Community Book Discussion GroupsOne of the main goals of One Book - One Lincoln is to encourage residents to read and openly discuss the same book. Talking about great literature with others often adds richness and depth to the experience of reading. We encourage you to join other members of the community in discussing Destiny of the Republic during September, October, November and December. Everyone is welcome; for most groups, there will be no need to pre-register.[NOTE: The list of discussion opportunities may continue to grow as we hear from additional book discussion groups. If your private book group would be open to having guests for a One Book - One Lincoln discussion, please contact the Lincoln City Libraries at 441-8592 (Layne Pierce) or 441-8575 (Carol Swanson) to let us know that we can list you on this page! Please revisit this page for updated information as One Book - One Lincoln continues.]
So you want to have a One Book - One Lincoln discussion group, but you don't have a discussion leader? This Fall and Winter, Lincoln City Libraries staff will be available to book groups, extension clubs, organizations and businesses interested in hosting a discussion group. For further information, call Lincoln City Libraries, 441-8592 (Layne Pierce) or 441-8575 (Carol Swanson).
