The Foundation for Lincoln City Libraries has unveiled a campaign highlighting the value of libraries today.
Selecting a great book for all of Lincoln to read is the first step in kicking off the thirteenth year of the One Book-One Lincoln community reading program. You can help by nominating a title. A committee of community readers will rely on these nominations to select the winning book for 2015! Nomination forms are available at all Lincoln City Libraries locations or online here. The deadline for nominations for this year's program is February 23.
Free Community Tax Preparation, sponsored and staffed by VITA and AARP trained volunteers, is available at some Lincoln City Libraries. Schedule and locations are available here.
