Tuesdays with Santa

Santa will be returning to the Library the first two Tuesdays in December: December 1 and 8 from 5:00 to 6:30. The Library has been sponsoring this event for many years. Children may sit on Santa's lap and write letters for Santa's mailbox. Each will receive a candycane along with a Christmas card frame for a special picture. Unfortunately, Polaroid has discontinued their instamatic film, so we will not be taking pictures of everyone this year. We encourage adults to bring their own cameras or camera phones to take pictures. Don't forget to browse the Christmas book selections!

Please be sure to call 732-5732 to register for this event.

Why Must we Register for Events at the Library?

One of the questions we are often asked is why registration is necessary to attend events at the Library, especially when they are free. The reasons are not always simple. Since we have a small staff, we need to be sure we have people here to help with the event. When planning an event, we need to determine which room will best suit the number of people attending. Of course, when we offer a craft, refreshments, or other materials such as prizes, we need to have some idea of how many to purchase. So, please do your part and give us a call at 732-5732. It only takes a minute and really helps us make the events better for the readers.

Upcoming November Events

2009 may be winding to a close, but the Youth Services Department at the Lincoln Public Library is still working to bring you some great events in November and December.

Wednesday, November 18 from 2 - 4 PM, the Logan County Humane Society will be at the Annex Community Room with adoptable pets. (Think about giving a wonderful home to one of these lovable animals, or think about Christmas giving!) Children 2nd grade and older will be given the opportunity to read a story to one of the animals while they are here. Register by calling 732-5732.

Thursday, November 19 is our annual Family Reading Night from 5:30 - 6:30 PM. Our Readers' Theatre will perform and then we will break into groups to hear stories. Rumor has it that we will have a few high school leaders here that night! This is a perfect opportunity to check out all the new books we have gotten into the department recently. Be sure to register!

For grades 6 - 8 students looking for something to occupy their time the day after Thanksgiving, we will have a mystery event on November 27 from 2 - 4 PM in the Annex. Refereshments will be served. Bring a friend. Advance registrationis required. Call 732-5732.

Teen Mystery Night at the Library

On October 30, teens participated as detectives and suspects in solving the case of "The Pharaoh's Curse." The prom queen had been pushed down the school steps shortly after she had been crowned. Who did it? The best friend, the school nerd, the Home Ec teacher, or someone else? Teens inspected the crime scenes and solved the mystery! Look for future teen activities at the library, or join the Youth Advisory Council to help us plan them.
