Summer Reading Thank Yous

Where has this month gone? Summer sure was fun at the library and we are looking forward to some more fun this fall. Before we get to that though we need to say thanks to some businesses who helped us have a successful summer reading program. Thank you to Cornerstone Coffee Haus for the drinks to go along with those fun swirly straws, to Sweet Pea’s Bakery for the sweet treats for our BEE-NGO players, Freddy’s for making pizza for our bonus readers at the Nerf party, and Haverkamp Dairy for the grooviest shades for our young readers to wear. And as always, thank you to the parents, grandparents, and caregivers who diligently read to or encouraged our littles to keep reading.  


It’s July! That means the downhill slide to complete the Summer Reading Challenge. Don’t delay! The last day to turn in your child’s Reading Record or your BEE-NGO card, if you are an adult, is Monday July 31. That is Nemaha County Fair weekend, and we know we there is too much going on to remember to go to the library.

This year, everyone receives their prize on the spot! Children get a fun straw, a coupon for a drink at the Cornerstone Coffee Haus and a pair of cool sunglasses donated by Nemaha County Dairy Farmers. How fun is that?!

Adults get a sweet treat from Sweet Pea’s Bakery when they get a BINGO on their BEE-NGO card and bring it into the library.

REMINDER: Coupons expire Saturday August 5!

If you didn’t get a cool teal library tote for signing up your children at the beginning of Summer Reading, they are now available for purchase at just $1.00 each. They are handy for books, groceries, going to the pool, taking lunch to work. Whatever you need it for, it will be there for you.
