BERNARDSVILLE PUBLIC LIBRARY UPDATE
Bernardsville Public Library will open with an abbreviated schedule beginning Monday, July 20. Check the Library’s website, bernardsvillelibrary.org, on Monday for the new schedule of open hours. Curbside or “grab and go” circulation will continue to allow patrons who want to have limited interaction inside the library to get library materials.

Please note that facemasks will be required for anyone entering the building. There will be no more than 40 patrons allowed in at one time. Time inside the building may be limited if others are waiting to enter. [This schedule and requirements may change if conditions and government mandates require it.]

Summer reading is in full swing! The online Summer Reading Program uses READsquared, an online application that makes it easy to log reading electronically. The link to register can be accessed from bernardsvillelibrary.org, or downloaded to a smart phone to make tracking reading even easier. There are reading logs and prizes for preschool, children, teens, and adults.

We are also pleased to announce that the Library has teamed up with Page Turner Adventures to present professionally produced virtual programs daily throughout the summer including comedy story theater, crafts, cooking and recipes, author interviews, guest performers, contests, games, and more. These programs, can be accessed now by joining the Library’s private Summer Reading Facebook page. Log onto Facebook and go to the Bernardsville Library page. Then go to the Groups tab to the left of the page. Once you have been accepted, watch all of the exclusive online content from the safety and comfort of your home.
