The library will be closed for Thanksgiving beginning at 3 pm on Wednesday. The library will be closed on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We will reopen on Tuesday, November 27. Happy Thanksgiving.
If you wish to donate used books to the Library, please contact the staff first. Because of our space limitations and our collection policies, we cannot accept every donated book. We only accept books that are in clean, undamaged, unmarked condition. We do not accept used paperbacks. Books that we cannot use in our collection will be donated to other charitable organizations, put in our “free book” case, or discarded.
Have you ever wished you could remember whether you’ve read a particular book by your favorite author? You can save a reading history on your library account and keep a list of everything you’ve checked out. Go into My Account, and look under the Contact Information and Preferences section of the My Record tab. Check the Reading History box to enable this feature.
Steve’s Crafting Corner was dedicated on Saturday, July 28, 2018 in memory of our friend, Steven Storgion. Steve worked at the Library for over 11 years. In addition to his library work, Steve was a very accomplished artist. The Library has added a collection of art books for children to encourage new artists.
Our annual fundraising appeal letter has been sent out. Please join the Morris Plains Library Association today. Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference. We rely on you for much of our support. Please also consider asking if your Employer has a matching gift program.
Sign up for our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program. Reading to a child helps with language development and so much more. It’s never too early to start reading to your children! If your children learn early to associate reading with pleasure, they are more likely to enjoy reading on their own when they are older. Stop by the Library to sign up.
