In honor of National Volunteer Week, we’d like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to our very best volunteers … both human and furry! Here are some photos from our Read to a Dog event in early April (to see more, please click here or on the photo of sweet Zoe below). Some of our dogs and human handlers have recently celebrated FOUR YEARS of volunteering at the library for Read to a Dog. Wow!
To Stephanie and Zoe; Turner, Russ, and Jerilyn; Kaelin, Janie, Barbara, and Colleen; Clover and Kristen; and Herschel Walker and Brigitte: THANK YOU for bringing so much joy and happiness to our youngest patrons and making our Read to a Dog program such a success.
Our dogs will return on Saturday, July 1st at 11:00 am. WOOF!
In our March After School Art class, we learned about some of the amazing contributions by African-American artists, poets, writers, and musicians during the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s to mid-1930s. We specifically focused on the abstract portraits of artist Beauford Delaney. As always, our young artists produced fantastic works of art. We are so proud of you all!

We learned about Ancient Egypt and made cartouche artwork with our own hieroglyphics!

Denville, along with other Morris County libraries, now has access to Tumblebooks.

Our therapy dog Rusty has visited us for our monthly Read to a Dog program for the past three years. All our kids love Rusty, and all our staff members love Rusty, and pretty much everyone loves Rusty! Rusty has retired from her therapy work and will now get to be a full-time regular dog. She is looking forward to playing in the mud as much as she can!
You can check out some photos from Rusty’s library visits by clicking here or on the picture below.
We will be putting out coloring pages in the children’s library if any of our young friends would like to stop by and make a thank you card for Rusty. Thank you, Rusty, for the many hours you have spent listening to us read and for your constant smiles and joy. And many thanks to Rusty’s parents, Joe and Arlene McCaig, for their tireless support of our Read to a Dog program.
Please meet our staff. We are always happy to help our patrons!
