Lincoln news for Jul. 9

LINCOLN — It’s so great to be back writing the Lincoln News! I hope you all have been and continue to be well. I know many activities have been canceled, but if you have an event that is happening in Lincoln, I’d love to know about it.
Congratulations to Jacob and his LCS classmates on their promotion to seventh grade. Good luck to all of you next year. I’d also like to congratulate all of the Lincoln Class of 2020 high school graduates. Well done!
The Lincoln Library is continuing with front porch pickup. Email the library at [email protected] or call 453-2665 with your next book choice or set up your account and place a hold from home.    
Return your books to the drop box anytime. Keep in mind that circulation will be slower than usual. Books that are received in the drop box stay in the box untouched for seven days. The receiving box is pulled aside, labeled with the date, and replaced with another empty box. After a week, the as yet untouched books are wiped with disinfectant, checked in and then shelved.
All 30 DCF books for the new school year are now available at the library. Don’t forget to sign up for the summer reading program as a way to make reading goals, track reading and win prizes. There will also be giveaways, book reviews and some pick-up crafts on the front porch. Contact the library to sign up.
This month’s community book read is “Between the World and Me” by Ta-Nehisi Coates. The book discussion will be held on Monday, July 27. The library has plenty of copies available so you are encouraged to read it even if you aren’t planning to discuss it.
FROM THE TOWN CLERK: Our Vermont State Primary Election is on Tuesday, Aug. 11, 2020, and early voting has begun. The General Election will be on Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020. Please submit your absentee ballot requests as soon as possible, especially for military or overseas voters. We encourage everyone to vote absentee for the safety of all.

Until next time … Be Kind. Be Well. Stay Safe.
