Holiday Movies Every Wednesday

Enjoy a Christmas movie every Wednesday through December 19 in the library auditorium. Each week, a different family movie will be played at 1:00 pm. The movies aren’t the classic ones that are aired every year and they aren't children's movies, so you can enjoy a movie you’ve probably never seen and get in the holiday spirit. Free popcorn will be provided!

December 12 - The Christmas Candle
December 19 - A Christmas Memory

the patio is finished!

Visit Our Patio!

The library has a patio in the back of the building! It was constructed between June 27 and July 5, 2012, with bricks from Main Street, and is shaded by a pergola. You can see how the patio took shape by looking at these pictures. It was made possible with a grant from the Cass County Visitors Promotion Committee and donations from the Plattsmouth Public Library Foundation and the Friends of the Library. The city donated the bricks. It's a great place to stop and read a book or to listen to storytime, at least when the weather is nice. Thanks to Midwest Outdoor Design for installing it.
