50 Book Challenge

Join Bernardsville Public Library’s 50 Book Challenge! Reading fifty books in fifty-two weeks may seem daunting, but if you share the goal with a supportive group, it can be a lot of fun. Our goal is to provide support for those readers who wish to challenge themselves during 2015. For further information, call 908-766-0118.
