The following programs will be held in the Children’s Library:

Looking way ahead, our annual BPL Fall Festival will be on Wednesday, October 29.  There will be plenty of games and fun things happening at all of the branches.  Then during the entire month of December everyone is invited to play the life-size Candy Land game.  It will take up most of the area in the Children’s Library.

Designate one day each week for visiting the library.   Logon to our website at www.bossierlibrary.org from your iPhone, iPad, or home computer where you will find reading activities, games, journals, newspapers, downloadable books, and so much more.      

Our Library!  Gateway to the Past, Bridge to the Future.
