Happy Mother's Day!

Library service is back in Laurence Harbor.

Beginning Tuesday, May 3, 2022 the Old Bridge Public Library

will once again be setting up shop, this time in the Recreation Center building

at Laurence Harbor Beach Front Park.

Sharing space with the Township Parks and Recreation Department,

the library will be offering books, magazines, newspapers, computers, and occasional programs.

Operating hours will be Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday 1:00 – 5:00 PM,

and an outside bookdrop will allow return of materials 24/7.

We look forward to seeing you there.

What happened to the Lost Colony of Roanoke remains a mystery, but the women who descended from Eleanor Dare have long known that the truth lies in what she left behind: a message carved onto a large stone and the contents of her treasured commonplace book. The Lost Book of Eleanor Dare is a spellbinding, beautiful story written by a graceful hand.
