Pirate’s Love the Ocean County Library… aarrrrggghhh

Cathy Lynch and Gigi Hayes of the Barnegat branch participated in the 18th annual Pirates’ Day in downtown Barnegat on Saturday, September 11th.

The library booth was visited by hundreds of would be pirates from across Ocean County and as far away as Ridgewood, NJ.

Over 300 people entered to win a gift basket filled with library goodies. Countless numbers of child pirates in training hoped to win a piece of library booty by playing the library’s spinning wheel, while we answered questions about the library system and upcoming programs at the Barnegat branch.

The pirates & pirate wannabes were treated to a special visit from SPARKS!
