Did You Know? Children's Services at the Monmouth County Library

E-mail Print PDF

 

Did you know that the Monmouth County Library offers more than just storytimes for children?  We offer children’s DVDs at all of our branches; downloadable magazines for children available through our new offering, Flipster; and digital resources to help children do their homework and other projects for school.  We offer special programs such as LEGO® Clubs, crafts, Read to a Therapy dog, and plenty more.  And, the storytimes are pretty special, too, as we customize them for babies under age 2 (siblings are welcome), for toddlers, pre-K kids, and family groups.  Each of our branches has a children’s librarian, and you can find a schedule of activities on our website under Children.

We have many online databases for children that can be used in the library, or from home (with a valid library card).  These include the DK Eyewitness books, Facts on File with reference material covering history, science, health, literature and an atlas, Tumblebooks with read-along picture books, and Searchasaurus with magazine articles, dictionary, and encyclopedia.  Kids can also learn a world language using Kidspeak for 6-year-olds and up; eleven languages are taught through animations, puzzles and songs. 

wizardChildren’s eBooks and audiobooks can be downloaded from our Library on the Go to a tablet or eReader.  They are available with a valid resident library card.

Several of our libraries have Early Literacy Stations that offer an all-in-one touchscreen computer intended for children ages 2 to 8.  These stations are not connected to the Internet so this offers a safe and secure learning environment for your child.  You can find them at the Library’s Headquarters in Manalapan, Eastern Branch in Shrewsbury, Hazlet Township, Ocean Township, Marlboro and Howell branches.

March is a great month to come to the library and reacquaint your family with our children’s programs.  Make sure to stop by our Children’s Book Fair held on Saturday, March 28th at the Library’s Headquarters at 125 Symmes Drive in Manalapan.  The fun starts at 1 pm and runs through 4 pm.  This year’s Fire and Ice theme welcomes children of all ages to spend the afternoon in a magical kingdom, experience the Sciencetellers’ Dragons and Dreams show, see a live penguin, do crafts and meet NJ author Leeza Hernandez!

If you can’t make it in March, you can always find something exciting for your children and yourself at the Library.  Check out our website and call your local branch for more information. Come to the Monmouth County Library for books, eBooks, electronic magazines, research tools and fun!  You can find it all at the Library!

 

Did you know? AARP Tax Aide is available at the Monmouth County Library

E-mail Print PDF

taxesDid you know the AARP Foundation offers free income tax preparation at the Monmouth County Library?  The AARP Foundation through its trained Tax-Aide volunteers offers free preparation for simple Federal and NJ tax returns only.  This service is offered at three of our branches: the Eastern Branch in Shrewsbury, Headquarters in Manalapan and the Wall Township branch. This service is available on a first-come, first-served basis only.  No appointments are available.  A limited number of returns are prepared each session.  

Please note that all taxpayers must be present when their tax return is prepared.  If filing a joint return, both taxpayers must be present.  Because of the changes to the tax laws, new documents are required this year. Tax Aide starts February 2nd in Eastern Branch in Shrewsbury, February 9th at Wall Township Branc and February 19th at Headquarters in Manalapan. You can download our flyer or call your local branch for more information about specific times, locations and required forms.
