Happy Holidays! The library will be closed for Christmas, Friday, December 24th. We’ll see you on Monday, December 27th.

The Niobrara County Library Foundation’s Kresge Challenge has had a couple of fantastic boosts recently. At this writing there remains $23,652.89 to raise to complete the challenge! An anonymous donor created an Irrevocable Planned Gift that brings our challenge to this stage. If
you would like to participate yet this year or learn more about planned giving please contact a foundation member. Also, due to the complexity of the funds transfer at the end of the year if you are planning on participating in this opportunity we would ask that all gifts be made by December 29th. Once this goal is met an additional $83,333 will be added to our endowment fund bringing us much closer to our long-term goal of 1.5 million by 2015.

New books in the adult library include “When Christmas Comes” by Debbie Macomber, “System of the World” by Neal Stephenson, “A Hoe Lot of Trouble” by Heather Webber, “Currant Events” by Piers Anthony, “The Lazarus Vendetta” by Robert Ludlum, “Jericho’s Road” by Elmer Kelton, “Guilty Pleasures” by Laurell K.
