Programs for All Ages

At the Boonton-Holmes Library we love to sponsor programs which appeal to residents of all ages.  These events are a great way for families and friends to enjoy fun, cultural experiences together.  Except for the occasional materials fee, the programs are free and open to the public.

Maker Days
4th Friday of the month, 2:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m.
Next session:  May 24
Drop in at our Makerspace to tinker and create.  On the 4th Friday of the month the library staff sets up crafting stations with tools and materials.  The activities may involve sewing on our sewing machines, woodworking, button making, working with yarn, robotics, and much more.  Prepare to be surprised.  And have some fun.  No registration required.  All are welcome.  Children under the age of 10 should be accompanied by an adult.

Friends of the Library — Book Sale
Friday, May 3, 5-8 p.m.
Celebrate “Fashionista First Friday” by adding the ultimate fashion accessory:  a good book (or two, or more).  The sale includes a large selection of adult fiction and children’s books culled from the library’s collection to make room for new materials — all priced to go.  All proceeds from the sale benefit the library.

Mothers, Others, and Me Yoga
Thursday, May 9, 3-4 p.m.
In recognition of Mother’s Day, we’re offering a special yoga session for children and their mother, stepmother, grandmother, aunt, sister, or any other mother-figure who would like to attend.  Adults engage with their little (or not so little) ones while enjoying a restorative session in a calm, soothing environment.  Suitable for all fitness levels.  Wear comfortable clothing that allows for ease of movement.  Please arrive a few minutes early so that the session can start on time with all present.  Registration required, please.  Click here to sign up.

The Library and Boonton Elks Lodge are co-hosting a shredding event at the Elks Lodge parking lot at 125 Cornelia Street.  Bring your old confidential documents and witness them being safely destroyed.  $5 per paper grocery bag, $10 per banker’s box.  All proceeds to benefit the Elks and the Library.  Drop-in.

Cat Festival!
Jun 7, 5 – 9 p.m.
June is Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat Month and we are celebrating all things feline on First Friday! Please join us as we decorate cat-shaped cookies, participate in cat-themed activities, make cat-themed crafts, learn about cats, watch cat-themed videos, whack a cat-shaped piñata, and meet real live cats (and maybe kittens, if they time their births right!) from PATCH (Pet Adoption Through Caring Hands) in Pompton Lakes.  No registration required — just come on in and have some fun!
