Condolences to Bruce and Arlan Liesemeyer on the loss of their
mother, Lois. She was one of the nicest women you will ever meet.
One again dogs are the subject of conversation: please
remember that once your pet leaves your property,
it needs to be on a leash!
The Library hosted a "Kids Open House" at the Community
Center on Sunday.
The event showcased the 75+ new hardcover kids books
recently purchased with grant money received from the LIBRI
Foundation. Over 25 kids attended and enjoyed the activities.
Kayla Gripenstroh shows the crafts she made.
The craft table was manned by Jillian and Julia Bennett.
Games were led by Janet Oelke and Jen Foley.
Snacks were provided by Leigh Luff.
Sharon painting Blake Bennett's face
Face painting provided by Sharon Demaree and was very
popular with a steady line of young faces waiting patiently
to be painted.
A special guest, the "Cat in the Hat" (Laramie Werner), attended
and led story time for the kids. Fun was had by all!!!
Thanks to all who participated.
Do any of you have annuals (from any Otoe County High

in the Resource Room and duplicates would be given to the
Otoe County Museum of Memories.
