  • Almost anyone who is planning to move has the problem of having too much stuff. So, getting rid of "things" becomes a headache. If you are a book lover, you may be reluctant to part with your books and may find it especially hard to discard them.

    I'm a great fan of the Bloomfield Public Library. They accept donated books to add to their collection or to put on sale during their Library Book Sales. Unfortunately, they can't accept all the books that are offered because they don't have the space or time to manage them. Donated books must be clean with binding and covers intact and nonfiction books should be up to date. They do not accept reference sets such as Encyclopedias, etc., Reader's Digest Condensed books, old magazines, materials whose subject is clearly out of date, books in poor condition, textbooks and mass market paperbacks. They ask that you call the library before dropping off books and speak to the Circulation Desk, 973 566-6200.
  • The Bloomfield Public Library is a terrific resource and I use it frequently. This week I picked up a book that I ordered online. I looked at my checkout receipt and found a new announcement. The receipt said I had saved $30 by using my library card instead of purchasing a book and I had saved $90 this year so far.

    The library belongs to the Bergen County Cooperative Library System, a consortium of public libraries that delivers quality library service to the general public by sharing resources with other members. One can look in the catalog, find a book or video, etc and request that the item be borrowed, either from Bloomfield or another library in the system. You just have to be a cardholder at one of the 77 public libraries that participate in Bergen, Hudson, Essex and Passaic Counties.
  • This conveniently located "large" small town offers an affordable option to its neighboring Montclair and Glen Ridge.

    The Mid-town direct train is located in the downtown Bloomfield Avenue area and has a parking deck for commuters. The DeCamp bus runs through town and into Port Authority. Beautiful Brookdale Park is the center for endless activities with tennis courts, playing fields, a brand new state of the art playground, and free summer weekend concerts and fireworks. Bloomfield College offers a liberal arts education in a downtown setting. Bloomfield is an affordable, attractive, walkable suburb.

    The children's playground at Brookdale Park was recently refurbished. Last Saturday evening, with temperatures in the 60's and a gorgeous clear day, the playground was jammed with children and parents enjoying the new equipment. One of the very special new pieces is a webbed climbing tower that I would have loved as a child. Others are a butterfly ride, water sprayers and a castle-like structure. The playground was abuzz!

  • In place of the traditional farmer's markets that have been so popular in so many towns; Bloomfield will be host to a Healthy Green Market this summer.
