Kyra Seeley, Miss Ocean County, and Fox News reporter Tamara Laine stopped by Mancini Hall Friday afternoon to look over the prom gowns Ocean County Library was distributing for free to area teens.

Laine also interviewed Toms River branch manager Zarita Mattox and Erin DeLucia. Erin began the distribution program six years ago when she was a Young Adult librarian in Lakewood. That first year she distributed 25 gowns. This year more than 700 gowns were distributed in five branches.

Many thanks to the local residents who donated the gently used gowns, shoes and accessories to help fulfill the dreams of area teens.
