Lincoln honors its library’s 20th year

LINCOLN COMMUNITY MEMBERS parade down the town’s main road on Saturday, Feb. 1, as part of Lincoln’s annual Hill Country Holiday. This year’s event marked the 20th anniversary of Lincoln’s new library. Three library directors — Wendy McIntosh, Linda Norton and Debi Gray — follow the banner.

LINCOLN — Lincoln regularly celebrates Hill Country Holiday on the first weekend in February. This year’s event, presented by Lincoln Sports, was themed “Love Your Library.” The theme was chosen in honor of the 20th anniversary of the Lincoln Library, built to replace the one destroyed by a flood in 1998. The Lincoln Co-op Pre-School and Lincoln Little League also participated in the events.
The Saturday event started with a parade of folks from the pre-school, and library, Lincoln Sports and the fire department. This year all three past and present library directors were present: Linda Norton, Debi Gray and Wendy McIntosh. Twenty years ago, some of the books were moved into the new building in a parade of children pulling red wagons filled with books.  Some folks pulled wagons to honor that memory.
The library’s open house included soup and baked goods for lunch, wonderful folk music, photographs from the last 20 years and a historical timeline for the library. Outside there was an ice rink for the kids, a bonfire and lots of space for enjoying the afternoon. It was well attended, and by all accounts a great success and enjoyable community event.
There were two dinners, a pancake breakfast and a variety show Saturday night to round out the events.
