Do you like riddles? Do like books? Have you read a LOT of children's books? If you answered "yes" to these questions I have a suggestion for some fun. We just added Spot the Plot: A Riddle Book of Book Riddles by J. Patrick Lewis to our collection. Inside is page after page of riddles about children's stories. Some are simple; some are complex. Illustrations can help add to the fun as well. Answers are in the back of the volume in case a riddle has you stumped. Set it up as a game for the family before bedtime. Even young ones will be able to answer a few.

We have received a number of fun and interesting titles recently. Be sure to come by the Library over Christmas break and check out the new book displays. We will help you find a story that is just what you are looking to read on these long, cold winter days!

Happy Holidays!

Family Reading Night

November was a busy month at the Library, with Family Reading Night having a great turn out of participants. The Readers' Theatre performed three skits and Reader Leaders from Lincoln Community High School came to read stories to our families. Everyone got to choose a book to take home as the evening drew to a close. If you have not attended a Family Reading night yet, save the date for next year! It is always held on the third Thursday in November. Hope to see you next year!

Tuesdays with Santa

Santa visited the Library the first two Tuesdays of December. Many of our young patrons came to whisper their Christmas wishes in his ear, write out their lists for his mailbox, and make a paper chain for our Community Room. Moms, Dads, Grandparents, etc. took lots of pictures and received a special frame in which to keep their memory photo. And of course, everyone left with a candy cane and special wishes from our staff.

Wanted: Unwanted Lego Blocks

Are you cleaning out closets and toy shelves to get ready for new toys that will be arriving soon? Have your children/grandchildren grown up/moved out and you find yourself with Lego building blocks you do not want any more? The Library would love to have them! We are asking for donations of Lego building blocks to use for our Kids and Parent Lego Tournament which we hope to hold the last Saturday of January. Just bring in your donations (in boxes or bags) to the Youth Services desk in the Library Annex. Lego building blocks only, please. Thanks!
