The Lied Lincoln Township Library hosted the first annual Star Wars Reads Day on October 8th. Star Wars fans around the world—from the youngest padawan to the wisest Jedi will be flocking to libraries and bookstores for the 3rd annual Star Wars Reads Day (SWRD), an event that harnesses the appeal of the popular franchise to celebrate literacy and reading. The day is being sponsored collaboratively by Star Wars creator Lucasfilm and its publishing partners: Abrams, Chronicle, Dark Horse Comics, Del Rey, DK, Random House Audio, Scholastic, and Workman.
More than 600 public and school libraries have signed up to host SWRD events in the U.S., triple the number of participants as last year, along with events at more than 1,000 U.S. booksellers and other retailers, according to Mindy Fichter, publicity manager for DK. Worldwide, more than 2,000 events are being planned, including at libraries in Germany, Austria, Canada, and Australia

A huge thank you to all of the volunteers who came to the library this week and carried books, cleaned, organized, put chairs together, hung pictures, decorated, and a multitude of other jobs that had to be done! We hope to see you at the dedication today at 5:00pm.
The Lied Lincoln Township Library is excited to announce that we are almost ready to move into the new library.
On the morning of June 12th, at 10:00a.m., we would like the children and teens of the community to meet at the library to move the children’s and teen’s area books. We are asking that the children bring a tote to put books in to carry to the new library building. Adults are also needed to help coordinate the move.
In the afternoon, anyone willing to help move the adult area books are also needed. We will work on Thursday, June 12th, Friday the 13th, Saturday the 14th, and possibly on Sunday afternoon the 15th.
Anyone who moved books from the library across the street to the present library in 1935 are asked to meet for a group picture and participate in a token move of books on Sunday, June 15th at 3:00 p.m. at the current library.
