Farewell to Jane!

jane retirement

Please join us for a farewell reception on Friday, Sept 28 at the Lincoln Public Library from 4-6 pm to wish Jane Flanders, Lincoln's beloved Children's Librarian, well as she retires from the library after 31 years. Musical entertainment from 4:30 – 5:30 and refreshments sponsored by the Friends of the Lincoln Public Library, Inc.

Help us create a Memory Book for Jane by sending a sheet of well wishes or memories to her from your family. Ideas include but are not limited to: photos of your family, photos of your children, stories involving Jane, drawings from you children, names of your favorite children’s books that Jane helped you discover. Limited to 2 pages on 8 1/2 by 11 paper.  They will be inserted into “clear sheet protectors” and put into a 3-Ring Binder.  (Colored paper is fine, no need to worry about margins, 3D items discouraged.)  A sample is at the Children’s Desk at the Lincoln Library. The Library will be collecting your sheets at the Front Desk and at the Children’s Desk.  Or, you can email them in electronic form to This email address is being protected from spambots.

The book will be presented to Jane at the party.
