Today at Your Library

What could be nicer than enjoying refreshments on a summer afternoon in the library’s lovely backyard garden while listening to music performed by local talents?  No registration required.  Just come on over!  This event is free and open to the public.

Sunday, August 18, 4:30 p.m.  Guitar duo Darren and Alexander O’Neill perform “Guitarras en el Fuego”, a selection of tunes from Spain and Latin America.  (No rain date — we’ll move into the makerspace if the weather isn’t cooperating)

Library Book Group

Please note that the date of the August meeting has been changed from August 22 to August 29.  The official day of the month is now the last Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m.  All are welcome.  No registration required.  Copies of the chosen titles are available at the circulation desk and on our pre-loaded Kindles to go.

Looking to enjoy an outing with the family?  Borrow a free museum pass!

Boonton library card holders in good standing may borrow our museum passes for a 3-day loan period.  Most are good for at least 4 people.  It’s a great way to treat the kids or your friends without spending a lot of money.  We offer passes to Grounds for Sculpture, Imagine That!!! Children’s Discovery Space, The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, and Morris Museum. Click here for details.

Pre-Loaded Kindles To Go

Can’t find what you’re looking for on our shelves?  Tired of waiting for a popular best seller?  Inquire at the front desk about our newly updated pre-loaded Paperwhite Kindles to go.  Currently, they hold a total of 60 titles and are ready to be loaned out.

If you haven’t tried a Kindle before, ask the library staff for assistance to get you started.  Once you get the hang of reading on a Kindle, you’ll love the convenience!

Junior Garden Club 

This summer get gardening with the Boonton Holmes Library staff.  You’ll learn about soil and water, planting seeds (and caring for them), insects, and much more.  You’ll bring home yummy veggies and pretty flowers, too!  For children ages 6-10.  REGISTRATION REQUIRED, PLEASE, FOR ONE OR ALL SESSIONS!  Click here to register.
