The BFL will be closed from Saturday, May 25th through Monday, May 27th, 2019 in observance of Memorial Day Weekend.

What is Children’s Book Week?

Established in 1919, Children’s Book Week is the longest-running national literacy initiative in the country. Every year, commemorative events are held nationwide at schools, libraries, bookstores, homes — wherever young readers and books connect!

The Bacon Free Library is celebrating Children’s Book Week by giving a prize to any child who comes in during the week and takes books out. The prizes vary by day and will delight your children. Most children don’t need a prize to read, but it doesn’t hurt to get one! We hope you join us in celebrating children’s books and literacy, not just this week but every day!
