Book Nook: Lincoln County Library receives grant

The Lincoln County Library Foundation is pleased to announce the Lincoln County Library is the recipient of a grant from the Wyoming Community Foundation. This grant will enable the library to purchase a 3D printer and supplies for library programming and community use. 

Though 3D printing technology is not new, as a rural community, the experience is not readily available. The staff at the Lincoln County Library believe in lifelong learning and are always looking for ways to enhance services for patrons of all ages. Currently, we are making lists of ways to use this new technology, so be on the lookout for fun programs in the very near future.

The Lincoln County Library Foundation extends a heartfelt thank you to the Wyoming Community Foundation. This wonderful opportunity expands services to the Kemmerer/Diamondville community that otherwise would not have been available.

Summer Bucket List:

“Imagine Your Story” is the theme of the summer reading program at Lincoln County Library System this year. Your local library is here to help you make the perfect summer bucket list to fulfill that story. Here are a few suggestions to help you get started:

“The Making It Guide to Crafting“ by the creators of Making It: Do you need a new tote bag for all your library books, beach gear or grocery shopping? Or maybe you always wanted a submarine mailbox? Let Nick Offerman, Amy Poehler and the crew of the NBC show “Making It” help.  With 25 projects, this book offers loads of fun summer ideas.  

“Awesome Engineering Activities for Kids” by Christian Herkert Schul: Work your way through all the letters of STEAM in this guide.  Kids and adults alike can have fun building, designing and experimenting. 

“The Official Downton Abbey Cookbook” by Annie Gray: Throw a tea party or picnic with class and sophistication with recipes from this cookbook inspired by the show.  Full of recipes to transport you to a garden party on the lawns of Downton Abbey.  

“Hot Color, Dry Garden” by Nan Sterman: Here is just one example of the kind of gardening books you can pick up. Need one about shrubs? Check. How about organic growing? Check.  Maybe you’re more of an indoor plant person. Check. Give your life a little green this summer!

“Seeing Stars” by Sara Gillingham: Lay a blanket out at night and let this guide help you find the constellations.  Learn the stories and myths behind our dazzling night sky.  You may even see a shooting star. 

Pick any book: Grab any book from your library. Read the newest hot release, an old classic, or the book you’ve read five times already.  Find a big tree, a hammock, or park bench.  Feel the sun warm your body, let the breeze tickle your hair, and hear the birds chirp in the distance. Savor that moment and that book.
