  1. 1000 Books Before Kindergarten

    August 1, 2021, 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM

    The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless! The goal is to read 1,000 books before your child starts kindergarten. Does it sound hard? Not really if you think about it. If you read just one book a night, you'll have read 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years. If you consider that most children start kindergarten at around five years of age, you have more time than you think! Visit the youth area anytime to pick up a booklet. This is a work at your own pace program. Prizes will be awarded to participants when they reach 500 and 1,000 books.

  12. Author James Kimble: Prairie Forge

    August 18, 2021, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

    What did Henry Doorly, Cornhusker football, and the patriotic spirit of Nebraskans have to do with the Allied victory in World War II? Find out in this talk from James J. Kimble, who will go behind the scenes of his research for "Prairie Forge," the 2021 One Book One Nebraska title. You’ll step back into the dramatic home front in 1942, witness the scrap metal disaster that nearly derailed the Allied war effort, and see for yourself just why Nebraska was so central to winning the greatest war in history.
