Summer Reading


The Summer Reading Program for children and teens has just wrapped up.  It was a fun summer for all.  Kudos to the Youth Services Department for creating our theme for the summer and planning and presenting so many great programs and events!  There will be a short break so that the staff can wrap up summer and prepare for Fall programming.  


Storytimes for the Fall session will begin the week of September 18. Teen Lounge will be back on September 15. Clubs, events and programs all resume mid-September.  More information will be available soon in the library and on our website.


September is Library Card Sign-up Month!


This year marks the 30th anniversary of Library Card Sign-up Month, a national observance that was launched in 1987 to ensure every child obtain a library card and use it.  This observance began because the American Library Association and libraries across the country wanted to remind parents that a library card is the most important school supply of all. It gives your children access to so much that they need as they pursue their education.


If you have a library card, you know what a great tool it is!  This card can unlock access to books, movies, music and so much more.  Free access to many databases for information and learning is possible with your library card. If you are 17 or older, you can also borrow a laptop to use in the library if you have your card.


If you do not yet have a card, all you need is a picture ID and proof of your Burlington residency. Bring this to the Circulation Desk, and take a few minutes to fill out the registration form and you will be issued your card. You will immediately have access to a wide range of materials for learning and entertainment. Join us and become a Burlington Public Library card holder – you’ll be amazed at the power of this card!
