Turn Trash to Treasure
(& Save the Planet While You’re at It!)

Tuesday, August 15th ~ 7:00 pm

Organizing guru and author Jamie Novak will be on hand to help us clear the clutter and make the world a better place.  Meet in the Firemen’s Room of the Verona Community Center (upstairs). 

Books will be available for purchase & signing.  Adult Summer Reading Grand Prize Drawing will follow.


Thursdays ~ 7:00 PM
July 6 - Aug. 10

Participants will learn to make hats for chemotherapy patients, which they can donate to St. Barnabas Hospital or give to the cancer patient of their choice. There are patterns for women, men and children so that anyone experiencing treatment-induced hair loss can feel warm in a treatment room or outside. Receiving a chemo cap can also lift the spirits of a patient experiencing a health crisis.

Materials provided, but registration is required.  Meet in the Library (Community Center Annex Building--880 Bloomfield Ave.).

Registration is now closed.  Please check back again!


Thursdays ~ 10:00 am

Certified Reiki Practitioner Anne Shields will lead sessions of relaxation and meditation.  Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a yoga mat/blanket.  

Meet first at the Library in the Community Center Annex.  Classes will be held in the Firemen's Room of the Verona Community Center (upstairs).


Read for fun & prizes!  Download a Bingo card here (or pick one up at the Library).  Read from the different categories and receive a ticket for a prize drawing for every box you complete. If you get five in a row, we'll give you three bonus tickets.  Challenge yourself!

A grand prize drawing will be held Tuesday, August 15th after Jamie Novak's "Stop Throwing $ Away" program.  Good luck!
