Happy first day of Fall! We will be kicking off the start of the new season with the Friends of the Library Book Sale and Bake Sale on Saturday, September 23. The bake sale is only for the first day of the book sale, starting at 9 AM, but the book sale will continue all week until Saturday, September 30. Stop by and see the collection of books, DVDs, and CDs that you will be able to purchase.
Due to the Book Sale, there will be no movie showing on Monday night or Wednesday afternoon. The next Monday Night Movie will be shown the following week on October 2 at 6:30 PM and October 4 at 12:30 PM
The English Conversation Group has restarted on Monday mornings at 10:30 AM after a brief hiatus in August. If you are interested in developing your English conversation skills, please register at the circulation desk and join the group! If Mondays at 10:30 AM do not work for your schedule, let us know what other days and times you would be available. We would like to start an afternoon or evening group, so please let us know what times are convenient for you. If you have any questions, feel free to call us at (908) 754-7885 ext. 3.
