Summer Reading Program Finale!

Wow oh WOW did we have a BLAST as well as a SPLASH last night! Our Summer Reading Program end as it began, in the pool at the Caldwell Community Center and was then followed by our basket raffle (Congrats to all!), as well as the wild sharing of all sorts of great books, prizes and of course cool reading certificates signed by Mrs. Khost and Mrs. Lembo. (Collector's items, to be sure!) We ended the evening on a fabulously high and sweet note - with italian ices from Gelotti. Thank you a million times over to our dear friends at Gelotti - now - don't you need a gelato or an ice cream?!?!

Don't forget: "Make a Splash" and "Make Difference"

Tomorrow, Tuesday, August 10th doesn't mean "end of fun" but it DOES mean the finale to our Summer Reading Program here at Caldwell Public Library.

We will end as we began, by MAKING A SPLASH at the pool at The Caldwell Community Center! Come in your bathing suits at 6:30 p.m. ready to "Make a Splash" and consider bringing some food for our Food Pantry or Beanie Babies for "Project Gratitude" to "Make a Difference."

After our swim we will be handing out certificates and drawing for the baskets. FUN!

On Wednesday, July 21, The Force was with us!

Darth Vader, Boba Fett, a Jedi knight and many more Star Wars characters marched out of none other than the Caldwell Public Library to meet our patrons on the Green. In addition to posing for pictures and sharing high fives, the 15 members of NJ's Rebel Legion (good guys) and 501st Legion (bad guys) signed autographs and gave away activity books and tattoos to the kids. Our fearless (and crazy) director didn't come as Princess Leia but DID bake Star Wars cookies*!

Thanks to Mrs. Khost for arranging this event, which everyone agreed was simply AWESOME!

(*Check out Williams-Sonoma for the FABULOUS Star Wars cookie cutters - which we learned about thanks to the Star Ledger picture and article earlier this summer!)
