Knight for Hire

Today's Thursday Event featured Mr. Karl M. Kindt III of St. Louis, IL who told us about what knights wore and their code of chivalry.  He also told some interesting knight stories (with dragons).  How does he know so much about knights?  He IS a knight! 

Want to know more about what he talked about, see pictures of him riding his horse, or just learn more about knighthhood?  Visit his website

 Don't forget to check the Blog next week for some pictures of out past events, or stop by the Youth Services' desk to see even more in our changing picture frame.

Wow! Summer Reading is Off!

The Library's Summer Reading Program is off to a great start!  We have over 420 readers signed up to read for prizes!  Some story time classes are full and others are close to capacity.  Craft class sign ups have never been better.

We had our first Thursday event last week with the staff and Readers Theater members presenting a Midsummer Day Festival (Medieval style).  Needless to say, St. George and the Dragon were super star hits!

It is not too late to be a part of this fun filled program.  Come in to the Youth Services desk at the Lincoln Public Library Annex and we will help you get started.

Our Thursday events for the next two weeks are geared for school age readers.  Swords and Roses, a choreographed sword fighting team, will be here June 16, and a true knight in full armor will be our guest on June 23.

The Thursday Event for June 30 is appropriate for all family members.  Elsenpeter Marionettes will perform the story of "Sleeping Beauty!"

Don't miss out on the fun.  Castles, knights, Kings, Princesses, dragons, fantastic new books...what could be more thrilling!  And it is all free.  We only ask that you register for accurate planning.

Come see us today!
