Adult Library Program, Tails and Tales

April 4 through May 16

Our annual adult library program, Tails & Tales, runs April 4 through May 16. Track your reading, attend our virtual Humanities Nebraska speaker series and other guest instructors, participate in take-n-make projects, and play virtual book trivia games for a chance to win weekly prize bags and grand prize baskets!


Register at Bellevue.Beanstack.org. This is where you track your reading, input the “secret codes” you receive for participating in our fun activities and attending any of our guest speakers and instructors, and where you enter the prize drawings of your choice.


Read: Read any YA and adult-level books or audiobooks from the Library or from Nebraska Overdrive (our ebook and e-audiobook app). Earn a prize ticket for every book you read!

Speakers and guest instructors: We have everything from speakers on Nebraska history to music and poetry, yoga instruction, the Bellevue Fire Department, and a virtual author visit with corresponding Monarch butterfly seedball workshop! Registration is required for each event at www.bellevuelibrary.org in our event calendar in order to receive the Zoom link.

Take-n-make kits: Explore your creative side as you learn to create art projects, make stuff for the home and bath, and more! Space is limited. Register for your take-n-make kits at www.bellevuelibrary.org. Registration opens the Sunday before each project’s pickup date.

Virtual book trivia games: Play our fun and nostalgic book trivia games for a code to redeem for a grand prize drawing ticket! Game links will be available on our Facebook page and our website.

In-person and community events: Play Pub Trivia at DJ’s Dugout in Bellevue, join one of our book clubs, or attend a Tai Chi session! Space is limited, masks requested, social distancing encouraged; registration is required at www.bellevuelibrary.org. We will also have a weekly book scavenger hunt on Tuesdays—search our shelves for the wrapped book, which is yours to keep!
