The Believe in Books Literacy Foundation and the Lincoln, NH Public Library have partnered to create a Storybook Trail along the bike path starting at the Loon Mountain Picnic area on Rte 112 in Lincoln. The path is approximately 2.6 miles round trip and encourages both the love of reading and the love of the outdoors by guiding families along paths and trails with a storybook posted along the way. Each Wednesday the story will change to coincide with the North Country Center for the Art Children's Theater production at the Papermill Theater. The Trail is open seven days a week.

“We want to include fitness and literacy, and this project does both,” said Lincoln Public Library Director Carol Riley.  For more information visit www.lincoln.lib.nh.us.

The Believe in Books Literacy Foundation first developed a Storybook Trail on their 100 Acre Wood property in Intervale, NH. The popularly of the trail and the Foundations’ involvement with literacy programs at preschools in the Lincoln/Woodstock area prompted Foundation Director A.O. Lucy to develop another Storybook Trail.   “We are very happy to work with the Lincoln Public Library and bring a Storybook Trail to Lincoln. We share their goals of merging fitness and literacy,” said Lucy.  

The Believe in Books Literacy Foundation has a broadening mission to enhance the quality of life through exposure, education, and the engagement of reading by bringing stories to life. The Literacy Foundation is a Charitable 501(c)(3) Non-Profit guided by the needs and involvement of the communities of which it serves.

The Believe in Books office and 100 Acre Wood property is located on Observatory Way in Intervale, just two miles north of the Scenic Vista in Intervale, directly across from Town Hall Road. The Foundation website is www.believeinbooks.org.

Lincoln Public Library named a 5 STAR library for 3rd year

A recent survey by Library Journal magazine names the Lincoln Public Library as one of the best public libraries in the state.

The survey ranked libraries based on outputs such as circulation and program attendance, assigning Michelin Guide-like ratings or five, four or three stars. Out of 7,513 public libraries surveyed, 262 receive star ratings.

The Lincoln Public Library received five stars. “We are very proud of our library and the service that it provides the community,” said Library Director Carol Riley. “We try to respond to our particular community, and the community in turn uses the library.”

“We have a very engaging staff that pays attention and welcomes every person who comes into the library,” she said.

She’s confident that the townspeople will continue to support the library, both by their use of the facility and financially. Membership in the Friends of the Lincoln Library is up, and the annual membership drive surpassed its goal, and now have over 187 members.

The Library Journal Index of Public Library Service, which was the magazine’s November issue cover story, measured four outputs --- circulation per capita, visits per capita, program attendance per capita, and public Internet use per capita --- based on 2009 data collected by the Institute of Museum and Library Science
