The Burlington County Library is excited to announce the 2017 fall schedule for “Sundays on Stage,” a series of culturally-diverse afternoon performances presented live in the auditorium beginning Oct. 8.

The library’s stage performances are held each year in the spring and again in the fall in an effort to bring a diverse selection of culturally-enriching entertainment to the residents of Burlington County.

Attendees are encouraged to arrive early, since seating is limited. Doors open at 1:40 p.m.
The County Library is located at 5 Pioneer Boulevard off Woodlane Road in Westampton. For more information, call (609) 267-9660, or visit www.bcls.lib.nj.us.
