Residents will have the opportunity to explore New Jersey’s vintage treasures, test their classic rock trivia knowledge, and learn about a largely-forgotten World War I tragedy during programs at the Old Bridge Public Library in June. All programs are free and open to the public.
Retro Roadmap with Mod Betty will be held at 2 p.m. on June 1. The program will explore all the vintage treasures the Garden State has to offer.
Explosion at Morgan will be held at 1:30 p.m. on June 9. While WWI raged in Europe, America scrambled to supply the Allies with ammunition, and several munitions plants were constructed near the Jersey Shore. The hastily-built and inferior plants caused tragedy on the night of Oct. 4, 1918, when a series of explosions killed 100 people.
Adult Trivia Night will be held at 7 p.m. on June 11.
The Old Bridge Public Library is located at 1 Old Bridge Plaza at the corner of Route 516 and Cottrell Road in the Municipal Center. For more information, visit www.oldbridgelibrary.org or call 732-721-5600 ext. 5033.
