MONTVILLE, NJ – The last day of the Montville Township Public Library Summer Reading Program will be Aug. 25, but residents were on hand for the finale on Aug. 16 party to celebrate. The festivities included face painters, cupcake decorating and a petting zoo.

Eight-year-old John was there to get his face painted, after reading four Magic Tree House books and a Captain Underpants book. He’ll be a second grader at Cedar Hill Elementary in September. Sister Meg had read some “Emily Windsnap” books about a girl who becomes a mermaid.

Over at the petting zoo, six-year-old Ishmit and four-year-old Ridhima Singh were busily feeding the goats and geese while their mom looked on.

“The Summer Reading Program was so great,” she said. “I think they read more than 50 books! They were so excited and really loved the program. This is our third year participating. My son even picked up a book about Einstein. It was above him, but so what? He tried. My daughter chose so many different titles. There was one I just loved too… I can’t think of the title, but we’re going to keep reading that one again and again.”

The theme of the Summer Reading Program was “Build a Better World,” and the library is collecting donations for Towaco’s own charity organization The Homeless Bus, including:

  • Pocket tissues
  • Cough drops
  • Disposable razors
  • Shaving cream
  • Q-tips®
  • Soap
  • Lip balm
  • Bandaids®
  • Sandwich-sized zipper bags
