Beginning March 21, Lincoln City Libraries will offer free storytimes for children with special needs on the third Thursday of each month, from 6 to 7 p.m., at Bennett Martin Public Library, 136 S. 14th Street. These sessions are for children and their families who may require a more controlled environment, and are best suited for children 2 to 8 years of age. Preregistration is not required.
3D printers are available at Lincoln City Libraries locations on a rotating basis; the schedule is available here. Contact staff for demonstrations or to register for training. You can also send requests to be printed.
This project was supported in part by the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services and granted by the Nebraska Library Commission.
