Lena Kulhman, South Jackson Elementary School, participated in the new virtual book review, Czarina Lena’s Reading Palace.

Mobile hotspots will be available soon at the Nicholson Public Library. The Mobile hotspot can provide wireless internet access for up to 10 devices.

"You will not be able to put hotspots on hold," library manager Rhonda O'Keefe states. "Hotspot check out will be limited to one hotspot per household at a time."

Patrons will be required to sign a Hotspot Lending Agreement.

“We are excited to offer this new service to our patrons” said O’Keeffe.

Patrons must be 18 years of age, live in Jackson county with a current address on file (no P.O. Boxes), and have no fines above $10. The Hotspot Lending Agreement will have more information. A valid PINES library card and a current government-issued photo ID must be presented at checkout.


New to the virtual line up this year, is Czarina Lena’s Reading Palace. Each month the glittering Czarina Lena will review a children’s book.

"Grab your sword, shield or scepter and join our petite princess as she rates a variety of books on her crown scale," O'Keefe states. "The Czarina will also share tips and secrets on how she chooses books."


Get ready to “Sparkle” with Lady Sherri and her weekly Enchanted Story Time. Each week Lady Sherri will read a different book and show children how to make a themed craft. The craft kits are available at the Nicholson Public Library.

Ms. Irma hosts the virtual Spanish Story Time each month, hora de cuentos en espanol.
