Players from the Lincoln Stars Hockey Team Will Visit Lincoln City Libraries' Storytime in November
Lincoln City Libraries is partnering with the Lincoln Stars hockey team during the month of November. Players will visit certain preschool storytimes, read aloud to the children, and teach them a little about the game and the equipment.
"We are excited by the opportunity given to us by the Lincoln City Libraries for our Stars players to meet and interact with children from the community. Many of these children look up to the players as role models, and we feel it is our obligation to set a good example and encourage reading on a daily basis."

Lincoln City Libraries Offers Parent-Child Book Groups
Parent-Child book groups are a great way to encourage your kids to read, as well as share some special time together. Reading the same book as your child gives you a common bond and is a great conversation starter. Lincoln City Libraries offers parent-child book groups year round.
Information about current groups is available here.
