Boonton is an amazing town with cultural diversity and richness that far outreach the town’s small size. The library wants to showcase this at two special storytelling events by and for Boonton residents!

We invite you to tell your stories of the special celebrations and traditions unique to your family or cultural background.

Friday, August 26, 7-9 p.m. — My Boonton Story
Saturday, September 17, 7-9 p.m. — Celebrations and Traditions

Everyone has a story to tell — why not tell yours? For details and registration, please click here.

Summer Reading Bingo

Why should the kids have all the summer reading fun? We think not! Boonton residents and library card holders, ages 18 and older, are cordially invited to participate in our summer reading bingo for adults. Winners will receive a gift certificate to a local restaurant plus a bottle of “bubbly” to go with the meal!

Here’s how to participate: Pick up a bingo bookmark at the circulation desk and start reading. Cross off a watermelon wedge for each book you read and submit you bookmark by Wednesday, August 31.

3 winners will be chosen at random and will be announced Friday, September 2.

House of Ukraine. San Diego, CA

All over the United States, people are eager to help the citizens of Ukraine as they battle the brutal Russian invasion of their country.

It’s often difficult to decide what the most effective kind of help might be, so we are posting this link to an excellent list of charities published in the NJ Patch by Veronica Flesher. We hope you will find it a useful guide.
