Lincoln news for May 12

LINCOLN — The Lincoln Library is publishing a booklet called Exploring Lincoln. This booklet was accomplished with the help of many community members, and was inspired by the Hill County Hunt booklet of 30 years ago. It includes seven different family-friendly activities, including a letter quest, a ramble and a tour. Get outside, learn about our town, and see how you can get involved! This project was funded by a grant from the American Library Association through Libraries Transforming Communities.

The library is busy preparing for its annual book and plant sale, which will be held Saturday, May 28 in conjunction with the Town Wide Yard Sale. The library will be accepting book donations (one box per patron) or plants anytime after Monday, May 23. If you would like some help dividing or transporting plants, contact Wendy at 453-2665 or [email protected].
