The NPPL Foundation has decided to CANCEL this year’s Cemetery Tour.
Library inventory, additional NE150 programming, actor schedule conflicts, and minor renovation closures have impacted timelines to the point we did not think we could do justice to our annual cemetery tour event. Rather than put on a poor event, we have chosen to cancel it for this year.
To our loyal cemetery tourists…this event is slated to return in 2018 so please keep watching.
The NPPL Foundation will have their annual book gift basket sales starting in October. The Friends of the Library fall book sale will be October 26-28, 2017.
NPPL Foundation is a featured organization fund through Mid-Nebraska Community Foundation. Consider making a donation to our organization or one of your choosing on this day. Your dollars working locally help so many! Click the logo below or go to https://www.northplattegivingday.org.
