The Giving Tree is Here

Our holiday tree offers a festive welcome to patrons entering the library, but it also affords you the opportunity to spread good cheer to children in need of reading material. Called the Giving Tree, it is the collection point for donations of new books for children of all ages who may not have access to such books otherwise. Please consider donating one or more new, unwrapped books for infants through teens. Simply place your donation inside the boxes in front of our tree by December 9th. Thank you.

Bookmark Something New To Read

Fifteen original bookmarks have been created by the staff at Bernardsville Public Library to help you chose your next reading selection. Each bookmark features a separate genre or topic, and they are all double-sided to give you even more information. One side offers a list of authors for that genre and the other side may offer interesting facts or helpful Web sites for a deeper exploration of the topic.

Bookmark topics include Horror, Chick Lit, Biographies/Memoirs, Fantasy, Romance, Adventure, Mystery, American Historical Fiction, Science Fiction, Disaster, War Fiction, Culinary Mysteries, Travel, Historical Fiction, and Prizewinners. Printed on colorful cardstock, they stand out beautifully compared to ordinary bookmarks. You'll find them at the circulation desk, so please help yourself to these new resources made just for you!
