IFC Film Club Celebrates Its First Anniversary!
The IFC Club, which meets on the fourth Monday of each month, is celebrating its first anniversary of engaging conversation. All are welcome to attend and explore the modern classic selected.
On Monday, July 27, 2015 the film to be discussed is The Swimmer (1968).
In addition to the two Book Clubs (Evening Book Club and Morning Book Club), Oradell Public Library offers a new Cookbook Club. The Cookbook Club is taking a break in the summer, so the next session is on Tuesday, September 15, 2015 at 7 p. m. The cookbook is to be determined.
See you in September...

BCCLS Key Hunt
In celebration of shared services, throughout the months of July and August 2015, BCCLS is hosting a key hunt to encourage you to learn even more about our libraries. Each of the 77 libraries (and the four branches too!) have hidden a key. When you visit a library, be it your home library (Oradell Public Library) or any of the BCCLS libraries or branches, look for the clue that will be posted.
