“We find that people love end-of-year lists, and the libraries’ top 10 most read lists is a great way to share what the Lincoln community has been reading this last year,” said Rebecca Aracena, Support Services Coordinator.
In addition to books, e-books and audiobooks, LCL also loans ukuleles, guitars, video games and movies, and provides free access to dozens of databases.
