Children's Room Grand Re-Opening Celebration
Saturday, June 1, 10:00AM - 1:00PM
The Caldwell Public Library will hold a Grand Re-Opening of the Children’s Room on Saturday, June 1, 2019. The ribbon cutting will be held at 10:00 a.m. to mark the opening of the library, followed by a special story time with Caldwell Mayor John Kelley and an appearance by Pete the Cat at 10:30 a.m. There will be various kid friendly activities between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. including pony rides, a petting zoo, crafts and games, and free ice cream provided by Gelotti of Caldwell.
In August 2018 the entire lower level of the Caldwell Library was flooded, which destroyed thousands of books, computer equipment, furniture and supplies. The Caldwell Public Library Foundation raised $25,000 through the “Reimagine and Rebuild” campaign, and the plaque listing the donors to this campaign will be revealed at the event. Three mixed media pieces by American Impressionist, Lisa Palombo, have been donated to the library in memory of Cathy McHugh and Tom Gartland and will be displayed in the Children’s Room as well. The Caldwell Merchants Association has generously donated a new book drop which is located behind the library.
All in the community are invited to join the celebration. For more information, please call the library at 973-226-2837.
