MAY 1 is the launch day for the Stop & Shop Community Bag Program for the Butler Library. 
When you purchase a $2.50 reusable Community Bag at the Stop & Shop located in Wanaque, $1 is donated to the Butler Public Library. 
Our goal is to sell 100 bags, equivalent to $100 raised for our library by our patrons. We are confident  with the help of our dedicated supporters, we can reach this goal this year.  We strongly encourage you to share this news with your family and friends as well.
 The Community Bags are located on displays around the store and at the checkout. For more information about the program, please visit

10:00 AM
Washington Township Public Library has booked webinars with Overdrive to provide patrons with Libby virtual training (one session on the basics, and one that’s a “deep dive”). They’ll take place during Audiobook Month on June 6th and June 7th at 10 AM. Butler Patrons are welcome to attend.


Access NavigatorAn Access Navigator  is NOW AVAILABLE at the Butler Library
An Access Navigator is available every week, on Wednesdays from 10 A.M. to 4 P.M. to work with patrons on defining and reaching their goals!  Anyone who would like to participate in the program will begin with a guided assessment to develop your plan with your Navigator.
If you are looking for personalized help with improving your digital literacy, working towards new employment, or developing new skills in general, set a time to meet with Butler Library’s Navigator.
Would it be helpful to create a class for group learning?  Talk to your Navigator about what’s possible.  
To make an appointment, call the Butler Library at 973-838-3262.
