100th Anniversary Celebration featuring Svetlana and the Delancey Five

Celebrate the 100th anniversary of BCLS with a dazzling show featuring music of the 1920s!

Hosted by the Burlington County Library System Commission and the Burlington County Library System Foundation, this celebratory event will feature a special look at the long-standing history of the library system beginning in 1921. Explore our expansive history, tour our photo archives and more. Then, join us for a special performance by Svetlana and the Delancey Five as they seamlessly move from sophisticated tones to foot-stomping music, combining swing and pop from the 1920s. Enjoy exciting renditions of great jazz standards, reviving the hits made famous by Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Cole Porter, Louis Armstrong and more.

We are thrilled to cap our 100th year with a glamorous afternoon of live music and dance!
