Updated Mothers Invention

As part of our celebration of New Jersey Makers Day, Carol Simon Levin portrays Lillian Moller Gilbreth, motion study pioneer and “Cheaper by the Dozen” mother of twelve.  She will also share the stories of other overlooked women innovators, from Margaret Knight (the 19th century “female Edison”) to Hollywood superstar Hedy Lamarr, who developed frequency-hopping, the technology behind Bluetooth, GPS and wifi. This program was made possible by the Friends of the New Providence Memorial Library.

FALL in love with Your Library!

Are you enjoying the crisp, cool autumn air in our area? While letting go of summer can be hard, there is so much to enjoy this fall!

YOUR public library has been busy all summer getting ready for some exciting changes! If you haven't been inside the library recently, come check us out. Stroll through our newly refreshed stacks, spruced up and spread out to allow for easier browsing of your favorite books. We've got some great new displays to help you find even more titles to entice. Relax in our comfortable quiet reading area with our new swivel chairs, and peruse some upcoming programs at our big bulletin boards.

We're working on more fantastic additional upgrades still to come, like new computers, faster wifi and membership in the MAIN library consortium, all just a few months away.
