April Adult Programming Wrap Up

We celebrated  the beginning of spring with some wonderful adult programs this month. Below is a recap of April 2023’s events. 

We learned a lot this April  with some fabulous lectures on a wide variety of subjects, starting with a celebration of NJ music with the lecture Bruce Springsteen: Born in New Jersey.  In honor of Financial Literacy Month, we hosted a lecture on Budgeting Why and How in partnership with Livingston’s M&T Bank. This was the first program in a 3 part series.

Sleep is an important part of our daily lives! In partnership with RWJ Barnabas, we hosted a lecture on Sleep Hygiene

Just as sleep is important, so is sustainability. In celebration of Earth Day, we hosted a lecture on Integrating Sustainability into Our Daily Lives.  

Those looking to explore different flavors this spring enjoyed a workshop on Cooking with Essential Oils

Do you want to learn more about the Library’s digital resources? Our Tech librarian led a workshop on Learning Libby this month. Stay tuned for more tech workshops coming in the future. 

Those looking to expand their gardening knowledge enjoyed the workshop Lettuce Being!, where participants were able to plant seeds to start their own lettuce plants!  We also enjoyed a lecture on The Garden State in Bloom.

We love to get crafty! We enjoyed our drop-in Crafternoon workshop, Hooks & Needles afternoon and evening meetings, a Black-Out Poetry Workshop (April is National Poetry Month!), and a Mother’s Day Flower Pot Workshop in collaboration with the Youth Services Department.  

We were very happy to host two wonderful musical performances this spring. Music lovers of all ages enjoyed our seasonal Music Matters Concert with a special performance by Ellie’s Jazz Quartet.  Seniors enjoyed our monthly Senior Happening with a performance by  James Austin Jr.  

We hosted a special Thursday Matinee movie screening of “Living” in the Library’s program room. 

Author Peter Zablocki joined us this month to discuss his historical non-fiction book, Bullets that Changed America.  We also enjoyed our very first Chinese Language Conversation group, a perfect place for those who speak Chinese to connect with the community! 

We wouldn’t be a library without books! Our Let’s Talk About Books book club, Crime Time book club, and Bookish Vibes book club and author visit with Alice Elliot Dark also met this April. 

Be sure to visit our events calendar to see all of the wonderful programs we have planned for May. 

See you soon!
