High-Five December!

December 2, 2008

We are delighted to offer our third annual Poetry and Art Reception at the Palisades Park Public Library on Friday December 12th at 7 p.m.  We invite you to join us in celebration of the season, of artists and poets, and the joy of our warm community!


At this time, more than 59 visual artists and 24 poets will exhibit their talents within our Library.  Those of you who join us will find our brochure with poems and artwork of considerable interest, too.  Music played on our new grand piano, donated recently by Catherine Mascis, will round out our evening wonderfully.


We are also excited to offer the Learning Express preparatory exams to our library card holders, in the Library and at home.  Learning Express gives practice tests of all kinds – from SATs to police officer exams to civil service, nursing and teacher exams.  It has helped countless individuals hone their test-taking skills and advance in school, college, and career.  We are confident Palisades Park Library cardholders will also find it useful in getting to the next step.


Our library fine amnesty was a success!  The local foodbank will receive our offering of soup, dried foods and stews – hearty foods for the ensuing cold winter we anticipate.  Several library cardholders are back in good stead with their fines eliminated and their capability of borrowing materials from us and all of our BCCLS sister libraries, returned.


The renowned Korean artist, Gu Suk Go,  kindly donated his painting of cranes in moonlight to our Library recently.  We are delighted to make it one of the first in our permanent collection of paintings and will put it on display for the public to view soon.
