CLARK — When the Clark Public Library first opened in 1961, a small store held a collection of less than 600 books. Fifty years later, the library holds nearly 100,000 volumes and offers audiobooks, DVDs, Blu Ray, e-books, as well as free computer and Wi-Fi access.
The Clark community is invited to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Clark Public Library on Sunday, Oct. 23 from 2 – 4 p.m. State Sen. Nicholas Scutari, state Assemblywoman Linda Stender, Union County Freeholder Al Mirabella and Clark Mayor Sal Bonaccorso are among the local dignitaries scheduled to attend.
Beginning at 3 p.m., the David Aaron Trio will perform a free concert, featuring the music of the Big Band era. Additionally, children of all ages will enjoy balloon sculpting, featuring Kellei of KC’s Balloons starting at 2:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. Registration is not required for any of the events.
Library officials thanked Provident Bank and L’Oreal for their support of the 50th Anniversary Fundraising Campaign.
The Clark Public Library is located at 303 Westfield Avenue, Clark. For additional details about the celebration, call 1-732-388-5999 or visit www.clarklibrary.org.
