Library Director

Greetings Readers and Happy Fall!

After a wonderfully busy summer it is now full-speed ahead into our fall programming! As a reminder, we are now moving to quarterly newsletters, so you’ll find all of our fall programming in this edition.

This September, we’ll be celebrating National Library Card Month and we’re excited to celebrate with guest librarians, Patron Appreciation Days and even a library card sign-up station at Tavern Day! Our goal is 100 new library card registrations this September. If you already have a card, help spread the word to friends and neighbors about all the benefits a Burlington Library card gets you.

After September, we move right into Pumpkin Pageant mode for October! This year will be our 3rd Annual Pumpkin Pageant and it promises to be even bigger and even better! This event features fun and activities for all ages and is a fundraiser for our Friends of the Library. All proceeds come right back to the library to support materials, programs and so much more.

Then, here comes November! We kick of November with the Friends of the Library book sale! This two-day event features thousands of new and gently used books, DVDs and CDs. Stock up on books, or find some gifts for others, during the big sale.

I always look at fall as a time to try new things – it must be deeply embedded from all of my first days of school! This fall, I extend an invitation to all of you to try something new on one of our exciting new databases. For those looking to spend some time crafting, try out CreativeBug. If you are interested in trying yoga, chair yoga or other mindfulness activities, we now offer access to BoldYoga – full of a variety of classes that you can view in your home. We are so excited to share these new resources with you all!

Without further ado, I now invite you to check out our Fall Calendar of Events! Click on the “Calendar” link bring you to our schedule. As always, we look forward to seeing you at the library!
