Lincoln City Libraries will host performances by the Lincoln Choral Artists during the two days of Lincoln Public Schools fall break, October 15 & 16, 2015.
The 30-minute presentation entitled “Sing Me a Story” includes singing, instruments and dancing for K-3 students. Some of the stories will include characters often associated with Halloween.
Our featured resource for October is lynda.com, which provides instructional videos on thousands of topics, including technology, business, design, and more. Sign in with your library card number and PIN to get started. You can then set up your personalized account to manage your playlists and progress through the tutorials.
Local therapy dog organization, Healing Heart Therapy Dogs, provides this wonderful opportunity for children ages 6 to 12 who have experienced reading difficulties or who just need to practice their reading. Therapy teams are partnered with children who polish their skills by reading aloud to a dog. Children read to dogs in 20-minute shifts, once a week for six weeks.
The session begins the week of October 5 and runs through the week of November 14, 2015.
Pre-registration is required. Please register by contacting the person listed at the branch where you wish to register your child.
