We are proud to announce the addition of a beautiful Harry Potter-themed mural in our newly-renovated Young Adult ("YA") Room! Painted by the Art Club students at Ho-Ho-Kus School, the mural is over seven feet wide and hangs above the new book section.
This artwork represents the final step in our creation of a dedicated YA Room, which features all of our young adult books in one area, as well as a safe and comfortable space for middle and high school students to hang out, read, and study. We are so grateful for the hard work displayed by our young artists. Thank you as well to the Ho-Ho-Kus DPW for their work in installing the piece.
Feel free to stop by and take a look any time we're open!

Something has been growing at the library during the month of May! If you've visited lately, you may have noticed a strange machine sitting next to the copier. Thanks to Abma's Farm, the library has been home to an incubator with a dozen chicken eggs. Our first chick, Artemis (named after beloved children's book character Artemis Fowl), hatched on May 26, 2016. He loves to hop around his home and sleep in his food dish. Be sure to visit him in the Worth-Pinkham Room before he rejoins his brothers and sisters at Abma's!
The library is working to form a Friends group, and we want you to be a part of it! Here are the top ten reasons why you should consider joining:
