Wednesday, April 13th: Winners will be announced for our bookmark contest. (Rules for the bookmarks can be found on our website and at the desk in front of Circulation, Children’s Room and Art & Music. The deadline to hand in your bookmark is March 28th.)

Winners will be announced around 3:30 p.m. If you are not present we will call you with the good news.
Thursday, April 14th: Canned food: Please help us support our local food pantry and bring in a canned food item for your overdue books and or material instead of paying the fine. Feel free in supporting the food pantry even if you do not have an overdue book. Any donation is welcome.
Friday, April 15th. No charge replacement card: Happy Tax Day! You might have to pay your taxes, but today if you lost your library card we want to welcome you back and receive a free library card.
Saturday, April 16th. AMNESTY DAY
It is time for spring cleaning. We understand times can be hard so the library is offering an Amnesty Day where you can bring back all materials whether it is book, book on CD, DVD, or CD with no questions asked. Your fine will be automatically removed. We feel this is super important and are willing to extend it to Sunday. Before you start your morning errands drive by the library and put your books in our drop box. (Drop box can only be used for books. DVD’s and CD’s cannot be dropped in the box due to the fact that they break if a heavy book falls on them, they must to be returned inside on Saturday).
Throughout the month of April we will have many library displays for you to come and enjoy.
Thank you for your continued support of the Bayonne Public Library!
