Greetings From The Library Staff

Dear Friend,

After a long gray winter, we can finally start looking forward to spring, warm days, and nature coming back to life. At the Boonton Holmes Library we are celebrating the new season by welcoming two new Youth Services team members, both of whom are Boonton residents:  

Jes Mondino, who will be serving as Youth Services Specialist with responsibility for coordinating youth activities and managing our juvenile and teen collections. Jes comes to us with many years of experience with at-risk young people in Morris County.  

And Ru Hettrich, who will serve as our Early Literacy and Youth Outreach Coordinator. Ru brings their expertise in early literacy and experience working with young children in educational settings.  

Jes and Ru will be spending a good deal of March getting acquainted with the library’s operations and planning activities and programming in the year to come.  

Warm regards,


NEW at the library!

Wall Street Journal Online

As a member library of the Main Library Alliance we are now able to offer free, 24/7, online access to Wall Street Journal. By logging on via the library’s website, you will have full access to all Wall Street Journal content, including articles, podcasts, videos, and much more. All you need to get started is your library card and an email address! To access the Wall Street Journal online, click here.

Native Seed Library

As some of our patrons know, planting native and pollinator-friendly flora is a cause very close to my heart. So I am delighted that the library is part of a local initiative to revive the Morris County chapter of the Native Plant Society of New Jersey. As a first step, we look forward to starting our own native seed library where patrons can pick up free seed packets to sow in their own backyards and gardens. Look forward to our “grand opening” in mid-March and upcoming native plant workshops.

Borrow a Brother Sewing Machine

Last year we received a grant for 6 brand-new Brother sewing machines. One of the conditions of the grant was that 2 of the machines would be available to our patrons to take home on loan. Patrons will be required to take a class in operating the machines before borrowing. Throughout the spring and early summer we will be conducting sewing workshops for both adults and children. Stay tuned!
