Story Times

Monday, September 8th 2014 - 10:15 am - 11:45 am at Yankton Library
515 Walnut

Things are gearing up at the Yankton Community Library for a new round of story times for our youngest patrons.  This fall we are offering twelve week sessions of preschool and toddler story times beginning the week of September 8.

Preschool story time is for three, four, and five-year olds.  These thirty minute sessions include rhymes, songs, stories, and a related craft project.  Children are introduced to new books, songs, rhymes and other children.  The sessions are designed with a focus on early literacy skills and fun.  Attending story time is a great way to foster a love of books, reading, and the library.  Preschool story time is offered on Monday evenings at 6:30 p.m. and Wednesday and Thursday mornings at 10:15 a.m.

Toddler story time is for one, two, and three-year olds.  Sessions include lots of music and movement along with several short books.  Parents and caregivers must be present and are encouraged to participate along with their children.  It makes it more fun for everyone!  Tuesdays are toddler days with sessions at 10:15 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.  Please note that both sessions are the same books and activities.

To help us plan, we ask that children register for both story time and toddler time.  Please stop at the library, 515 Walnut Street, to pick up a brochure explaining more about our preschool and toddler story times.  A registration form can be found on the brochure.  Simply fill it out and drop it off at the circulation desk.


For further information, please call the library at 668-5276.

Farmers Market

Wednesday, September 10th 2014 - 9:00 am - 12:00 pm at Open Lot
702 E. Park Ave

The Northeast Nebraska Resource Conservation & Development (RC&D) Council will be bringing a Farmers Market to town beginning June 11th. Their vacant lot located at 702 E. Park Ave., east Highway 20, Plainview will be the site for the market. This particular location offers great highway access, is a highly visible spot and provides a shady area where the vendors can set up their booths.

Jim and Pearl Laycock, local entrepreneurs and vegetable growers, will be the market managers. They are well-versed in the operation of a farmers market and have participated in the Pierce market for a number of years.

The market will run through the growing season which should end approximately September 30th. Hours of operation will be Wednesdays from 9 a.m. until noon. Those interested in becoming vendors or who would like more information may contact the Laycocks at 402-582-3334, or the RC&D office at 402-582-4866 or via email

The local foods movement is important to the RC&D because the rural area being served is highly dependent on agriculture. It is widely accepted that locally grown food and fresh, whole foods are best for health and are the best value in purchasing food.

This project will hopefully grow new farmers’ market vendors and increase local food access for area citizens. Anything that can be done to encourage citizens to take advantage of purchasing and eating the food grown right in their own locale is a plus – not only for them, but for those growing it.
