Who is that man pretending to be Rubeus Hagrid from Harry Potter fame, standing next to Professor Sybill Trelawney (our own Nancy Fort)?
It is our new library director and branch manager, Christian Pulverenti!
Nancy Fort has become the new director and branch manager at Cinnaminson, so she is still local for us to visit – sincere thanks for all that you have done for us, and continued success to you! But we are thrilled to announce that “Mr. Christian” will be our new friend at the Riverton Free Library.
Christian has been serving at the main branch headquarters for the past three years in Youth & Adult Services department. He has exciting ideas and loves our little library and community.
The eldest of six, he completed his undergraduate work at the College of New Jersey, and his Masters in Library Science at Rutgers – New Brunswick.
A resident of Cinnaminson, he and his wife, Judi, have a gorgeous five month-old daughter, Maria.
The Summer Reading Program is always an exciting time at the library! This year’s theme is “A Universe of Stories” and it promises to be an out of this world experience! We’ve got lots of exciting performers lined up including The Magic of Ran D’Shine, Swedes in Space, Bugs on the Go and Mad Science. Check the library website for a complete list of performers, or the BCLS Online Event Calendar.
The summer reading program is all about keeping kids interested in reading during the break from school. Children are encouraged to record the books that they read on Beanstack which is accessible on the BCLS library website or downloadable as an app. Children 5 and under will earn a prize after reading 10 books and children 6 to 12 earn a prize after reading 3 books. Beanstack lets the child know when it is time to stop by the library to collect a prize. Speaking of prizes, check out the prize shelf at the Riverton Library.
We are prepared for all the awesome readers in our town.
The Summer Reading Program is for teens too. Teens can stop by the library to pick up an activity card. Teens earn prizes with each completed column on their card. The Riverton Library is also hosting a Board Game night and Astrology program just for teens.
The Riverton Free Library will be closed on Sunday, June 9th, 2019. The Historic Riverton Criterium is being held in front of the library that day. Racing begins at 1 PM, with lots of activities for the entire family.
Be sure to come out and see all the festivities for this exciting community event!
