Themed Book Displays in Youth Services

November is Native American Heritage Month!  Check our display for books celebrating their history, culture, and folklore.  Fall Reads about apples, pumpkins, and autumn leaves are waiting for you in the cube display.

Treats for Troops

After the trick-or- treaters are gone do you end up with candy that you want out of the house so it doesn’t tempt you?  Well here’s a way to get rid of them and treat our servicemen and women at the same time. Just drop them off in the orange bin at the library.  Once again this year, we are one of the drop off locations for “Treats for Troops”. 

Burlington Reads 2013

“Burlington Reads”, our community wide reading program, will take place in March of 2013. Help us plan for another successful event!  Vote now for the title that will be the focus of our next community- wide read.  Visit the library’s website soon to cast your vote for the title that most appeals to you.

Thursday Morning Book Talk – November 8, 10:30-11:30

Once a month, on the second Thursday of the month, Assistant Director Susanne Sullivan will talk about some of the Library's newest books.  This is also a great opportunity for readers, or listeners, to share some of their latest or favorite books and authors. There is no required reading, and no obligation to speak. You may simply listen if you like. Let us introduce you to books you might never have discovered on your own, and to authors we hope you'll love. Join us for coffee and conversation!
