OCL hosted more than 600 people in 2 Saturday night programs

Ocean County Library’s Toms River branch hosted more than 600 people at two events presented Saturday evening.

WABC-TV Senior Meteorologist, 10-time Emmy Award winner, and author Bill Evans spoke about his books and experiences as a weather forecaster to 225 people in the library’s Mancini Hall.

Evans, author of four novels and a book about weather for children, talked about climatology and addressed people’s concerns about extreme weather, as well as the adventures he experienced while reporting about the weather.

He also spoke to the students in the audience about careers in meteorology.

Sentimental Journey’s “Salute to Big Bands” drew over 380 people to the open-air concert in the courtyard and featured patriotic-themed songs from the World War Two era.

Upcoming concerts at the Toms River branch include The Toms River Municipal Band (Friday Aug 10); The Roustabouts (Sunday Aug. 12); The Spampinato Brothers (Friday Aug 17); The Frank Albert Dance Band (Saturday Aug. 18); and Renaissance Raconteurs (Sunday Aug. 19.)

The concerts, presented by Ocean County Parks and Recreation, begin at 7 p.m.  They are free and open to the public. Bring your own chair.
