Pinterest Interests

Bernardsville Library is on Pinterest @ with many interesting boards for you to explore.  
Pinterest is an online, image-based way to share creative ideas and photos using a bulletin board format.  Libraries use Pinterest as yet another way to enhance their Web presence and to promote themselves.  Our bulletin boards cover topics such as Jersey Authors, Library Displays, Adult Programs, and school-required/suggested Summer Reading lists, to name just a few.  We also feature some entertaining boards such as Edible Books! and Book Related Crafts.  In all we currently have 59 boards, with more being developed all the time.  We invite you to spend some pleasant browsing time on our Pinterest boards.  Feel free to re-pin and "like" any of them!

Journalist Mark Seal reported on the remarkable life and violent death of naturalist Joan Root in a 2006 Vanity Fair article, but quickly realized that a magazine piece could not do justice to her story.  In 2009 he published his biography of Joan Root entitled Wildflower: an extraordinary life and untimely death in Africa. Bernardsville Library's book group Memoirs and Coffee will discuss Wildflower at its next meeting to be held Tuesday, June 26, at 10:30 a.m.  New members are invited to attend, and copies of the book are available at the circulation desk.

Stiff Upper Lip

Royalists, are you feeling rather flat after the finale of the queen's Diamond Jubilee celebration this week?  All that pomp and circumstance, all that ceremony and tradition, over and done with so soon. Well, if you're lucky enough to  live in our vicinity, pop on over to Bernardsville Library's very own British Collection for your fix of all things British in the medium of film. Click here for more information about the British Collection. Then put the kettle on for a nice spot of relaxing tea.
