Welcome to Old Bridge Public Library’s summer reading program!

Summer Reading Kickoff

Start your summer with fun on Saturday, June 18th at our celebratory summer reading kickoff!  There will be crafts and programs for all ages, and a special performance for kids by the Rock n’ Roll Mother Goose at 11 a.m.

Come join Mother Goose as she takes children on a wild ride with this high energy performance filled with audience participation. Kids will laugh and sing as they re-enact a favorite story.  All attendees get a free ice cream after the program courtesy of Friendly’s!
