You will have the chance to win one of our snowman prizes. One entry, per day, per child.

The library will provide all of the needed supplies except for a hammer and scissors. Limited to 50 participants age 12–18.
Author and photographer Jeff Barnes shares the images and stories of Nebraska’s lesser-known historical monuments, placed far off the beaten path. This is our state’s “hidden history,” with long-forgotten stories and rarely seen landscapes, such as the impact of glaciers on our community monuments, or how Nebraska’s first marker nearly went to the bottom of the Missouri River and – once placed at its permanent site – still disappeared for fifty years.
