Halloween Parade Float 2023

Bloomfield Public Library Halloween Float “Libraries Bring Communities Together” The Halloween Parade sponsored by the Lion’s Club is being held October 28th, 2023 at 10:00am in New Bloomfield. The parade begins at New Bloomfield Elementary School and ends at the Borough Building. The Bloomfield Public Library would love to incorporate the community in our “Libraries Bring Communities Together” float. Please note that a parent or caregiver MUST accompany the child in the parade.
We are looking to partner with local preschools, daycares and schools to create a float to present in the parade to show how the library is bringing together kids and families in the community. The float will feature a large sign with the phrase “Libraries Bring Communities Together” surrounded by paper handprints made by local preschools, daycares and school groups. Each person walking can wear a costume of their favorite book character and carry the book alongside them OR a printout of the book cover. If you need poster board or something printed for your costume, you are welcome to stop by the library during our open hours in October to pick up supplies. We will have construction paper, foam poster board and other various supplies available.

Bloomfield Public Library History

In 1976 the Bloomfield Public Library started as a Book exchange in the home of Michael Greaney under the operation of the New Bloomfield Civic Club.  By 1985 the exchange had grown into a type of lending library and was thus incorporated as the Bloomfield Public Library.  At the time of incorporation, the Bloomfield Borough recognized the Bloomfield Public Library as the community library and appointed seven trustees.

In 1987, the Borough council donated space for the approximately 5,000 volume Library in the Borough Building.  At that time the Library was funded through contributions from local sources, community groups and individuals.

Today the Library remains in the Borough Building and has grown to over 20,000 cataloged items. It is currently funded by state and local resources, community groups and patrons.  The Library welcomes donations of books, DVDs, audio books and current magazines.  Various programs are also offered to the public, and program ideas are always welcome.
