It’s not very often that Lincoln Parish gets to be the first North American stop for an exhibit.
But, from Thursday through May 18, the Lincoln Parish Library will serve as the first stop on the North American tour of a brand-new Anne Frank exhibit, designed specifically with schools and libraries in mind.
The local library was able to land this honor by being proactive. Emily Arnold, the library’s programming coordinator, said she called the U.S. Anne Frank Center looking for a traveling exhibit, and was given the opportunity to be the first host of this one.
Just in time to help fund a vacation or a summer home improvement project, Lincoln Parish School Board employees will get a little financial boost later this month when they receive their annual June Supplemental Salary Check.
The payment, commonly called the 14th check, will be handed out at a rate of $5,025 to certified personnel and $2,513 to support personnel. Those are the same amounts that were paid last year.
