Organizers of a centennial book on the history of Lincoln County is seeking nominations of residents for a “Roll of Honor.” The book is scheduled to be released later this year.

Community leaders, volunteers, those active in clubs and organizations, and those who have made a lasting contribution to Lincoln County or any of its towns should be nominated. Clubs and organizations are strongly encouraged to nominate their leaders and organizers.

Nominees must be alive and currently living in Lincoln County.

While the Lincoln County Centennial book will include a brief history of the area, the main focus will be on Lincoln County as it is today. Major industries and employers, active clubs and groups, annual events, and other features of our community will be highlighted. A limited run of the book will be available with pre-orders beginning this spring.

Nominations should be submitted by e-mail or on paper by Jan. 31. E-mail nominations to library@lincolncountylibraries.com . Paper nominations can be dropped off at any of the three branches of the Lincoln County Public Libraries (Libby, Troy or Eureka), clearly marked “Roll of Honor Nomination.” No nominations will be accepted by phone.

Anyone interested in helping to finish the book should call Melody Condron at the Libby library, 293-2778.
