2013 One Book - One Lincoln nominations now open!

January 28, 2013 by sdc
After a Fall/Winter filled with discussions and programming surrounding our 2012 One Book selection, Destiny of the Republic, we're happy to announce that the nomination process has begun for the 2013 One Book - One Lincoln.

Interested readers are encouraged to visit the 2013 Nomination Form online (just click the link), or stop in at any Lincoln City Libraries location to fill out the nomination form on paper. Nominations will be accepted through March 1st, after which the list of nominated titles will be given to a selection committee, which will narrow down the list to three finalists, which will be announced in the Spring. The public will then be invited to vote on their favorite of the three finalists, and the winning title will be announced in the Fall.

Meanwhile, the 2012 One Book - One Lincoln isn't quite done -- there's still one more event scheduled, at several different branch libraries in February: Troubled Times: 1860-1880 -- Your Family History Connections. This genealogy workshop will be held at three locations on three consecutive Sundays in February. Seating is limited, so registration is required. Click the link above for more information!

And, as always, the archive of past One Book - One Lincoln information is available on the libraries' web site. Click this link for the general One Book reference page!
