Montclair Public Library Foundation’s “Love Your Library” Annual Appeal – $200,000 Goal

BY  |  Friday, Nov 17, 2017 8:00am  |  COMMENTS (0)

Montclair Public Library Foundation launches its “Love Your Library” annual appeal campaign with a goal of $200,000. Letters with appeal information are on their way to all Montclair households.

The MPL Foundation fills the gap between what town funding provides and the resources patrons expect. “The library makes a difference every day in the life of the community,” states Peter Coyl, MPL Library Director. “The library receives public support, but private donations strengthens the library’s capacity to innovate and adapt to change.” Donor’s collective investments make free programs possible, fund new services to help everyone connect to information that will better their lives and enhance library collections.

Whether you’re a family looking for a story time program, an immigrant in need of language resources, an unemployed individual searching for job help, or a community member who needs to renew their passport, you can all go to one place: the library. Continue Reading

Bring on the baskets! Montclair’s own Plum on Park and Plum Bakery owner/chef Natalie Colledge will be competing on Food Network’s Chopped on Thursday, November 9 at 9 pm.

Colledge can’t reveal anything other than this: She competes in a pie-themed challenge — every basket contained a pie, along with other ingredients — and the final dish had to be some kind of pie.

“As nerve racking and stressful as it was I had a great time,” says Colledge. “Working in both Plum on Park’s small kitchen, and the even smaller kitchen at Plum Bakery, I have to be very efficient and neat. In high speed service it’s a must. That experience prepared me for my challenge.” Continue Reading

Sad. Let's hope that this is not its "Last Tango." One of the most beautiful and iconic buildings in town. Valentino, Garbo, Keaton must have played there.
