Kinnelon Library 50th Anniversary Kickoff Event on June 8, 2013

Kinnelon Library 50th Anniversary Kickoff Event on June 8, 2013

Happy 50th anniversary to the Kinnelon Public Library!

The library's 50th anniversary year-long celebration kickoff event takes place on Saturday evening, June 8, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm at the Kinnelon Library.

I hope you'll come with your entire family!

This specific event represents a partnership with the Kinnelon Public School District to present a “Student Starlit Showcase” when students in grades 3 through 8 and their parents are invited to browse through and experience the writings of Kinnelon's students. It is masterminded by fellow Kinnelon Public Library Trustee (and amazing Pearl R. Miller English teacher) Aileen Florio!

Other highlights on the Kinnelon Library 50th anniversary kickoff event include:

  • Brief student presentations about their experiences writing 
  • High school students will lead presentations about new and popular apps and other engaging information technology
  • DJ music provided by Al Louis Music - including the talented Mr. T (aka Alan Tedesco) from Stonybrook School!
  • Light refreshments and coffee bar, and 
  • Raffle prizes. 
From a practical perspective, if you don't yet have a library card, this is your opportunity to sign up for one!  If you haven't yet shared your email address with the Kinnelon Public Library - so you can receive a copy of the Library's newsletter - you'll be able to do so.

From a community perspective, this is a wonderful opportunity to experience the kind of community magic we experienced when everyone in Kinnelon was hanging out at the Kinnelon Library after Hurricane Sandy.

You'll also have a chance to meet all of the Kinnelon Library Trustees: Anne Vosatka, Linda Farmer, Mike Odian, Bernadette Morrisroe, Aileen Florio and myself.

Mark your calendars. Prep your kids. Get ready to start the celebration of 50 years of the Kinnelon Public Library on June 8th by spotlighting "the citizens and leaders of the next 50" as Kinnelon Superintendent of Schools Diane DiGiuseppe explains in Kinnelon Public Library Celebrates 50th Anniversary with Stonybrook, PRM Student Writing Showcase.

I hope you'll come.
