IN FOCUS
Reflections on a Special Community
The launch of “Reflections on a Special Community”, in celebration of the Library’s 10th anniversary, continues this week with an entry by local artist and longtime friend of the Library, Tine Graham. Tine looks back on the early days of the Library and the beginnings of Art in Bloom, our most popular community event and largest Library fundraiser. The first Art in Bloom invitation featured Tine’s whimsical portrait of the Library. We hope Tine’s reflection will prompt you to “Tell Your Story” about your life in Harding Township. Reminisce, reflect, share. Bring us down your memory lane. Tell us what makes living here special for you. All are welcome to contribute — newcomers, long-timers, young or old. You can read Tine’s reflection by clicking here.
Book Tasting

Join us for a fun, virtual, social gathering, with a twist. Pour yourself a drink and sit back to enjoy mini reviews of a unique selection of books curated from independent book store, The Book House of Millburn.

How does it work? Book store owner, ​Nadege, will make a short presentation describing a selection of great reads; she may recommend titles you would not normally find in the Library or large book stores! You are invited to ask questions. Nadege will provide a list of the featured books after the event – which you may purchase – but no hard sell. It doesn’t get any better than that…!

Please sign up below – including your email address – and you will be sent a Zoom link on Thursday morning.
Library closed until further notice
As of June 3, we are still awaiting news of how libraries will be phased in as part of Stage 2 of New Jersey’s re-opening plan. Until we receive an update from the Governor’s Office, we continue to operate under Executive Order 107.
While the Library is closed, you can still enjoy our services via our eLibrary (offering free e-Books for older children and adults, e-Audiobooks and e-Magazines). Our Tumblebook Library is also available for younger children. See the E-LIBRARY link on this page for more information.
You can also join our virtual programs via Zoom!
Please e-mail any questions you have about our services to desk@hardinglibrary.org. Stay safe!
