This November, beginning on Friday, November 1 the library will offer patrons the opportunity to clear their library fines through the program, Food for Fines. Consider donating unexpired, non-perishable food that will then be donated to the Food Pantry at the Niobrara Senior Center. Clear your library account and help to stock this valuable resource which is available throughout the year to those in need. One unexpired, non-perishable food item is the equivalent of $1 of library fine; this opportunity does not apply to lost materials and will end on Friday, November 29th.
Sunday, November 3 the musical duo, Bettman and Halpin will perform at the library at 1:30 p.m. This musical program is sure to entertain and is free and open to the public.
