We’ve been planning this party for a century and you’re on the guest list! Please join us this fall when we celebrate 100 fabulous years of BCLS history - and look forward to 100 more - with a variety of special anniversary programs and events scheduled throughout the system.

In honor of our centennial, each branch will mark this important milestone with special programs for both children and adults, many with themes linked to 1921, the year the library first opened its doors. Look for special story times, lectures and more.
