Welcome back, kids! We’re planning three days of after school super-fun to kick off the new school year. From Wed, Aug 22 through Fri, Aug 24, from 3 to 4 pm, students can treat themselves with extra-awesome snacks, video and board games, a 3D movie, our expanded youth services spaces, a collaborative art project, and hanging with friends old and new.

The Bourbonnais Public Library was awarded a grant from the Library Services and Technology Act to purchase and curate an expansive graphic novel collection. The teen and adult collections have both grown by 100+ issues! Adult graphic novels include titles such as Preacher , Sandman , and Tokyo Ghoul:Re .

Reading Took Us EVERYWHERE This Summer
Summer isn't over quite yet, but our Summer Reading Adventure has officially wrapped up!  Reading Takes You Everywhere!  was an extra-special program for us here at BPL because each staff member pitched in to make it fun for our patron of all ages. We worked together to decorate the library, promote the program at our local schools, put together special displays, design our Rambler and Voyager reading logs, and act as your
 "tour guides."
We're thrilled to share that  Reading Takes You Everywhere!  turned out to be our biggest summer ever! More than 500 children and more than 500 teens and adults signed up to go on their own reading adventure. We gave out thousands of stickers, hundreds of high-fives, lots and lots of prizes--and more than 3,000 Jetsetter raffle tickets! Our new youth services play areas (which will be sticking around) were a big hit, and we've had a blast seeing how creative and collaborative our community's children can be. We are so grateful you went on this adventure with us...and we're already looking forward to next summer!
