Burlington County Library System Offers Special Programming in April

The Burlington County Library System invites you to “grow yourself” and “grow your world” this spring by taking advantage of a variety of special programs available at all library branches.

Each month, BCLS strives to offer opportunities for learning, growth and personal development through dynamic new programming and April’s theme is “Unlimited Possibilities.” Throughout the month, the library system will focus on ways to stretch your mind, your body, and your world by offering interesting seminars, workshops and classes. Learn about financing and buying a home, relax with yoga and spa sessions, grow your own garden, and more.

Programs will be available for adults, teens and children and will be presented at the County Library in Westampton and BCLS branches in Bordentown, Cinnaminson, Evesham, Maple Shade, Pemberton, Medford (Pinelands), and Riverton.
