Books are just the beginning in Nebraska libraries and Loup City Public Library is hosting a rotating Library Innovation Studio to offer their community the opportunity to explore, collaborate, create, learn, and invent. See some of the items that community members are making at: http://libraries.ne.gov/loupcity/2018/01/03/items-made-in-our-library-innovation-studio-you-can-make-something-too/.
Loup City Public Library is one of thirty libraries participating in the Library Innovation Studios: Transforming Rural Communities project. The Nebraska Library Commission along with partners University of Nebraska—Lincoln, Nebraska Innovation Studio, Nebraska Extension, and Regional Library Systems, are excited to see how the project, funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), can support community engagement and participatory learning experiences in small rural libraries across Nebraska. For more information see http://nlc.nebraska.gov/grants/innovationstudios. This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services [grant #LG-95-17-0046-17].
