Even though Montclair, New Jersey has fewer than 40,000 residents, it boasts of many parks, a diverse population, and a strong interest in the arts. 

The town even has a fine art museum, situated on a beautiful street with quite a few splendid mansions.

Mad Librarians!

 
I think this library in a wealthy New Jersey township has some angry librarians. 

Budget cuts have forced the main library to be closed on Mondays, and the tiny branch library (in the exclusive section of Upper Montclair) is ONLY open on Mondays.

Yes, the town has two library buildings.

One of the signs in the next photo (in front of the main library) has the names of the Town Council and how to contact them.

Yes, they're mad.
