National Library Week April 10 - 16: Libraries Transform
& Bookmobile Day on April 13
Go beyond the book shelf. Celebrate National Library Week by trying something different. Libraries have many new and emerging services, classes and workshops to offer users. Indeed, it is the changing needs and desires of the public that keep libraries in a constant state of transformation.
The South Brunswick Public Library, 110 Kingston Lane in Monmouth Jct., offers free classes and workshops on any given topic every day of every week. Try any one our SMART Lab resources, view free popular movies, or reserve a Friends Museum Pass. There is so much to explore, including literally hundreds of activities on site and online for all ages.
Many of our current classes are being inspired by the 2016 South Brunswick Reads theme S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math).
Our Chromebooks are now available and users can anticipate borrowing Playaway Launchpads on site very soon. The technologically curious will also be able to take a workshop to learn more about using our new 3D printer.
SBPL is taking this spotlight opportunity during National Library Week to announce an honor for our Director Chris Carbone. In May, Mr. Carbone will be installed as the President of the New Jersey Library Association. SBPL staff, Friends, Foundation, and Trustees are very proud of our director.
Since 1958, National Library Week has been a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. All types of libraries - school, public, academic and special - participate.
