NCompass Live: One Book - One Lincoln--Building Community One Book at a Time - Recorded Online Session 

Carol Swanson, Gere Branch Library Supervisor, and Kathryn Kelley, Bennett Martin Public Services Librarian and coordinator for the 2010 One Book - One Lincoln Community Reading Program, will provide background information on the One Book One City reading movement that was started in 1998 by Nancy Pearl of the Seattle Public Library and the One Book - One Lincoln Community Reading Program that had its inaugural year in 2002 and has been a highlight activity of Lincoln City Libraries and the City of Lincoln each year since then. Carol and Kathryn will touch on various past years’ books, programs and discussion opportunities and how the program has undergone continual changes to better incorporate community participation, input, and feedback. Carol and Kathryn will focus most of the program on this year’s upcoming One Book – One Lincoln program plan and will be happy to take questions from listeners either online or by phone.

Lincoln is currently in the process of choosing the 9th One Book - One Lincoln title. For the first time ever, the title for the 2010 program will be determined by a community vote. Five finalists were announced by the Selection Committee on Monday, May 31st. Voting will take place June 1 – July 30. Ballots can be found at all Lincoln City Libraries locations and local bookstores. Voting may also be done online at the library’s website. The winning title will be announced in September. At that point programming and discussion opportunities will begin. Check the library’s website often for the latest announcements.
