Live Homework Help

Log on to to get help from a live tutor. The one-on-one help is available to kindergarten through adult learners in math, science, English, social studies and writing. Use your Lincoln Public Library card number to enter.

Family Reading Night

The library's annual evening of entertainment and stories will be from 6 to 7 on Thursday in the Annex. The event will begin with a performance by the library's readers' theater group of 8- to 12-year-olds. They are preparing to perform "Rumplestiltskin, Private Eye" and "The True Story of the Three Little Pigs." The library again welcomes its "Leader Readers" from the community, who will entertain families of all ages with their performance of a favorite story of their choice. This is a "warm and fuzzy" event for families to enjoy as we prepare for the long evenings that come with the approaching winter. Please call 732-5732 to register.

Tuesdays With Santa

There will be two opportunities to visit with Santa Claus in a warm place with a short line. His reindeer will bring him to the Annex on Dec. 2 and 9, 5-6:30 p.m. Finish up your list and be on your good behavior, and Santa will offer you a candy cane. The library will provide a free Polaroid photo on Santa's lap and an opportunity to write and mail a letter to the North Pole to "follow up" on your visit. Mom and Dad are welcome to bring their own camera to take lots of pictures of this important event. Please call 732-5732 to register so that enough supplies are on hand.
