Celebration Planned for Brick Library Opening

Event on Saturday will include a puppet show and children's activities

The Brick branch of the Ocean County Library will mark its reopening Saturday with a community celebration.

Beginning at noon, there will be a ribbon cutting, speakers, tours, a performance by the Ocean County Library Puppet Show Players, activities for children and a visit from Sparks, the library mascot.

There will also be entertainment by the Richard Reiter Swing Band and refreshments provided by the Ocean County Vocational Technical School's culinary arts program.

The opening will also feature demonstrations of Playaways and E-readers.

Many of the activities were provided through donations and fundraising on the part of the Friends of the Brick Library group.

The Brick branch of the county library system, which is used by some Point Pleasant residents, is the most visited branch countywide.

As part of the building's interior has been redesigned to increase floor space by approximately 3,000 square feet.

Ocean County Library Commission Chairman Henry J. Mancini has said the project has created meeting room and study spaces, a children's story corner, a new teen area, and a conference room that can serve a dual purpose as a computer instruction lab. The branch also has 10 new computers for the lab.

I must say one thing. Since Brick Library has been closed for the renovations, I have been behind some Brick residents in line at the Point Boro Library. Every single one of them has said how much better they like Point and intend to continue to go there even after the opening. That says it all about how great our library and its people are. OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!
