Spring 2021 Newsletter

The snow and ice is all gone, as the warmth and sunshine of Spring calls us outdoors.  Our library has seasonal books and resources to help you maintain and plant your yard; spruce up / decorate your house; make crafts for Mother's Day or start to plan days out (socially distanced of course).

If the April showers are keeping you indoors, how about losing yourself in a book?  Check out the latest edition of Bookpage, available in the library, for inspiration and recommendations.  April is also Poetry Month, so why not join our online Poetry Blast on the 15th to commemorate, celebrate and inspire through verse.

National Library Workers Day 2021
In these especially trying times, the Friends of the Library would like to express their appreciation and pride for the Pompton Lakes Library Staff  in celebration and recognition of National Library Workers Day (April 6th). 
In recognition of their courage and dedication to the Pompton Lakes Library during the COVID 19 Pandemic, the Friends of the Library have donated and dedicated a copy of The Library Book by Tom Chapin and Michael Mark (2017).  The book could be read during a story hour, or by a parent at a child's bedtime as a playful tribute to our libraries.
Don't forget, when you're shopping at Amazon, go to instead and they'll donate 0.5% of the value of your eligible purchases to the Friends of Pompton Lakes Library.
Go ahead, treat yourself, and treat us too!
Join us alternate Thursdays at 11am for the Pompton Lakes Library Book Club. 
We'll share suggestions & new-reads and talk about what's inspiring us this week.
For more details on how you can participate in the Zoom online discussion, call the library for more details on (973) 835-0482 or email
