SPOTSWOOD, NJ - From story time to crafts to movies, the Spotswood Public Library has helped to keep kids reading and actively engaged during the summer months. Since the coronavirus pandemic hit New Jersey in late March, the Spotswood Public Library has offered adults and children different programs through its Facebook page. This summer, the library is putting its popular reading program for kids online as well.
The summer reading program began earlier this month. However, it is not too late for children to join the private group on Facebook. To join, parents simply need to click on the join icon on the Spotswood Public Library Summer Reading Facebook page.
On Thursday, the library will be hosting Steve the Magic Conductor's Magic Show at 7 p.m. The show premieres live on July 23 and will be available for viewing on the Summer Reading Facebook page until Sunday, July 26. Patrons can get access to other programs through the Spotswood Public Library's main Facebook page.
The library is offering its popular Adult Crafts program with kits-to-go. Kits are offered for two weeks or until supplies last. The library will telephone registered patrons in order to arrange a pick up time. Kids take-away craft kits are also being offered for ages five to eight and nine to 12. Registration for both adult and kids take-away craft kits can be completed online. Pickup times are arranged by telephone.
The Main Street library remains closed to the public, but library card holders can still take out books through the library's takeout program. Holds can be place on Spotswood Public Library books and materials only online. Items can them be picked up in person through scheduled appointments. Details can be found on the Spotswood Public Library's website.
