Bernardsville Library Wants to Hear From You!
As part of its planning process, the Trustees are distributing a survey to residents seeking feedback on programs and services. By engaging the Eagleton Center for Public Interest Polling, the Trustees can ensure that the survey results will be a valid reflection of your interests and concerns about the Library.
For direct access to the survey, visit https://go.rutgers.edu/11dwc9. Paper copies of the survey are available in Spanish at the Library. Any questions can be addressed to Library Director Alexandria Arnold. "Responses are very important and we look forward to hearing from our residents, " remarked Library Trustee Terry Thompson. "The survey should not take more than a few minutes to complete, and all the responses are strictly confidential."

Wreaths Across America Coming to Bernardsville
In December each year, Wreaths Across America coordinates wreath-laying ceremonies at more than 2,500 locations across the United States and abroad. Their goal is to place a wreath on the grave of every veteran. Their mission is to REMEMBER our fallen US veterans, HONOR those who serve, and TEACH our children the value of freedom. And now St. Bernard's cemetery at 60 Washington Avenue has signed on to participate in this important and solemn event. On December 18 at 2 p.m., a brief ceremony will be held at the cemetery, followed by the placing of wreaths on as many veteran graves as possible. You can take part by sponsoring a wreath ($15) or volunteering to place a wreath on December 18th. For more information, visit https://wreathsacrossamerica.org/pages/168720/.
Founded in 1902 and managed by St. Bernard's Church, St. Bernard's Cemetery welcomes burials from all walks of life and religions. There are 263 veteran graves at the cemetery.
