June Adult Programming Wrap Up

We celebrated the start of summer this June with some really awesome adult programs! Here is a recap of what events took place this month. 

Lectures: 

We started off the month with the motivational talk Master Your Inner Critic. We learned how to gain confidence in ourselves and overcome self-discoragment.  

We wrapped up our 3 part “Be Money Wise” series with Livingston’s M&T Bank with a lecture on Identity Theft and Protection. We also enjoyed a historical art lecture on A Window into Stained Glass, and the lecture Seduced by the Light: The Mina Miller Edison Story. 

Looking for fun day trips this summer? We also enjoyed the travel talk You Are Here: A NJ Travel Guide

Games:

Adults and children enjoyed a special Father’s Day Board Game Night in the Library’s program room. 

Adults also enjoyed our first Drop-in Adult Gaming event. Drop-in Adult Gaming takes  place on the second Monday of the month from 11am – 1pm. 

Book Clubs:

There is nothing we enjoy more than discussing books! This month we enjoyed our in-person Thrilling Tales book club, our virtual Let’s Talk About Books, Bookish Vibes book club and author visit with Micahel Laser, and Crime Time book clubs. 

Creative Arts: 

Those looking to get crafty enjoyed our drop-in Crafternoon crafting workshop. We also enjoyed a special Pride Month Friendship Bracelet craft. Creatives also enjoyed the first session in our Summer Threads cross-stitch workshop. 

Movies and Musical Entertainment:

Adults enjoyed an evening and an afternoon matinee showing of our Movie of the Month, Decision to Leave

Adults also enjoyed a special musical performance and lecture where John Arthur presented A Century of Folk and Singer-Songwriters 1920-2020.

Seniors enjoyed a special Senior Happening performance where Susie Susan Speidel & Joe Regan Present “Name That Tune.”

Special For Summer:

We celebrated the first day of summer and International Yoga Day with a special Summer Solstice Yoga workshop.  We also kicked-off the start of Adult Summer Reading. Adult Summer Reading runs from 6/27 – 8/4. Every adult item checked out earns you a raffle ticket to our weekly prize drawing! 

Adults are also invited to participate in our Community Journal Project. Stop by the reference desk from 6/27 – 8/4 to continue the story by writing a few sentences or a short paragraph in our community journal! 

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

See you soon!
