Club to discuss contemporary gothic novel The Waldwick Library Book Club will open its new season on Thursday, Sept. 10 at 7:15 p.m. with a discussion of Diane Setterfield’s “The Thirteenth Tale.” In this haunting and suspenseful novel, a bookish loner is summoned to the house of England’s most popular novelist, and commanded to write her biography. Written in the vein of the best gothic classics, this story-within-a-story is tinged with the eeriness of “Rebecca” and the willfulness of “Jane Eyre.” Copies of the book are available at the library circulation desk. The club welcomes new members and drop-ins regardless of residency. The library is located at 19 East Prospect Street in Waldwick. For more information, call (201) 652-5104.

Improvements to the Ho-Ho-Kus Town Green in the amount of $140,000 are also included in this measure. The ordinance appropriates a Bergen County grant of $55,000, permits a down payment of $4,050, and authorizes the issuance of $80,950 in bonds.

Resident Leo Strauss expressed his concerns about the borough’s spending. He asked for the terms of the bonds and the interest rates. Ho-Ho-Kus Borough Attorney told the resident that these projects are put out to bid individually. “The bottom line will be far more than $600,000,” Strauss said. He added his opinion that the expenditure for the Ho-Ho-Kus Town Green was ridiculous. Mayor Randall explained that funding from other sources may still be available and would reduce the overall costs. Strauss suggested that each item be put in a separate ordinance, so individual items could be defeated. J. CRUSCO Ordinances 30 minutes of your time can save a life.
