Summer 2020 Newsletter

As we all adjust to new routines, we're finding new ways of working, new ways of doing our shopping and new ways of enjoying ourselves and relaxing.

Now that the library is open again for lending with curbside collection, the whole Pompton Lakes collection is available for loan, view the catalog here.
Items from other libraries can't be delivered at this time, but you can access their material directly if you like.  Read-on for further details.

So why not treat yourself, find a book to read, a DVD to watch, get involved with summer craft events or sign up for the Summer Reading Experience.

One Book One Town
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

"There’s no way of knowing exactly how many of Henrietta’s cells are alive today. One scientist estimates that if you could pile all HeLa cells ever grown onto a scale, they’d weigh more than 50 million metric tons - an inconceivable number, given that an individual cell weighs almost nothing. Another scientist calculated that if you could lay all HeLa cells ever grown end-to-end, they’d wrap around the Earth at least three times, spanning more than 350 million feet. In her prime, Henrietta herself stood only a bit over five feet tall."
