Read with us
The Town of Ballston Community Library and Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake Central Schools are participating in “Build a Better World” as part of the 2017 Summer Reading at New York Libraries Program.  Studies show that reading at least 20 minutes per day during the summer helps with school success all year!  All participants (babies—adults) are invited to log their time spent reading this summer.   

How to log
Starting May 30, participants may enroll in our Summer Reading Program by visiting the  Library’s website (http://toblibrary.sals.edu) or in person at the Library. If you need help  registering or have any questions, we are happy to assist you. All children and teens must be enrolled in the Summer Reading Program to attend programs or activities.  Program registration for weeks 1-3 begins on June 19th and reading logs begin on June 23rd.

Earn prizes by logging time spent reading and completing challenges that appear on our online  logging system.  The Library will be giving away books, gift certificates and raffle prizes this summer.  The Summer Reading Challenge begins on June 23 and you may begin collecting prizes on June 26.  The Reading Challenge continues until September 4, however the last day for prizes is August 11.  After September 4, the BH-BL School Librarians will receive the reading results for BH-BL Students.
