L

incolnwood shares part of its name with the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. Surprisingly, by his death in 1865, President Lincoln had not ventured to many destinations outside of the Midwest. Travel in and outside of the country was not as popular during the 1860s as it is today. The residents of Lincolnwood love to travel and go to many places around the world. The Lincolnwood Library invites you to stop in and borrow one of our Adventure Abe cut-outs and take a piece of Lincolnwood with you on your next trip. Take some photos of the experiences you are having with our traveling buddy, and send them to us at events@lincolnwoodlibrary.org for our Lincoln Travels display or post on social media with #AdventureAbe and follow his travels!
