You'll find plenty at the Library to get you in the holiday spirit! Come for music and performances, stories and crafts designed for this most wonderful time of the year.
Join us at the library for the Traveling Lantern Theatre's family-friendly performance of that holiday classic Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Enjoy this classic tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, the old geezer who only cares about money, and the night he is visited by three holiday spirits.
A Christmas Carol will be performed at three library branches:
11 a.m. Saturday, December 14 at
Library Headquarters, 125 Symmes Drive, Manalapan 07726
2 p.m. Saturday, December 14 at
Eastern Branch, 1001 Route 35, Shrewsbury 07702
6:30 p.m. Monday, December 16 at
West Long Branch, 95 Poplar Avenue, West Long Branch 07764
This show is suitable for ages 4 and up, and their families. The program is free, but you must pick up free tickets to attend at Eastern Branch and Library Headquarters. The tickets will be available at those two libraries at the Children's Desk in December.
