Are you looking to make better use of the Bergen County Libraries?
Did you know there are so many Bergen County Library Events for kids?
No matter what age your children are, there is something for them at your local library! Some libraries in Bergen County offer daily events, and some are weekly, or even monthly. Just stop in! Some library websites aren’t maintained daily, and your library might do a better job posting signs than posting online.
Reasons to Visit your Bergen County Libraries
- Learn more about reciprocal borrowing privileges through PALS Plus. PALS Plus includes a group of public and academic libraries located throughout New Jersey. Members share library and computer resources.
- Does your child just HAVE to have the next installment of the series they’re reading? Don’t run to Barnes and Noble before you check out your reciprocal privileges!
- No Bergen County Library Events when your kids are available for them? No problem! Stop in for a movie, CD, or of course a DVD. Exposing your children to the benefits of the library can inspire a love of reading and strengthen their resource skills.
- Libraries fit your budget! Free books, CDs, and often time movies, along with ebooks and audiobooks can help those with a limited entertainment budget. Have a preschooler at home and need to fill the days? Libraries offer story times, crafts, and even yoga. See below for what some Bergen County libraries offer!
What you need to know about the Bergen County Libraries
- There are over 60 Branches in the Bergen County Library System. See the list below.
- Listed below each library is a small selection of events/programs they offer. There’s a lot more to choose from so be sure to check our Calendar of Events link at the bottom of the page to see more.
- Some events may be limited to residents so call ahead if you’re unsure. Some also require preregistration.
- If your library doesn’t offer a program you’d be interested in, speak up! Most libraries have a Friends of the Library group that might be able to fund a program or event.
- Libraries offer plenty of adult programs too so take some time for yourself and join a book club, knitting club, or attend an author lecture.
