BCLS Summer Reading Program Continues through Aug. 12

Five fun events still remain for the summer.

The Burlington County Library System is inviting children to continue with the system’s 2017 Summer Reading Program. The program, which features the theme “Build a Better World,” runs until Aug. 12 and encourages kids to track their reading progress, earn fun prizes, and attend library events about science, nature and more to help keep their minds sharp all summer long. Plus, all BCLS Summer Reading participants are invited to celebrate their accomplishments at special events planned at select library branches in August.
