The Young Adult August calendar is now available online! Check it out and sign up for some of our great events now, before they fill up. We have tie die, book bingo, jewelry making and more!
Have you met your summer reading goals yet? If not, maybe you should check out some of these retellings of classic and/or fairy tales. There are many more not on these lists, can you name any?
Come join us for the Family Film Cafe showing of The LEGO Movie on Tuesday, July 22 at 7-8:45 PM.
The Fourth of July has passed, and that means summer has truly started. You may already be sick of the pool, although we doubt it, but just in case you want to vary your routine a bit, why not try one of the “Free and Almost Free Places” for fun in New Jersey (and some in nearby states)? This site has 50 places/activities listed, and there are more in the comments. Check it out and see what other places or lists you find on your own!
This week (and every week this summer) we have tons of great programs both at the main library and the Franklin Park branch!
In the Children’s department we have puppet shows (every Monday at 2:30 PM this summer), learn to play chess (every Monday at 6:30 pm this summer), legos, a magic show, scrapbooking, the Muppets from Space movie, and much more! Our Children’s department has two programs a day, every day, Monday – Friday throughout the summer. Come enjoy!
Young Adults aren’t left out. This week “what’s an abacus?” and “young adult book bingo” are happening with great activities and prizes! The YA Yarn Club at the Franklin Park branch also starts this week, so break out the knitting and crochet!
Our adults have chess club, bobbin lacemaking, the Summer Concert series, free movies (Lone Survivor and The Grand Budapest Hotel for July), computer classes on Microsoft Excel and Powerpoint, and more this month!
Get all the details on these great programs and find out if you need to register at the appropriate calendar (links above). You’ll also be able to see where the event is held, at the Main or Franklin Park branch.
Come in, engage in one of our fantastic programs, and let us know what you think!
