Missed a library program?

No prob; here's links to several summer presentations

This summer has looked a lot different than other summers at Bluffton Public Library.

However, COVID-19 hasn’t ended the library’s commitment to programs and events that support education, access to resources, community, and entertainment.

The library staff partnered with many  local Summer Program sponsors to provide these events digitally.

Origami Live, virtual game night, digital escape rooms, just for starters
