On August 25, 2018. Catch the trolley at the Library for a ride to the location beginning at 8am. Trolley will make a trip about every 45 minutes, last trip about 10:15. Tom Flowers, local bander will show how he catches and bands the birds including information about local species. See some of your favorite birds up close and personal with this outdoor program. This program is in conjunction with the Backyard Wilderness Exhibit currently at the Library. Check out the exhibit while you wait on the trolley!
Your Meade Public Library was chosen from Libraries across the US to host an interactive exhibit centered around getting people, especially families, outside and exploring! Backyard Wilderness will be here through September and is free! Stop in and take a look. In connection with the exhibit we’ve got a Bird Banding Demonstration planned for August 25, 2018 and a BioBlitz of the local flora and fauna for September 8, 2018. Check in often for updates on these activities. What is in your Backyard?

We are lucky to have the High School Art students’ entries from the High Plains League Art Show in the Pinnick Room. Mrs. Lynnette Gonzalez, USD 226 Art Instructor and her students have been very gracious in the last three years to allow MPL to display their pieces. Again this year we will give a People’s Choice Award to the favorite piece of the show. Stop by and see the amazing art and vote for your favorite! On display until April 24th, so don’t delay!
In our lighted display case we are highlighting Car and Truck banks collected by Jack Shelton throughout his life. Cheryle Shelton was willing to bring in some of the many banks he collected for our case. There are some intriguing pieces on display!

We had 29 entries for our Logo Contest. It was a tough decision for our Judges as they first had to find a winner in the three divisions and then determine who would receive which place. Entries were placed in sealed envelopes with the artist information on another slip of paper that was placed in another envelope by age division. At the end of the contest the envelopes with informations slips were sealed and opened by the Library Board after the judges were finished with their deliberating. The judges did not know who had submitted the entries, just the age division the entries were in. Congratulations to all those who entered our contest, there were a lot of creative entries brought in! A big THANK YOU to Carol Hewitt and Kim Stevens who agreed to be our judges!
Stop in the Library and see all the entries. We’ll have them up for a couple of weeks.
