Virtual Week Long Event
November 16 – November 22
Ocean County Library connects its community to Appalachia in October, through the “Big Read” spotlight on the award-winning Burning Bright by Ron Rash.
The Ocean County Library and the Toms River Regional School District are collaborating on the Big Read, a grant program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest. The goal is to bring communities together in programming and conversation around a work of literature.

From Monday, October 12 through Tuesday, November 10, OCL’s Beanstack Challenge presents activities and virtual programs highlighting Burning Bright.
