I Want One of Those!

Please refer to "Library Cards" on Bernardsville Public Library's Web site to learn whether you are eligible for a Bernardsville card. You'll notice that we have several reciprocal arrangements with local towns and library federations. We also offer borrowing privileges to certain student and worker populations. Many people love our library, but don't fit into these categories, and they, too, are able to borrow from us by purchasing a nonresident card. We hope to see you here soon.

Weed... or Read?

The summer heat is finally on, and it's too hot to do anything except read. So drop by Bernardsville Public Library's display, Relax with a Good Book, and help yourself to some great books. Maybe a "staycation" at home is all you need.
If, on the other hand, the travel bug has been buzzing in your ear, sample some interesting fiction and nonfiction about living or traveling abroad. Just visit the Oversize Collection area at the library to browse some books about exotic locales before you book your trip.

Summer Prizes For Adults Will Continue Through August

The children's summer reading program at Bernardsville Public Library has attracted a large number of young readers, and they are eagerly accumulating points for prizes. But we also want to thank our adult readers for their patronage. Each summer we offer them an opportunity to enter a weekly drawing for lovely prizes as well as the grand prize at summer's end. All they need do is check out three or more adult-level items and fill out an entry slip at the circulation desk. We are grateful to local merchants and other donors for the wonderful prizes we have been able to offer each week, including great gift certificates for local goods and services.

En Francais/Auf Deutsch/En Espanol - At The Library!

Bernardsville Public Library is currently offering a special loan of books in French and German for our patrons who want to read in their native languages or for those who want to test their language skills. French authors include Suzanne Bernard and Gilbert Sinoue. There are also many French translations of books by popular authors such as Tess Gerritsen and Catherine Coulter. Books by Austrian and German authors Hugo von Hofmannsthal and Rainer Maria Rilke are also intermingled with German translations of writers like Ken Follett. These French and German books are located on a special cart next to the rotunda. In addition, a new loan of Spanish literature will soon be available to supplement our own collection of books, magazines, and dvds in Spanish. Enjoy reading in another language!
