National Library Week at Bernardsville Library

April 2, 2019 // Filed under Blog

To celebrate National Library Week, April 7 – 13, Bernardsville Library will be hosting a display featuring beloved books recommended by Bernardsville’s Mayor and Council, Library Trustees, and Borough employees. Each book will contain a quote from the participants explaining why the book was meaningful to them.

“When I go to visit someone, I love to check out what people have on their bookshelves,” explains Library Director Alexandria Arnold. “Finding out what people like to read can give you a new perspective on someone you thought you knew.”

This year’s National Library Week theme is “Libraries = Strong Communities.” The theme highlights how libraries provide resources, programs and expertise that are open to all and are critical to building community. They provide a public space where everyone, regardless of age, culture, or background, can come together to connect, to discuss critical issues of our times and to learn. Libraries also engage in partnerships with other community organizations to extend their reach and meet the community’s critical needs.

Ms. Arnold is delighted that so many community leaders agreed to participate in the display. Visitors will find both fiction and non-fiction recommendations. The display will be on view at the front of the library through the end of April.
