We Are Family

| Pinelands Library

Turn up the famous Sister Sledge song We Are Family and get ready to celebrate. National Family Day is Sept. 26! You might be wondering what this fun holiday is all about and who can enjoy it. Well, the answer is… you and anyone you consider family! Maybe you have a family that looks like you and your grandparents, or maybe it’s just you and your mom, or maybe you consider your friends your true family. Share the holiday with anyone you choose; all are welcome!

Ready to spend the day with your loved ones, deepening the connection you have while making more special memories? Need some ideas about what to do together? BCLS can help! We have museum passes that enable you and your family to visit a variety of museums for free. Why not schedule a day and reserve your pass, or learn more about them here? If you’d rather stay home, you can always read one of the suggested items below, or listen to a book together on our audiobook (and ebook) app Libby. TumbleBooks also has a great selection of entertaining ebooks and audiobooks for you to explore. More of a movie-watching family? No problem! Check out some items below or watch more on Kanopy. Does your family bond over meals, making them and eating them? If so, be sure to keep an eye out for some cookbooks below!
