Library Mom's Night Out Program (LMNOP): Library Mom's Night Out Program (LMNOP) is an after-hours, child-free gathering where you can socialize, learn something new and take time for yourself. This month Tataya Radtke, owner of Yoga Body and Balance, will demonstrate simple yoga techniques. Dress comfortably and bring a yoga mat or towel if you would like to join in. Come for the program or just spend time in the library - your choice, your evening! Child care will not be available at this event.
Teen Read Week was October 12-18, but we're celebrating it all month! Teens (middle school and high school age) are invited to visit any Lincoln City Libraries location during October, check out a book (of any kind - traditional book, an eBook, audiobook, graphic novel, etc.) and enter a drawing to win prizes! Be sure to take a look at Susan's Teen Read Week Book List!
