With Deepest_Sympathy

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.

Thanks to all who participated.

Do any of you have annuals (from any Otoe County High

School) that you would like to get rid of? We have need of them

in the Resource Room and duplicates would be given to the

Otoe County Museum of Memories.

Ron Wenninghoff and family have put together a DVD 

chronicling the first year of the new Unadilla school building.

There are interviews with teachers, students, the 8th grade

graduation, school picnic, and much more. It will be playing in

the Library on Groundhog Day for your enjoyment. If you see

Ron, please thank him for all his work on creating this

wonderful memory!

Did you know on January 31, 1940, the first Social Security
