By the time you read this Christmas Celebration of 2012 will be past. And we look forward to New Year 2013, hoping it will be more peaceful. The library staff wishes everyone joy, peace, goodness in life and prosperity. I hope you all are more prepared than I am. My letter is typed and the cards and addresses are sitting there, so will get them in the mail right after Christmas

As the New Year arrives, plans are being made to schedule computer classes, Kindle classes, painting classes, potentially ‘Gun Safety for Women’, a crafting class or two, scrapbooking and possibly getting a book club off the ground. In April, plans are being made to have money management classes. If you have interest in any of these, please let us know. There is also the possibility of getting some more historical projects accomplished. Volunteers are needed for this.

Story Time will resume on January 9 with “Curious George”. Please bring your children ages 3-5 for the fun books and activities that Leta provides. Early childhood reading jumpstarts children for school and a productive life. Also please encourage others you know to bring their children.

The library is open to receiving donations of any local history books such as Class Yearbooks, Kimball County or any other county history books, diaries, photographs, family histories, very old phone books, local club histories, etc.

The library is also open to receiving donations of musical CDs, audio CDs, and family movie DVDs. If you are cleaning out old ‘stuff’, please keep the library in mind.
