NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - All summer long, the North Platte Public Library is hosting many events.

The first of many is the Summer Reading for Preschoolers program that will occur every Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.

On Wednesdays, there will be a medieval themed event called, ”Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Come One, Come All!” The theme for grade school children is ”Dragon’s Tale Tails & Tales” from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

On Thursdays at 4 p.m., teens (ages 12-18) are having summer reading sessions too.

Library Director Cecelia Lawrence said that this will help keep the kids engaged in reading during the summer.

“We want to keep our kids reading all summer long, which is really the bottom line,” Lawrence said.

Friday at 12 p.m. , the library will host an adult group called, “Becoming American Swedish Pioneers in Nebraska”. This event is going to presented by former Library Director Laureen Riedesel of Beatrice. Riedesel has presented to the NPPL twice before.

“We are excited for her to come back, because they were promised free land to build on,” Lawrence said.

Lawrence said that people who are interested can register online either through the City of North Platte website or social media pages.

Parents are urged to bring your child to the session that matches the grade they just finished in May 2021.
