LINCOLN â€” You bought an E-Book reader, a Kindle or an iPad, and now youâ€™re wondering where to find something to read.
Yes, there are plenty of e-book websites to visit and buy the latest hot read for your device, but did you know there are also ways to download a book similar to checking one out from your local library?
Nancy Ross, assistant director of the Lincoln Public Library, says an increasing number of library patrons are taking advantage of the library's e-book lending program and she sees that interest as only increasing in the future as more people learn how to use the service.
NORTH SMITHFIELD â€” From top to bottom, this was North Smithfieldâ€™s best performance of the season.

The Northmen will have plenty of time to savor the lop-sided triumph as the teamâ€™s next game isnâ€™t until Friday, Nov. 2 at Smithfield.
