Here are some of the finished products from storytime this morning!

The Boonton Library carries pre-loaded B&N Nooks? We do! We have two Nook Touches (b&w) and one Nook Color (it’s pretty awesome), and they are FREE to check out! No deposit, no fuss, come and get yours today!
We know the weather is kind of terrible today, so if you’re looking to get the family out of the house, we also have Museum Passes! A free ride to the Montclair Art Museum or the Morris Museum is yours for the taking!
MtG for 18+ is tomorrow at 6:00pm in the library basement.
We’ve had a few questions about format and style of play; the club right now is playing Casual Constructed, meaning you build your own deck (min. 60 cards) and come play. Team play is common (3 vs. 3, Two-Headed Giant, etc.), but feel free to start a duel with anyone available.
Skill level is varied and members are very easygoing; come one, come all!

The next meeting of the Friends of the Library will be held this Wednesday at 7pm at the Boonton Library. Please come!!
