Library News

This week begins a rather big job in the library. The ceiling in the Lennea Lewis Slagle Children’s Library is being redone and next week new lighting will be installed. Dvd’s, videos, some books and children’s material as well as the reading tables have been relocated to the basement during this transition.

On Monday, March 19 the library will be closed for potentially the entire week as new lighting is installed on the main floor. Item limits will be raised to accommodate this interruption, so don’t hesitate to check out a few more items. It is hoped that the library will be able to open through the Carnegie entrance the end of that week, we’ll keep you posted.

The Niobrara County Library Foundation will hold a Texas Hold’em Tournament on Sunday, March 18 at the Niobrara Country Club beginning at 1 p.m. The entry fee is $35, for more details contact Tom Dooper at 334-2013 or 334-2500, Lisa Pischel at 340-0471 or the library at 334-3490. Tickets may also be purchased through the “donate” button on our library website homepage.

A new book by Kristin Hannah is “Home Front.” Like many couples, Michael and Jolene Zarkades face the pressures of everyday life.
