The Lincoln Library is open! Come on in; we are limiting the number of patrons to 10 at any given time and so far, it has worked out wonderfully well!

As we stumble into June, hopefully, we can find some semblance of normal. The staff of Lincoln Library is in the middle of pooling ideas, searching out crafts, creating games, and gathering awards and prizes. Although many libraries are doing their summer reading program online, the young patrons I have talked to are not interested in participating in a program on their computers. Soooooooo, we are going to move forward with an on-site program that, optimistically, will be fun-filled and memory-making, while staying within the guidelines!

We will be doing sign-up for our Summer Reading Program during the week of June 22, Monday through Friday! Sign-up will take place outside under the porch of the building just north of us (the Mason building) which we purchased last August. We will also be doing the program outside this year! On Tuesdays, we will have a program at 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM for children 5 and up. These programs will be the same and will give us the opportunity to see whether patrons prefer coming in the mornings or afternoons. We will be doing programming for 4 and under on Thursdays at 10:00 AM. We will also be doing some crafting on Wednesday mornings at 10:00 AM for those old enough to independently sit and participate.

With the events being held outdoors, we will be able to include refreshments into the activities of the days! We would delight in and welcome all donations of small bottles of water, and other individually packaged drinks and snacks. We would also be happy to help you out if you are looking to rehome crafts of any kind.

We are excited about seeing all of our patrons and are looking forward to spending some time with everyone through the summer reading program. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, we would love to hear them.
