Patrons of the Bradley Beach Library had an activity-filled summer enjoying a slew of events including an outside drum circle, bird watching program, and a children’s puppet show. Also included was a Summer Reading program for all ages as well as pickup curbside crafts for children and adults.
But now thoughts have turned to the fall season and all its offerings which, according to Bradley Beach Program Coordinator Cynthia Becker, “will not be losing steam into the fall.”
“We will be continuing our pickup events and a new drawing for a Kindle Fire. We are also planning a Marie Kondo Spark Joy information session, painting workshops and a program on understanding cats’ behavior. We will have a couple of outdoor programs in September including Family Bingo and a visit from the Monmouth County SPCA but after that the weather will be too unpredictable to plan for outdoor programs,” she said.
Becker said favorite programs of the community so far are the pickup curbside crafts and activities outside Family Bingo Wed., Sept. 8 at 3:30 p.m. All ages are invited for the free event and prizes will be awarded including books, small toys and office supplies.
The Writers Group continues to meet virtually every Monday morning at 11a.m. This group for adults is geared for practice and feedback for one another’s writing.
