Friends of WTPL Giving Tree
The holiday season will get into full swing at the Washington Township Public Library on December 1, when Friends of WTPL will put up their annual Giving Tree...
A cooperative outreach project between the Friends organization and the Long Valley Food Bank, this festive tree offers community members a convenient place to give holiday gifts to fellow citizens who may be in need.
Warm gloves or mittens, hats, scarves, socks and slippers can be hung as decorations on the tree, and nonperishable food items and dry goods can be placed around the base of the tree. Items are requested for both adults and children. On December 15, these donated items will be delivered to the Food Bank, located at the Long Valley Presbyterian Church on Bartley Road, for distribution the next day.

This Month's Art Display
Our December art display is provided by Long Valley resident Mark Rogers, a self-taught landscape and nature photographer. Originally from Wales, Mark has lived in the United States since 2003...
Mark writes, "My work is very detail focused and is best seen large. My aim when I make photographs is to create images that provoke emotion but have the detail that produces a lasting relationship with the image on subsequent viewings."
