Used Book Sale and Donations:       
Another successful book sale is over. We made $411.80 and had 243 people stop in the library to browse and buy.  Keep those donations coming! They not only stock our used book sales, but also provide over 90% of our collection, which now numbers over 3500 items.

October 24 – Snapshot Day:
What would happen in New Jersey if there were no libraries? Libraries across the state will record their activities for that day (October 24) to highlight the importance of our community libraries. Snapshot: One Day in the Life of NJ Libraries – make a point to visit your local library on October 24th and be counted!
