On behalf of the Board of Trustees and staff of Berkeley Heights Public Library, I would like to thank the volunteers who donated time and expertise to return the Children’s Department to pre-Hurricane Irene condition. The volunteers worked long hours to put books back on the shelves, move the tables and chairs, and prepare the room for business. Again, thank you to the volunteers. Thank you to BHPL patrons who asked about our progress, peeked through the windows and followed the checklists. Also, thank you to nearby libraries for welcoming our patrons by loaning materials and providing space for meetings. Libraries truly are a community collaboration and we welcome everyone to come back and enjoy our refreshed Children’s Room.
