Manasquan Library gears up for April virtual events


MANASQUAN — The Manasquan Library is keeping its youngest patrons busy with a variety of virtual activities planned for the month of April.

The library continues to hold Sweetheart Stories for children ages 10 to 24 months, as well as Toddler Tales and Craft for children ages 2 and up every Monday on its YouTube channel: The toddler program is about 15 minutes long and includes a story and make-at-home craft. 

The library also offers Picasso on the Go as part of its school-age programs. Make-at-home crafts and directions are available for curbside or walk-in pickup at the library.


The library also encourages patrons to celebrate Diversity in Action this month with a special virtual event on Saturday, April 17 at 10 a.m. with Seema Moondra of Enjoy Explore India.

School-age children in kindergarten and up will enjoy a unique, interactive workshop honoring India’s national bird, the peacock. Attendees will “discover the art and culture of India through storytelling and design [their] own piece of peacock artwork,” according to a flyer for the event.

Children should have crayons, markers, pencils and papers ready at home to complete the project. Advanced registration is required and begins April 3 on the Monmouth County Library’s website. A Zoom link will be emailed to registered participants the day before the event.
