Ridgewood NJ, the Ridgewood Public Library had an interesting post on its Facebook page the other day , the post said ,”You never know what you’re going to find when you browse the shelves. Sometimes it’s a James Patterson novel, sometimes it’s a French Sculptor/Painter dictionary from 1966.”

Despite the changing nature of society and the different modern  demands placed on our public libraries , the single most important and unique feature of public libraries is the BOOKS.  In an ever change world books offer unique insight and prospective and are the storehouse of knowledge and experience .
This bears repeating at the end of the day libraries are about books .

  2. If it’s all about books, why does the library continuously discontinue valuable, important books? As an example, the library had one particularly good historical book. I checked it out every year, hoping that would keep the book in circulation. One year, I went to check it out, but found that it had been taken out of circulation. Luckily I found the book in the sales rack in the lobby and bought it. But future generations will be denied the lessons taught by that book.

  4. Restart in-person story time and other programs.

  5. I found an important historical Book Donated by the family of a deceased
    Resident Biography of Naturalist John
    Muir in the Ridgewood Sales rack for
    1 or 2 dollars .

    I am going to try to return it to that Family .In memoriam books should be honored not recycled.
