Read to an Animal Afternoon

On Wednesday, November 18 from 2 - 4 PM, the Humane Society and the Lincoln Public Library Youth Services will team up for an unusual and really cool event. Children ages 6 and up can read a story to an adoptable pet in the Library Annex Community Room. Children can practice their reading skills and the animals will get some loving attention! Children can bring their own stories or choose from books we have selected.

All the pets are adoptable. Reading time may be limited depending on the number of readers. Register by calling the Youth Services Department at 732-5732.

After Hours Teen Mystery Event

Do you like C. S. I. or other crime solving shows on television? Do you like mysteries? Area teens are invited to participate in a "solve the mystery" evening at the Lincoln Public Library Annex on Friday, October 30 from 7 to 10 PM. "The Pharaoh's Curse" is a mystery game where teens get to play the parts of detectives and suspects. Costumes are encouraged but not mandatory. Prizes will be given and snacks will be provided. This event is sponsored by the Library's Youth Advisory Council.
Note: You must be a teen to attend this event. Plan to be at the Annex at 7:00, as the clues are cumulative!

Child I. D. Day

Lincoln Police Department is partnering with the Lincoln Public Library to offer parents I. D. packets for children ages 3 - 13 years. The event will be held Thursday, October 15 in the Library Annex. Parents are asked to bring their children to the library from 4 - 6 PM on that day where the child will have a photo taken and be fingerprinted. All information is then turned over to the parents to include in a packet to keep in a safe place at home. This information could save valuable time in the event of abductions.
