Scavenger Hunt at Johnson Public Library
BCCLS (Bergen County Cooperative Library System) is celebrating its 35th birthday!
In 1979, libraries across Bergen County joined together to form a cooperative. The cornerstone of BCCLS was then, and is now, resource sharing, enabling residents to use their hometown library cards in other BCCLS libraries – giving them access to over 5,000,000 items.
BCCLS has grown. There are now 75 member libraries with 79 locations in Bergen, Essex, Hudson and Passaic counties. With over 650,000 cardholders and over 11 million items circulated annually, BCCLS has expanded in a big way. Cardholders at BCCLS libraries can borrow books, movies, magazines, music, video games, and more. They can access premium content databases, e-books, and downloadable audiobooks anywhere they are connected. Library users of all ages can participate in a wide range of diverse library programming. BCCLS libraries offer more than ever before!
As a way of celebrating BCCLS’ birthday, the Johnson Public Library is participating in a summer scavenger hunt from July 1 through August 31.
Visit 10 different BCCLS libraries, find the “35” token in each library, receive a stamp on your entry form and be entered in our raffle. There will be two winners picked from eligible entries -- one adult (18 and over,) and one for those 17 and under. The prize in each category will be an American Express Gift Card (value of $100.00). To double your chances of winning, collect stamps on the Scavenger Hunt from 35 different libraries and you will be entitled to 2 entries!
Come have fun, explore new libraries, and join us in saying “Happy Birthday” to BCCLS!
