One Book - One LincolnGood afternoon to all the subscribers to the One Book – One Lincoln Blog!

The nomination form for the 2011 One Book – One Lincoln went live on the Lincoln City Libraries site this morning. Visit the front page of the LCL web site and click on the link in the nomination blurb, or click this link [no longer active] to be taken directly to the nomination form.

Nominations will be taken through February 11th, after which the list of nominated titles will be turned over to a selection committee, who will narrow the list down to five finalists. Just like in 2010, the five finalists will be announced later in the year and the general reading public will be allowed to vote on the book they’d like to see as the final selection.

But the process starts now…visit the One Book nomination form and make your suggestions now! This is the 10th anniversary for One Book – One Lincoln — let’s make it a special one!!
