Lincoln Library has plenty to offer in November

 

November 5, 2020



In November, the Lincoln Branch Library will be focusing on two main programs, with some additional programming for children.

Every Friday at 11 a.m., the library is hosting an online story time. Anyone who is interested can call or email Kate at the Library to get the link to join in for songs and stories.

They will also have a new take and make craft available every week for families to pick up. In addition, they are still offering Library Packs. Patrons can choose between a story time pack with picture books, a genre pack with themed books, an adventure pack to go exploring, or dinner and a movie which includes a few DVDs or Blu-rays, plus a cookbook.

This year, the library is again promoting Storycorps's Great Thanksgiving Listen. This program walks people through recording oral histories with friends, neighbors, and family members. For people who will be visiting with family over the holidays, this is a great opportunity to use a smartphone, tablet, or computer to record favorite stories or maybe hear new stories. The app is really easy to use, and the library encourages anyone who is interested to stop by for help downloading and learning to use the app. Information can be found online at: https://storycorps.org/participate/the-great-thanksgiving-listen/.

Stories can also be included in the Upper Blackfoot Valley community of stories to help build local history at: .https://archive.storycorps.org/communities/lincoln-community-histories/.

The Lincoln Library is launching a new program this year they are really excited about, called “Trading Traditions.” Patrons can share their favorite holiday recipes, and the stories that go with them, with the library. The library will compile them all and share them with the rest of the community over social media and their website.

“I’m really looking forward to hearing everyone's stories and trying some new recipes out. The program will begin in mid-November and go through mid-December. Each recipe submitted earns patrons an entry in a gift drawing. Recipes can be submitted online through our website or through paper forms available at the library. We'll have plenty of cookbooks around, too, to help support holiday cooking,” said librarian, Kate Radford.

Radford also reminds folks looking for new recipes to check out their digital magazines, as holiday copies are coming out with new recipes. “Taste of Home” and “Food Network Magazine” have both released their Thanksgiving issues, which are free to access with a library card.

The main Lewis & Clark Library in Helena is offering lots of great digital programs that are also available to patrons in Lincoln. There are teen crafts and read-a-longs, adult book clubs, conversation meet-ups, and author talks like the Nov. 30 visit with author John Farley who will be discussing his book “Heroes of the Bob Marshall Wilderness.” Go to http://www.lclibrary.org/354/Event-Calendar for more information or to register for such upcoming events

In mid-October the Lincoln Branch Library returned to normal business hours: Monday through Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Thursday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. They are closed on Sundays.
