BPL BookCon for Kids & Teens! (June 28 @ 4:00 PM + 6:00 PM) (330 Park Ave. / Great Room)

Join Bloomfield Public Library for it’s second “BookCon”…a book event for youth of all ages!

What is BookCon? The Bloomfield Public Library Book Conference – or “BookCon” – is a chance for kids, tweens and teens to select and go home with FREE books of all kinds (and a variety of extra goodies!). Kids visit the in-person BookCon event during one of the two timeframes (4-5:30 PM or 6-8 PM), and they can select all of the free things they’d like to take home…it’s as easy as that! Our event will take place offsite at 330 Park Avenue in Bloomfield (The Great Room A #128). No registration necessary.

PLEASE NOTE: This event is for youth – only kids and teens will be allowed to select books to take home! Adults/Teacher may select books ONLY in the final hour of the event from 7-8 PM. Read more >
