BTE Live at the Library for Banned Books Week: “The Diary of Anne Frank”
Tuesday, September 26 – 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Libraries across the US are celebrating our right to read without censorship during
Banned Books Week, September 24-30, 2017.
Join us for a short performance selection from the Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble’s The Diary of Anne Frank
and a brief presentation about the history of Anne Frank’s The Diary of a Young Girl as a challenged book.
Following will be an open forum discussion. This is a program for adults and older teens. The presentation and discussion will include sexuality and the Holocaust. Fair warning!
The Library congratulates The Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble on its 40th Anniversary Season!

MEET OUR BOOK BUDDIES
On the second Tuesday of each month, our Book Buddies meet to help anyone who needs read-aloud practice. Each Buddy is a certified therapy dog and has passed Canine Good Citizen training. Even better–they love to listen and they NEVER criticize. Bring your own book or borrow some of ours. Book Buddies will be ready to go at 6:00 PM.
CALLING ALL MASTER BUILDERS:
Everybody in the family plunged into the Library’s LEGO stash, and creativity ran wild! LEGO Family Night happens the second Thursday of every month at 6:00 PM. Your turn!
