Mission Statement

The Lincoln Public Library is committed to providing resources adequate to serve the varied need of the patrons, and capable of supporting educational programs at the Lin-Wood School. Our goal is to furnish library patrons of all ages with a variety of informational resources, and to assist members of the community in their educational and cultural endeavors.


According to a local historian, the Lincoln Public Library was voted into existence at the annual Town Meeting in March of 1902 because Mrs. Eliza Henry, wife of lumber baron, J.E. Henry, felt that this community should have a public library. Convincing her husband that he should donate land and a building for this purpose, the Lincoln Public Library opened to the public on May 2, 1905. Since this time, the Library has expanded twice, doubling its size in the 1970's, and enlarging to 3,300 square feet in 1996. The Lincoln Public Library is in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
