Summer's drawing to a close, but the library's open six days a week again and we've got some great news and events coming up.
Come to one of our meetings or sign-up for an event at the Library.

Like our new logo?  We love it - thanks to talented designer Valerie Coll for producing it.

NJ State Referendum
The General Election Ballot on November 7 will ask voters to decide on the NJ Library Construction Bond Act, targeting $125m for new construction and renovation projects. 
If approved, grants will be available to fund 50% of new projects - without raising local property taxes.  Remember to vote on the 7th and support NJ Libraries!
More details are available from the librarians.
Thank-you for taking our survey
We had over 150 responses including forms completed at the Library and online.  We’ve got some great new ideas for events and workshops, and your feedback has helped us plan our Fall program. Congratulations to the winner of our prize draw, Rosa Jasinski of Pompton Lakes.
Attention Budding Designers
With all the things going on, and more events in the pipeline, it would be helpful to have our own Friends of the Library website with more information about speakers and workshops.
Contact us if you think you could help-out.
Thanks to everyone who came by our table and said hello at the National Night Out in August, and Pompton Day in September.
The money raised from our booksales will go towards replacing the wi-fi network in the Library and improving 2018 children's programs!
