It can be used by anyone who has been trained. One-hour sessions can be scheduled by calling the library, 402-296-4154, ext. 24.

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.
