool Story Time again this month. We will be meeting January 20 and 21 at 10:30 am. We are reading books about forest animals and studying the tracks they make.

Our new book shelf is looking pretty full. We have the first two books in a new series by Barbara Taylor Bradford available as well as books by popular authors like Janet Evanovich, Lee Child, Susan Wiggs and more. Stop in and see what’s new!

We’re Hiring!

Assistant Librarian Needed

The Stromsburg Public Library is hiring for the Assistant Librarian position. Duties will begin on or before December 16, 2020. Duties will include greeting patrons, checking in and checking out of materials using the library computer system, looking up materials for patrons, processing new materials, working with the director and summer reading coordinator on library programming, preparing library displays, posting to social media and creating library flyers. This is a part-time position (20 hours) which includes evening and Saturday hours. For a complete job description and application please stop by the library.

New Books

Hello all! I wanted to take a moment today to talk about new books I’m excited to read. Many of us enjoyed David Baldacci’s new series Atlee Pine and the third book, Daylight came out this week. Ree Drummond has also written a memoir! If you have ever perused one of her cookbooks you know that she has quick wit and a sentimental side. I’m looking forward to reading Frontier Follies: Adventures in Marriage, & Motherhood in the Middle of Nowhere. We also ordered a copy of Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man and after watching a few of Emmanuel Acho’s videos on social media I think this one will be very informative. I also feel like I can get through the information faster reading rather than watching videos.

Other new books that I know patrons will be interested in include, Carolina Breeze by Denise Hunter, The Other Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn (Bridgerton is an upcoming Netflix drama), Forgiving What You Can’t Forget by Lysa Terkeurst, Shadow of a Dragon by Marc Cameron, a Jack Ryan novel, Moonflower Murders by Anthony Horowitz, and Jo Nesbo’s The Kingdom.

Virtual Early Out Building Day

Hey, Kids! Even though we aren’t getting together to build on Wednesday I thought we could still have some fun. Can you build a pumpkin? Or even a Jack o’ Lantern?

How about a ghost? Be creative and build us something, have your parents snap a picture and post it in the Facebook event for everyone to see. All participants can stop in and receive something from the prize box.

Let’s still have some fun and be creative!

Riders of the Hoot – Owl Trail

Through poetry, music and narratives sisters, Marci Broyhill and Teresa Kay Orr, will present a program on the Riders of the Hoot-Owl Trail : Nebraska’s Outlaws. This is sure to be an entertaining and informational program about some little known Nebraska history. Join us October 6, @ 6:30 pm. We will be meeting in the big room so we can set up enough chairs to allow distance between attendees.
