Join us for a new, different kind of book club. Instead of reading one specific book - join us for an informal chat about the movies, books or tv shows you have seen or watched (binged watched) recently that you loved. Or, tell us what and why you strongly disliked something. This is a great way to connect with other readers and get new book recommendations!

Cool news from us and Mayor McCormac: Woodbridge's eighth rain garden will be at the Main Library! Ground has broken and construction has started on the project, which will also be Rutgers' 50th rain garden, just in time for the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. This project will serve as an innovative engineering solution to help capture and treat storm-water run-off-- and it'll look great, too.

We love our local libraries and hope it's ok to post this here. Friends in/near Woodbridge, NJ and Port Reading, NJ: Please help find this sweet kitty! Dunbi escaped his carrier Oct. 5 in the parking lot at the Thomas Edison Service Area (rest stop) on I-95 southbound side, mile marker 92. He most likely went towards the wooded area, heading towards the houses on Port Reading Ave. His family is heartbroken and needs help finding him. Please report any possible sightings or new cats in the area to this page https://www.facebook.com/helpfindDUNBI (This is not my cat, I'm sharing this for Dunbi's family.)
Thank you for our craft
Another day (Tuesday), another project (bracelets). Thank you!
Thank you for our grab and go windmills. We can’t wait to pick up another project!
