Reducing Stress the Zen Way
Mondays July 12, 20 and 27
In this day and age, who isn't stressed, tense, and anxious about things
that were or things that will be? In this introductory class to Zen meditation,
longtime Zen teacher, and Haworth resident, Wally Koopalethes, will lead
a group through beginning meditation techniques that, with practice, may
help to relieve stress and tension in their lives. By learning laser-sharp focus
on breathing techniques and posture, the idea is that peace of mind and mental
clarity will follow.
The class will discuss some of the basic principles of Zen, in addition to
meditation techniques. Wally Koopalethes is a Zen teacher with over 35 years of
experience and has taught classes throughout northern New Jersey. She studied
at the Zen Mountain Monastery in Mt. Tremper, New York, and at Zen Garland in Wyckoff.
The classes will be held in the Community Room at the Haworth Library. You do not
need any previous experience with meditation to attend this class. For more information,
call the library at 201-384-1020.
BCCLS (Bergen County Cooperative Library System) Libraries
Open Doors to a World of Possibilities!
In 1979, libraries across Bergen County joined together to form a cooperative. The
cornerstone of BCCLS was then and is now resource sharing, enabling residents to use their
hometown library cards in other BCCLS libraries – giving them access to over 5.5 million items.
BCCLS has grown. There are now 77 member libraries with 81 locations in Bergen, Essex,
Hudson and Passaic counties. With over 713,000 cardholders and over 11 million items circulated
annually, BCCLS has expanded in a big way. Cardholders at BCCLS libraries can borrow books,
movies, magazines, music, video games, and more. They can access premium content databases,
e-books, digital magazines, streaming audio and video, and downloadable audiobooks. Library
users of all ages can participate in a wide range of programming. BCCLS libraries offer more than
As a way of celebrating the Summer of 2015 and all that our libraries offer, the Haworth Library
is participating in a summer scavenger hunt from July 1 through August 31.

entry form from each library, and be entered in our raffle. There will be two winners picked from
eligible entries - one adult (18 and over) and one for those 17 and under. The prize in each category
will be an American Express Gift Card. Collect stamps on the Scavenger Hunt from 25 different
libraries and you will be entitled to 2 entries. If you make it to all 77 libraries, you will get a 3rd entry.
Come have fun, explore new libraries, and join us in celebrating all that BCCLS libraries and your

IMPORTANT TAX INFORMATION
Many of our patrons have questioned why there is a line item for the library on their current tax bill. I want to assure you there is no additional tax revenue levied for the library. The New Jersey State Government has made it a state law requiring each town to separate the amount of money that the town pays toward the library from the municipal portion of the bill. This is not an additional tax, but what homeowners have been paying yearly.
