Lincoln
Imagination Library of Lincoln County

The Imagination Library of Lincoln County provides one book per month to any registered child in Lincoln County from birth to age 5. We need help from volunteers in reaching out to children in the community through creating marketing materials (at the FLC Public Library, unless otherwise arranged), assisting with enrollment events at the Host of Christmas Past, the Lincoln County Fair, the Community Baby Shower, and other local community events, as well as helping implement fundraisers like the annual Imagination Library race. Since these events are spaced out throughout the year, this is a great volunteer opportunity for those students who have a strict schedule and/or prefer to plan their volunteer hours far in advance.
