BCPL is excited to announce that a second Boone Innovation Lab (BIL) is now open at the Main Library, located at 1786 Burlington Pike in Burlington. The Main BIL is in addition to the original BIL located at the Hebron Branch. The lab offers technological and creative opportunities for entrepreneurs, students, and crafters of all skill levels.
