Ocean County Library staff added to the fun of Lacey Day, held Aug. 9 at Gille Park in the Forked River section of Lacey Township.

The annual community event drew hundreds of people and featured a variety of vendors and performers. The activities included games, bands, demonstrations, crafts and free hot dogs, hamburgers and beverages.

The Lacey Branch was represented among the many community groups present. The branch’s outreach team included Branch Manager Nancy Voitko and fellow staff members Ellen Regan and Megan Schantz. Helping out at the outreach table was Nancy Conway, a member of the Friends of the Lacey Library. 

The outreach team promoted Lacey Branch programs such as Anime Afternoons, Railroad Histories of Ocean County, Maker Teen Tuesdays, Citizen Preparation classes, Meet the Mayor (Lacey Mayor Gary Quinn) as well as volunteer groups such as TAB (Teen Advisory Board) and the Friends of the Lacey Library.

Public Information Officer Bob Vosseller, Public Information Assistant Gina Conti and department intern Daniel Fitzpatrick were also present to assist with OCL’s presence at the event.

“It is always fun to outreach at Lacey Day. It is like having a reunion of friends, neighbors and community partners. We distributed a lot of literature about library services and programs,’’ Voitko said.

Ocean County Freeholder Gerry P. Little and Lacey Mayor Gary Quinn visited the library table while greeting attendees of Lacey Day. During their visit they discussed library services and their impact on the community.

Staff members of the Lacey Branch are planning to participate in the annual Lacey Apple Festival being held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 27 located between the Lacey Schoolhouse Museum and the Forked River Fire House off Route 9.

“We are looking forward to that event which represents another great opportunity to reach out to the community about all of what the Ocean County Library has to offer,’’ Voitko said.
