We Love the Mahwah Library

"We’ve been patrons for over 10 years, and Violet’s been coming since she was a little baby. I just remember thinking we were really lucky to have such a nice library.

I’m a voracious reader – I am always here for the books. I usually have 2 or 3 books going at all times. So I usually come once a week just to refresh what I’m reading. I’m on a classic sci-fi kick right now – going back and reading Ray Bradbury and Arthur C. Clark, and other authors I’ve never read before. Or if I need a book for the beach I’ll just come and grab something for that.

Violet’s aged out of Jiggly Wiggly but she used to have so much fun running around. I know my mother-in-law would bring her up during the week and take even more books out. Today she discovered the video games downstairs which she was really excited about. I didn’t have a lot of plans or ideas for what I would do as a parent, but I knew my niche was going to be to turn her into a reader. I’m turning her into a comic book nerd too.

The Library has introduced us to authors and stories that we would’ve never come across otherwise. Anytime we spend time here – it’s always just so much fun."
