The library is very pleased to announce that Humanities NY has funded another reading and discussion series to be held this fall at the Newark Public Library.
This time around, scholar-facilitator extraordinaire Joe O’Toole will help us explore a selection of 5 novels from PBS’s Great American Read, a list of the country’s 100 most-loved books and discuss what makes them resonate with readers.
The series kicks off with a Meet & Greet session on September 20 at 6:30 pm and continues one Thursday a month through February. Click on the photo for more information.
You may register through the library’s online calendar of events on this website, or by stopping in or calling the library. Participants are expected to attend all six sessions of the series.
This summer, track your reading to earn tickets for prizes!
Summer reading for adults kicks off Monday, June 25, 5:30-6:30 pm with a rock ‘n roll themed “party”. We’ll have snacks, a photo booth and music trivia for everyone! You can pick up your reading log any time after the kick off party, then just keep track of your time spent reading to earn tickets for a chance to win prizes at the end of the program.
Starting on June 18th, the Teen Room will be open from 11 am – 7 pm.
In July and August, the library will be open on Saturdays from 9:30 am – 1 pm.
NEW at the library, at the request of a community member, we have added a jigsaw puzzle exchange.
Bring in a puzzle from home and trade it with one here. Or just borrow one and bring it back when you’re done with it.
Donations of puzzles is greatly appreciated — just drop them off on the puzzle exchange shelves, which can be found near the new books in the upstairs of the library.
Join us on the first Monday of each month at 1:00pm as we explore a new category of food and try new recipes.
Borrow a cookbook (optional) and try a new recipe at home. Then bring the food you made and the recipe to the library to share and talk about your experience cooking the recipe. If possible, please bring your recipe in ahead of time so we can make copies for everyone. We will make and share a different kind of food each month. Check the library’s online calendar for more information and to sign up.
