Libraries would be divine even if all they did was house books for posterity. But then they also let us take those books (and DVDs and audio books) home, use them for FREE, and then bring them back so we can do it all over again. In Montclair, we’re doubly lucky because we get to visit the Terra Cafe at the Isabel Rose, housed in the library building, for fair trade chai or treats. Another reason to visit the library for more than intellectual or dietary pursuits is to feed your hunger for art. Every month a different exhibit gets the spotlight, and this month it’s a beautiful collection of paintings focused on music. And while you’re there, check out a book and pick up a Terra Bar.
