To our friends, patrons, visitors and colleagues:
Summer reading in the Children’s Room is underway and lots of children are busy reading away. Every ten books you read means a prize and entry in the weekly raffle! Ms. Sira has put together some amazing raffle prizes – if your name is selected in the weekly drawing you get to choose your prize!
Story time is Tuesday at 10:30 with Ms. Sira – and she has added Thursday at 1:30 too! It is loads of fun! Stories and singing and lots of clapping!
Conversational English is every Thursday evening – if English isn’t your first language, come on by and chat with other folks who are also learning. Lively topics make it fun and interesting.
It is not yet the dog days of summer but pretty close! We are nice and cool inside the Red Bank Public Library! On Tuesday mornings we offer free coffee – so plan your visit accordingly! Plan to stay awhile and enjoy a quiet morning gazing out over the beautiful Navesink River!
The Dinosaur and Leni Lenape Indian fossils and artifacts display is still going on. Request a pass to visit the second floor of the library - you will be amazed at what you find up there!
And thank you to all the volunteers who came out to the Rockin’ Country Festival to help the Red Bank Public Library. It was a great weekend and every fundraiser helps bring us closer to our goal of opening on Saturdays.
News Flash! The Library and the Friends will be participating in the annual Sidewalk Sale July 25th, 26th and 27th. The Friends will be setup at 46 Broad St, in front of Alan Fisher Jewelers (thanks to Alan for this primo spot!) and will have new and almost new books for sale. Historic Red Bank will be the theme of the popup store at 27 Monmouth St. (former home of Wooly Monmouth) and the Library will be showing photographs from our historic collection. We will also be handing out questionnaires about growing up in Red Bank and asking long time residents to fill it out as part of a student oral history project.
Red Bank Public Library - It's the most remarkable place in town.
