Bridges presents the film “Reversing Roe” on Wednesday, Oct. 23, at 7 p.m. at the library. The film looks at the decades-long effort to overturn Roe v. Wade, one of the most divisive sociocultural and sociopolitical issues of modern history. Reversing Roe examines the polarizing history of the pro-choice and pro-life movements in the United States after Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, the 1973 Supreme Court decisions that legalized abortion, and highlights the intensifying battle for women’s reproductive rights in the U.S.
The Box Tops for Education program has gone digital. Participating brands have begun to change their packaging from the traditional Box Tops that you clip to the new Box Tops label. With the new system, it will no longer be necessary to cut the box tops and send them in. Download the Box Tops app, choose LCS as the school you would like to support, scan your grocery receipt within 14 days of purchase and the earnings will instantly be added to the school’s total.
If your packaging still contains the old Box Tops, please continue to cut them out and send to LCS or drop off at the Lincoln Library. Thank you so much for your support. If you have any questions about the new system, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
REMINDER: There will be an afterschool Halloween craft on Wednesday, Oct. 23, from 3:15- 4:15 p.m. Crafters will be making spooky bats, trees and other Halloween decorations.
