Would You Like to Be a Summer Reading Program Volunteer?
Sign up starting April 15 at the Lincoln City Libraries location of your choice! Here is a checklist and training schedule and an application and permission form. If you are volunteering at Gere Branch Library, you will also need this volunteer contract.
Creative teens advise library staff about materials, programs and services they would like to see in the library. This is your chance to make a difference! If you are interested in joining a Teen Advisory Board, please contact us at these e-mail addresses:
On Saturday September 8, 2012, current TAB members and other interested young adults met at Densmore Park to participate in the Hunger Games and find out about the different TAB groups. Here are some photos from the event.

The 2011 One Book - One Lincoln selection, Cutting for Stone, is set in large part in a mission hospital located in Addis Ababa, the capital city of Ethiopia. Missing Hospital, as it is known to locals, is staffed primarily by "ferengi" or foreigners: doctors and nurses from Britain and India and support staff from the neighboring region of Eritrea. Abraham Verghese's novel is set against political unrest and the theme of belonging.
Program panelists include Dr. Yvonne Davenport, MD (Ob-Gyn) and 2011 One Book-One Lincoln selection committee member; Elizabeth Jacobs-Fitzgerald, RNC-OB, BSN; Karen McGivney-Liechti, CNM, MSN; and Jearlyn Schumacher, CNM
This event is free and open to the public. Because of the subject matter of this program, some material may not be suitable for young children.
Come join us for this final 2011 One Book - One Lincoln program!
