New Providence Memorial Library is in the middle of its second annual Adult Summer Reading Program.  The Program started on June 1 and runs until July 31.  Unlike what you remember from school, there are no reading lists and there’s no registration.  Instead, we throw out a discussion question each week and ask participants to respond based on what they’re reading at the moment or have recently finished. 

Discussions have allowed participants to learn about books and authors we’d never have thought about reading, sometimes gain insight into what we’ve read and even critique movies.  So far, we’ve discussed titles and questions we’d like to ask the author.  This week, we’re talking about characters.

Participants have a choice of written responses or online responses via the library’s Facebook page or online reading group on the GoodReads platform.  If you already have a GoodReads account, just look for the NPML Online Reading Group and join.  If not, pick up a brochure in the white basket on the Circulation Desk to learn how.  Brochures also describe the program and summarize the prizes.

Eight generous businesses in New Providence have donated prizes that we award each week.  Weekly winners are chosen in a drawing from among all who participated in that week’s discussion.  Participants are also entered into our grand prize drawing which will take place at our end-of-program party on July 31.  So far we’ve awarded $10 gift cards to A&P and New Providence Florist.  This week, the prize is a $10 gift card from Paolo’s Kitchen.  Other weekly prizes include $10 gift cards to McGrath’s, A&P, Coppola’s, Tables for Two and NP Florist.  Grand Prizes will consist of a gift basket from Starbucks and $25 gift cards to Skin Deep Spa and NP Fuel.

Politics IS Government in Union County

April 22, 2018

After Bruce Patrson of Garwood was stopped from speaking at the Union County freeholder meeting of March 22 regarding the politics behind refusing to give the party line to a sitting freeholder I thought this brazen suppression of free speech could not go unanswered. A the the April 19 meeting I answered with these comments.

After ten years of following government in Union County I conclude ...
