  • LEBANON JUNCTION ee" For two years, the Lebanon Junction branch of the Bullitt County Public Library system has been forced to host a children’s summer reading program in the community center instead of at the library because of overcrowding.

    To BCPL Director Randy Matlow, the program’s popularity was encouraging, but counterproductive when the children couldn’t fit into Lebanon Junction’s small library for the event.

    “The whole point of the summer reading program is to encourage children to check out books,” Matlow said.
