On Wednesday, the Potter Library held an open house to show the community the refurbished space, with a new coat of paint and other updates to serve the community. Librarian Jodi Enevoldsen and Library Board Member Alicia Trejo showed off the new features of the library, and detailed the history of the building.

One of the oldest remaining structures in Potter, the building located at 333 Chestnut Street has operated as the Post Office for Potter, and Bank, and was once home of the Potter Review newspaper. It is now a warm and inviting space that retains small town charm combined with high-tech features for the community to use.

Its main room has fiction and non-fiction sections and a great selection for children and middle readers. There is also a separate non-fiction room in the back of the library. The library features computers with internet stations for research, and also has a “magnified” computer provided the Nebraska Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired.

The centerpiece of new technology is a 3D Printer, which can be used to quickly create product models and prototypes as well as finished products. Anything from jewelry to footwear can be made with a 3D printer, which uses raw materials such as plastic, resins, metal and carbon fiber to create items with computer-aided design.

The library offers many programs, especially for children, including “1000 Books Before Kindergarten”, to give children a leg-up on reading prior to entering the public school system.

The Library's hours of operation are from 10 a.m. to noon, then 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 10 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesdays.
