May 17, 2012 by  

 This time of year, at libraries around the country, preparation is in high gear for the summer reading programs for kids – as a great way to keep their minds engaged while they are out of school for a few months. That’s certainly the case here at BCPL, where we are working hard getting ready for eight weeks of fun and excitement with kids and teens. But, a few years ago, we thought, “What about the adults?

The popularity of comics

May 11, 2012 by  

Blockbuster films like “The Hunger Games,” The “Twilight” saga, and most recently, “The Avengers,” always seem to spark a renewed interest in the book(s) that preceded them.

Share the love

April 20, 2012 by  

If you are anything like me, you enjoy reading or hearing poetry, and have a deep appreciation for those who create it, but you don’t profess to be able to write it yourself.

The idea is simple: select a poem you love, then carry it with you to … Continue reading
