Vacation starts at the library—July 12, 2013
Vacation. The word is used almost everyday in my office, at the grocery store, and even at home. Summer is the time for suitcases, sandals, and sunscreen. The Hastings Public Library has several books about vacation spots, vacation guides, and even novels with vacation as the plot. My husband and I have friends who talked about their annual Nebraska family vacation just this weekend. To them the act of getting away - even if it is only a few hours from home - and being with their extended family is the perfect destination for their vacation. A week of relaxation, laughter, and enjoying what Nebraska has to offer. We have a book or two about that.
The Library has plenty to offer in books, digital and traditional magazines, and a plethora of other mediums. The library sees over 400 patrons each day and we aim to be a respite - break from the everyday. If you haven’t planned your vacation come visit the library and find out what is happening. Have a Kindle or a Nook? We can help you add a book for that car ride, plane trip, or a day at the lake or pool. Can’t get away from the summer and the heat is bothersome? Then escape to the Library and enjoy the air conditioning while you check out a book or movie to take you to another world.
Hastings Public Library has been dreaming of a renovation, a new destination within the same four walls. Our dream is a new face to our great place. We want to be a destination the people of Adams County can enjoy, experience, and use to expand their horizon. Destination Renovation is a raffle brought to the community by the Hastings Public Library Foundation. Enter for you chance at a $6,000.00 dream vacation giveaway sponsored by Jerry Spady Chevrolet GMC Cadillac and Morrison Enterprises.
