At 10:30 a.m., the Top 3 Finalists will be unveiled, and later that day, the online voting form on the Lincoln City Libraries’ website will be active, for readers to vote for their favorite among those Top 3 Finalists for 2019. The libraries’ One Book web pages, once revealed, will also include the shortlist of the remainder of the Top Eleven at that time.
