Ocean County Library’s Point Pleasant Boro branch celebrated its 25th anniversary Saturday with a day filled with programs and entertainment. And there was a wee bit of cake to sweeten the day!
The Friends of the Point Pleasant Boro Library also provided treats for people who stopped by to visit.
The branch was decorated with reminders of the 80’s. Teens created displays and in the back of the branch was a wall full of post-it notes with messages telling why our customers love their library.
The celebration began with Mr. Scott the Music Man presenting a family concert. Mr. Scott has enough energy to light up a small city and like the Energizer Bunny he just seems to go on and on and on…
Cake was served at noon and then two crafts were held: teens made Minecraft-themed cupcakes with Jenni of Jennicakes, and children made their own window-clings with Miss Robin.
There were also games and prizes for the kids.
The Strictly 60’s Band wrapped up the celebration with a concert of Golden Oldies, belting out hits straight from the 60s!
A sign in the Children’s Department welcomed people to Pt. Pleasant Boro’s 25th anniversary party!
Mr. Scott had the kids up & moving during his family concert.
Friends of the Pt. Pleasant Boro Library greeted people to the party and provided some refreshments.
Library Commission Chair Sal Baglio joined with Library Director Susan Quinn, branch staff and members of the library’s Friends group to celebrate the anniversary.
