If you print your tickets, you may bring them directly to the program, which will be held in the Community Room.
We know that’s a bit far away and that you just can’t get enough LEGOs however, so enjoy these great dioramas of Libraries and Bookstores!   What can you come up with? Share your LEGO designs with us!

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!

Don’t forget to take advantage of our great free summer programs too… check out our adultyoung adult and children’s calendars!
