Great Plains Prints are Great!

Has winter's wrath got you feeling a little cooped up? Do you have a bit of wanderlust? If so, make the short trek over to the LLC for a virtual tour around the state.

The LLC Rotating Art Gallery now features a dozen beautiful prints by artist Katie Nieland, which were commissioned by the Great Plains Ecotourism Coalition. These prints are designed to showcase the natural beauty of Nebraska, and are modeled after the iconic 1930s WPA posters. Each print has a placard explaining a bit about the work. The Rotating Art Gallery is free and open during regular library hours. For more information about these lovely prints, see Shawn Hartman's article. [Read more].
Gardening Project Bears Fruit

The LLC has been hard at work for the past four years revitalizing the print collection. It was a long process, but we are in the final stages of our weeding/gardening project. For more information about this process (and the origin of gardening), check out Pam Newberg's article. [Read more]. 
And Then There Were Three

The library is starting the semester with three librarians. Matthew Perrie turned in his notice last month to accept a job in the Big Apple. The LLC will hire a new Electronic Resources Librarian soon. In the meantime, the librarians are covering his duties. For more information, see Christine Fullerton's article. [Read More].
