Rittenhouse Reimagined

Today’s libraries strengthen communities and transform lives every day. Beyond well-loved books, many libraries offer innovative programs that promote lifelong learning, connect patrons to technology, and advance knowledge. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the Lincoln Public Library continues to provide these services, with some modifications to delivery methods for the safety of all.

Please join the Lincoln Public Library for our Love Your Library – Rittenhouse Reimagined campaign.

Rittenhouse Reimagined will include many features to meet growing needs of people in the community.

There will be a lounge for teens, an updated technological area, and a larger collection at the library for all ages.

All combined, this refreshed, welcoming environment will enhance your learning needs at Rittenhouse library.

As a modern-day community hub, this welcoming environment will allow community members to come together to connect, create, discover, and learn. The space still serves as a traditional library, but also acts a place where you can work on meaningful and creative projects and explore various areas of technology.

Funds raised will provide:
Improved Quiet Study and Reading space
An exciting and interactive Children’s area
A dedicated space for teens to gather
