We are celebrating Black History Month with a very special program:
Vera Lasser, from the The Newark Museum Speakers Bureau, will be visiting The Caldwell Free Public Library to present the program Exploring African Art on Wednesday, February 13th, at 6:30PM. The Newark Museum is New Jersey’s largest museum and offers 80 galleries of inspiration and exploration. To make a reservation to attend this program, please call 973-226-2837.
Throughout the month of February, the Caldwell Free Public Library will host a special exhibit as thanks for the community's generosity in support of the library. We'll have a special viewing of the history of the library, as well as images from The Mayors' Legacy for Literacy Gala.
The gala raised $32,000 which will be used to support essential library services. The event was held on November 15, 2012, and former Gov. Thomas Kean was recognized for his work with The Carnegie Foundation. We are an original Carnegie Library, started with a grant of $10,000 from Andrew Carnegie. Stop in to read up on our history and see some unique images.
During the week of February 11th –15th, the Caldwell Free Public Library is pleased to offer a Blind Date With a Book. Who doesn't love a good book??? Come in and pick out a gift wrapped book (while supplies last). You won’t know what the book is but you will have a chance to read something unexpected! All you need to do is write a short paragraph about your experience with that book and hand it in at the front desk. The book yours to keep! This is our way of saying Happy Valentine's Day to all of our favorite people. Books will be available during our normal business hours.
We hope you'll come show us some love this February and drop in to the Library for these great programs.
