Displays in Youth Services
We have set aside the second display table for Massachusetts Book Award Books, including such great reads as Clements’ Lost and Found, Stead’s When You Reach Me, and Lin’s Where the Mountain Meets the Moon. The new list is on the display table, and additional copies of the titles are on order. Next, for fun Summertime Reads, check out the cube display, where you’ll find timely titles such as Gayzagian’s One White Wishing Stone: a Beach Day Counting Book; London’s Fireflies, Fireflies, Light My Way; and Poydar’s Last Day, Hooray.
Last Wednesday Book Group
The Last Wednesday Book Group will not meet over the summer months. We are considering our format for the Fall and would value your input. There is a brief survey available both in the library and on line. If you would take a few minutes to fill one out it will help us with future planning.
The Library has passes to 15 museums and attractions in the area. Most are made possible by the Friends of the Burlington Public Library. For a complete list, to reserve a pass, or to see our lending policy go to burlingtonpubliclibrary.org and click on Museum Passes.
