Stand up against censorship by participating in a virtual read out! We will record you reading a banned or challenged book on iMovie. Then we will guide you through the editing process and we will post them to YouTube for Banned Books Week!
This event is for teens ages 12-18.
Stop by the Bluford Library every Saturday for a variety of board games, card games, and strategy and adventure games. Look through our board game collection, and suggest new games for us to get! Staff will be on hand to help you learn the rules and organize matches.
