Game Night Transformed into Game-arama Beginning September 19

Have you heard of Sudoku but don’t know what it is? Have you wondered what “adult coloring” is but didn’t know if you’d like it? Now you have a chance to try new games, indulge in old ones, or just gather for social time at the Plattsmouth Public Library on the third Tuesday of every month, 6:00-7:30 pm, in the auditorium. The first Game-arama will be September 19.

The library is expanding its monthly Game Nights to include crossword puzzles, Sudoku, word search, adult coloring, and jigsaw puzzles. You can still play card games or board games supplied by the library or brought from home, but you can also try your hand at something new. Don’t know what Sudoku is? Someone will be here to help you.

The event is free and open to all ages. Bring snacks to share if you'd like; coffee and water will be provided.

Library to Receive Innovation Studios Equipment

Thanks to the input of several people and organizations in the community, the Nebraska Library Commission has selected the Plattsmouth Library to participate in the Library Innovation Studios Project! That means that the library will be receiving a 3D printer, laser cutter, vinyl cutter, CNC router, embroidery machine, Arduino, Makey Makey, soldering machine, video creating equipment, and more for a period of 20 weeks. The equipment is tentatively scheduled to arrive in mid-November.

This three-year project was made possible with a grant of $530,732 from the Institute of Museum and Library Services awarded to the Nebraska Library Commission in partnership with University of Nebraska—Lincoln, Nebraska Innovation Studio, Nebraska Extension, and Regional Library Systems. The project allows small libraries to use a variety of equipment to determine the need and interest in the community. At the end of the project, the library will evaluate what has garnered the most interest and plan to acquire that equipment on a permanent basis.

More information on the project can be found on the NLC website. If interested in being trained on the equipment, please contact Karen Mier at 402-296-4154 x23 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

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.
