Joan C. Luksik,
It’s My Library
This September, our youngest Bloomfield Township residents will receive a copy of a very special first edition book, My Library, when they receive their first library card. This newly published book, a gift to the community from the Friends of the Bloomfield Township Public Library, introduces our young patrons to the Library. We also encourage you to bring in your friends and neighbors who do not already have a Bloomfield Township Public Library card to the Circulation Desk to get a card. Both of you will receive a special Quest bookmark and have your name entered into a drawing for a Kindle Touch 3G! Celebrate National Library Card Sign-up Month at Bloomfield Township Public Library and discover all that your library card has to offer!
Stop in Saturday, September 15 from 10a.m. until 2p.m. to speak with experienced searchers from the Piety Hill Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (D.A.R.). They will help you get started on tracing your ancestors and pass on expert tips at our drop-in workshop. Bring any records you might have with you. No registration required.
