In commemoration of National Poetry Month, April 2013, the Raritan Valley Federation of Municipal Libraries is publishing a National Poetry Month Celebration Anthology. The booklet features the original works of local New Jersey poets from participating libraries Bernards Township, Bernardsville, Dunellen, Middlesex, New Brunswick, and Raritan. Poets who submitted their work to Bernardsville Library will read their poems to the public on Thursday, April 18 at 7:00 pm in Bernardsville. The poetry-loving public is invited to attend.
The Raritan Valley Federation of Municipal Libraries was formed to foster-shared services and provide better access to library materials for local residents. All residents of Bedminster/Far Hills, New Brunswick, Bernardsville, Bound Brook, Franklin Township, Manville, Middlesex, Raritan, Somerville, and South Bound Brook may use their home library cards at any Federation library. The mobility of the population obscures local boundaries and the public expects this to be reflected in their ability to procure library materials wherever convenient.
There is no charge to attend the program, but advance sign-up is requested. Register online at www.bernardsvillelibrary.org and follow the link from Adult Programs, or call the library at 908-766-0118 to sign up.
