-A +A


The Lincoln Public Library at Twelve Bridges celebrated “Grab Your Hat and Read With the Cat” on March 2. This is our annual celebration of the beloved children’s author, Dr. Seuss, or Theodore Geisel, which included crafts and story time. We had over 200 in attendance throughout the afternoon.

A very special thank you to our Friends of the Lincoln Library who generously sponsored this event and also to The Lincoln News Messenger for advertising!

The afternoon would not have been the success it was without the combined talents of the following individuals who spent their Saturday afternoon reading Dr. Seuss books - Chief of Police Daniel Ruden; Mayor Stan Nader and his wife, Mary; our very own Mother Goose, Betty Gordon; Fireman Ron Olson; Policemen Matt Alves and Steve Krueger; John and Carol Noon; and Andrea Faria.

Our very dedicated police and firemen took time out on their day off to read to our community and a special thank you to them for their service to our community!

In our homework center, we had a wonderful team of volunteers to assist and oversee fun craft activities for all who attended.

Jillian Loya, from Lincoln High School’s Interact Key Club, organized the volunteers from Lori Reitman’s leadership class from Glen Edwards Middles School- Baylee, Teagan and Skyler!  Thank you, ladies, for being such wonderful examples of young leaders to our community!

Here’s to many more successful programs at the library!

A special thank you from the staff at Lincoln Public Library at Twelve Bridges,
