Have you recently lost your job and are struggling to pay your bills while searching for a new position? Unemployment Insurance (UI) provides temporary financial support to people who lose their jobs through no fault of their own.

If you’re not in the book industry, you might not be aware that most new books are published on Tuesdays. And guess what? Today is Tuesday! This week we’ve added new books by Bill O’Reilly, Nancy Thayer, Amanda Quick, and Victoria Thompson (among others). We just put these books out a few minutes ago. If you would like to reserve one, give us a call at 973-839-4434 and we will set it aside for you. If someone else has already beat you to it, no problem, we’ll add you to the holds list! By the way, you can also request items online anytime – even BEFORE they are published, or if another person has something checked out that you want to borrow. You can call us or stop by and we’ll do it for you, or you can do it yourself online through My Account, at catalog.palsplus.org. (You’ll need your library barcode and your PIN to log in. Your PIN is usually the last four digits of the phone number you gave us when you registered for your library card.) If you need help learning how to request things through My Account, feel free to ask us for help the next time you’re at the library. Happy reading, fellow bookworms! Mary Martin, Library Director
