Summer Reading Program
May 29-July 21
The theme for the Lincoln Public Library Summer Reading Program
is "Reading Is So Delicious!" The main program for preschoolers and
grade school children runs from May 29 through July 21. Along with
reading for prizes, the library will also offer story times for
children ages 6 months through 2 years, 3 to 4 years, and 5 to 7
years old. Craft classes for 8- to 12-year-olds and Thursday morning
entertainment for the entire family are also planned. Sign-up week
is May 29 through June 2, when there will be food-themed games for
the kids. If you are unable to come to the library that week, come
in as soon as possible to allow the most time to read and
participate in all the activities. All library activities are free
and open to the public; however, advance registration is required
for accurate planning. All elementary students in Lincoln schools
will be given an information packet to take home.
The reading program for teens runs from June 4 through July 14.
