Seuss is on the Loose

We'll be celebrating the wacky, wonderful Dr. Seuss on Friday, March 2 at 11 am and 3:30 and, again, on Saturday at noon. There will be celebrity readers sharing their favorite stories. 

"We'll also be playing games and enjoying some sweets,"says Program Coordinator Sharlene Edwards.  "Reading is a serious thing, but it can also be fun! That's the way Dr. Seuss would want us to celebrate his birthday."

Arts at the Beach Poster Contest

On Saturday, kids from Bradley Beach and surrounding towns will have a chance to show their skills. Between 10 am and noon at the Carmen Biase Center, they can pick up materials and share ideas about posters that illustrate this year's theme: THE BEACH...What you love about it and how to keep it beautiful!

Everyone who attends the workshop will receive the materials they need to make their poster. The posters will be displayed in the windows of local businesses. For more details, check out the website: ttps://sites.google.com/site/artsatthebeach/

Festive Flutes at the Library

There was beautiful music at the Library on Sunday afternoon. A fantastic program -- everything from Vivaldi and Schumann to Gershwin and Berlin -- was enjoyed by kids and grownups alike.

"The Festive Flutes brought such beauty to our Library," says Program Coordinator Sharleen Edwards. "We are grateful they chose the Bradley Beach Library to kick off their spring season." This event was the first in a series of programs, entitled "A Flute Garden," that will be taking place in libraries throughout Ocean and Monmouth County.

The Festive Flutes are Emma Korolik, Gwendolyn Morris, Stephanie Sun and Carol Wasserman under the able direction of Founder Marjorie Koharski. For more information about the Festive Flutes, go to their website
