St. James Street Fair, Hispanic Heritage Month and Sewaren Free Public Library Street Fair
Community Engagement Staff provided a Pop Up Library for the Woodbridge Township Backpack Giveaways in August where they were also able to supply library cards and information. Special thanks to everyone who donated school supplies, backpacks and support for this very successful project.
On Saturday, September 18th, Woodbridge Public Library Staff will host a Pop Up Library at the St. James Street Fair 10 am - 5 pm featuring book giveaways and activities. Library staff, information and activities will also be available at the annual Hispanic Heritage Cultural Fest in Tanzman Park from 12 - 5 pm.

The following Saturday, September 25th, WPL has been invited to participate in the Sewaren Free Public Library Street Fair and Grand Opening. Visit for a tour of the new, tech savy, independent library, and stop at the WPL photo booth and info giveaway. Renew your card there for amnesty from fines and fees and a fresh start in 2021!

From the IRS phone scam to lottery and sweepstakes scams, to the so-called grandparent scam, it appears that imposter frauds and other criminal scams are more active than ever— and are preying on potential victims in New Jersey through phone calls, emails, and other means. 

Don’t get scammed!! Please join us on virtually on September 20 @ 2:30 PM as a representative from the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs tells us how to AVOID GETTING SCAMMED.

Register here.

Join us for an interactive discussion about history that often isn't included in classrooms. We will enjoy coffee and pastries while we learn about important Hispanic people that made impactful changes to our country. Come ready to learn and enjoy some cultural delights!
