Adult Summer Reading Continues


Are you looking for a good book? You might want to check out the recommendations by our registered adult summer readers. Currently there are almost 120 reviews of books read by them.  Of course, if you haven’t registered yet, you still can.  Just sign up either online or in the library then start recording what you’ve read and be entered to win a prize. Our prize for July is titled “Imagine the Travel Possibilities”.  This basket is filled with travel goodies courtesy of AAA Northeast’s Burlington office, as well as a road trip guide to New England and a $25 gas gift card courtesy of the Friends of the Burlington Public Library.  

Adult Coloring Group – Monday, July 24, 6:30-8:30pm


Come and join the latest trend for socializing, fun, and relaxation! The library provides the supplies, or you can bring your own. This informal group is free and open to all, and you can drop it any time from 6:30pm on. We hope to see you.
