Summer Reading

Summer Reading 2020
During COVID-19

We are resurrecting a different previous Summer Reading Program theme for each week beginning June 3, 2020. It will all be online because we are not cleared for group meetings yet. We still have restrictions in place for visiting the library, please visit https://www.ci.north-platte.ne.us/library/faq for more details. Sessions are recorded and activities are converted to photographs with additional postings on Facebook.

The primary platform is Facebook on the Library’s page at https://facebook.com/NorthPlattePL, however we will archive videos and activities here on this page for access by those without Facebook. The activities and videos are targeted for grades K through grade 5, however since they are posted online – anyone is welcome to view and participate. Live broadcasting of prize winners will be on Facebook Live, we are hoping to figure out the technology to bring that video back to here after it posts live on Facebook.

We are aware that using this platform is not as open as it could be, but we are very much re-learning everything we do in order to keep us and our community safer by adhering to social distance guidelines. In many cases that means learning “new to us” tools and technology by changing how we even think about our programming. Please be kind as we muddle through this summer the best we can because we love our patrons and miss our kiddos and we are working hard to help make your summer just a little better.
