Nominate for “One Book – One Lincoln” in 2020!

As you start your 2020 reading, and you’re thinking back over your favorite reads in 2019, we remind you that you can submit nominations for ONE BOOK – ONE LINCOLN year-round via our online form at: https://lincolnlibraries.org/…/one-book-one-lincoln-nomina…/

So…take a moment to nominate one or more books via the official form, for titles you’d like to have considered by the Selection Committee as possible finalists for the 2020 One Book – One Lincoln public voting.

[One note: You need not nominate the same title more than once — a single nomination is enough for a book to make it on the long list of titles the committee will consider.]

Also…let us know with a comment here on this blog post — what was your favorite read in 2019?
