Enjoy these fun book reviews from the Lincoln Police Department, partly filmed at Gere Branch Library!
Officer Bonkiewicz finds himself detained by librarians, rejected by publishers, and scolded by Chief Bliemeister as he reviews “The Cat in the Hat” in this edition of LPD Book Review. And remember, if your class is reading a book that you’d like us to review, contact us at LPDMedia@gmail.com. If we pick your book, Officer Bonkiewicz will come to your class for a book discussion…with pizza! Thank you to the Lincoln City Libraries. @Dr. Seuss
