We are so lucky to live in a city which, while it is always lively and vibrant, truly comes to life in summer. The beach would certainly be enough of a draw to Long Branch, but to add to it we have city sponsored concerts, car shows and of course the biggest Independence Day event in New Jersey, "OCEANFEST" which will be celebrating its 25th year next month! We also have yoga, children's programs, Shakespeare "in the park", author visits, computers, DVDs, CDs and, of course, books galore. All free, all at the Long Branch Public Library! No card? No problem! We have a book sale room where, for a whopping dollar you can get a hardcover book. Paperbacks are fifty cents each and perfect to take down on the sand. So enjoy the beauty of the Jersey Shore and, between sunning, swimming and snacking, stop by to say hello and enjoy all we offer!
