July 2022 Events

Join us at Montclair Library in July for fun events for all ages. Remember: Masks are required inside all library locations so we can all stay healthy and keep having in-person events! (And if you’re not feeling well please stay home and take care of yourself.)

Poetry of the Senses: A Creative Writing Series
Come take a break from the demanding news of the day with The Poetry of the Senses, a series of six creative writing sessions at Montclair Branch Library. Each session will focus on finding inspiration from one of the senses, such as by viewing touching and tasting a blackberry, examining and smelling a lavender flower, looking at a painting, or visiting the library’s garden under the blue sky in the wind. Sessions will consist of inspiration time (model poem, discussion, sense experience), writing time, and sharing time.
