Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me! It's BHPL's Last Day Till January

Today is the last day that BHPL will be open, until sometime in January when we reopen at our new location at 110 Roosevelt Ave.

Come in and take a last look at the library before we close at 9 p.m. tonight. If you are a Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me! fan, and even if you're not, read host Peter Sagal's lovely essay about his memories of the Berkeley Heights Public Library, which was published in "This is What a Librarian Looks Like."

"That stairway. It was a dark upward passage into mystery, replete with Freudian and Jungian meanings, which I couldn't understand because all the books about that sort of stuff were upstairs. . . " - Peter Sagal
How to return your books while we are closed:
If the item is due in December or January, you have three options:
  • return it to the bookdrop at 290 Plainfield Ave. by December 20 
  • hold onto it and return it by February 1st, fine-free, at 110 Roosevelt Ave.
  • if you are using another local library, you may return BHPL items there also. (Remember to take ID and your BHPL card with you if you want to check out items there.)

If the item was due in November or earlier, fines will stop accumulating while are closed, and begin again when we reopen.

Please keep visiting the library blog - not only will we be posting information about the move, but we also have an author interview coming this month with Linda Raedisch about her book The Old Magic of Christmas.
