The Bookends assist with monthly story times, family and teen movie nights, children’s and young adults’ summer reading programs, special Library events, and the annual Friends of the Library used book sale during the summer and at Wood Street Fair. Volunteers also assist with special programs presented by the Office of Early Childhood Education in Burlington City.
