CRANFORD—Earth Day will be on April 22 this year. To celebrate the event, the Cranford Environmental Commission and the Cranford Public Library are teaming up.
The library will set up a display of books and DVDs with environmental themes. The books and DVDs will be on display and available for borrowing throughout April. The display will include a number of books donated to the library by the Environmental Commission in celebration of Earth Day. The library’s children’s room will also feature a similarly themed display for the younger set.
In addition, the Environmental Commission and the library will host a screening of “A Sense of Wonder” on Thursday, April 19, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. in the Cranford Community Center. “A Sense of Wonder” is a one-hour docudrama about Rachel Carson, author of the groundbreaking “Silent Spring.” Published in 1962 and praised by Booklist as “one of the great texts of the ecology movement,” “Silent Spring” is credited by many with helping launch the environmental movement.
The Community Center is located at 220 Walnut Avenue. Admission to the film program is free and all are welcome.
