Many local residents were on hand to share in the celebration of this milestone for the Pompton Lakes Library.
“The establishment of a friends group in 2016 is really starting to take effect. And we’re really encouraged by the turn out for our events, including the 105th Birthday Party”, said Steve Edgeller.
