After a short holiday break, the second session will begin January 11 and will feature puzzles and games. The third session begins in March and features LittleBits creations. Call Kirsten Wood at 402-296-4154 x21 if you have any questions.

Of course, we couldn't have done it without the help of people who contributed money. The most recent donations came from the Plattsmouth Rotary and Lions Clubs and Pat's Kids. Thank you!

Take a look at more pictures of our new space on our Facebook page.

If you'd like to help fund the next phase, please make checks payable to the Plattsmouth Public Library Foundation and mail them to 401 Avenue A, Plattsmouth. The next phase includes painting and re-tiling the stairwell and kitchen.

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.
