The weather was not ideal, but that didn’t stop families from joining others at the Montclair Public Library Bellevue Avenue Branch yesterday for the 2nd annual re-opening Celebration.

There was plenty to keep smiles on the littlest library-goers, from face painting to puppet shows—kids were entertained. Chanda Hall, our awesome photographer, captured those smiles.

It’s been two years since a volunteer citizens group, called Friends of Bellevue Avenue Library, helped to open the library on Mondays with an all-volunteer staff.
