Nebraska has not only a rich tradition in literature but also a rich, less-publicized tradition in music. Dan Holtz interweaves songs, accompanied on guitar and harmonica, with excerpts from works by Willa Cather, John Neihardt, Mari Sandoz and Bess Streeter Aldrich. In a narrative from about 1850 to 1904, he tells the stories of the people who came to and through early Nebraska, the pioneers who crossed the overland trails, the settlers and the Native Americans. Dan plays original songs he composed as well as historic folk songs from the late 1800’s.

All Brown Bag Programs are free to the public.  Please call the library for seat reservations  at 308-535-8036 ext 3310. Bring your own lunch; coffee and water will be provided.

January Preschool Story Time

lib-icon-prekPreschool Story TimeGeorge & Gracie Puppets

Preschool Story Time is a read-aloud and follow interactive time. It’s where friends are made, imaginations grow and independence is earned. We know every parent and caregiver would love to watch their kids engage, sometimes it’s best for the child to learn those skills in a supervised non-threatening environment without the parent present.

Bring your preschooler(s) to Story Time
and enjoy a little library time for yourself!
