Toms River library friends sponsor Titanic trip

The Friends of Ocean County Library’s Toms River branch will host a bus trip to “Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition” at the Franklin Institute, Philadelphia, Thursday March 14.

The trip will cost $85 and includes transportation, gratuities, admission and lunch at Positano Coast Restaurant. For more information or to make a reservation telephone Marie (732) 270-4625.

On April 14, 1912 the RMS Titanic, the world’s largest ship of its time, sank into the Atlantic after colliding with an iceberg. More than 1,500 people died.

“Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition” honors the centennial anniversary of that disaster by telling the stories of 19 passengers aboard the ship and displaying more than 300 items retrieved from the wreck site.

The exhibit takes visitors on a chronological trip, from the ship’s creation to the ship’s final moments. It will also include the recreation of the ship’s social hub, The Grand Staircase, that was featured in the 1997 Academy award-winning movie.
