Children’s Programs at The Dowdell Library

SOUTH AMBOY — Summer is finally here, and with it brings fun programs at the Dowdell Library of South Amboy! There will be plenty going on for toddlers, children, and teens for the month of July and August while school is out. July is “Music Playlist Month!” For the entire month, kids can suggest their favorite songs, and the library will create a big playlist for them to listen to for two hours per day. The one song that gets suggested the most, will win a prize for the kids who suggested it.

Also, in August the library will have a “Build-Your-Own Robot” Contest! Kids can build them in groups and the best robot will win a prize. This summer, Pirate School will be on July 23rd at 2:00 pm. Come dressed in a costume; learn how to be a pirate and what it takes to sail the open sea.

On August 23rd at 3:30 pm, “Dragons and Dreams” Science Experiments will be at the Library. Come watch as our Scientists tell a story using experiments. Sign up for these two special programs must be done ahead of time.

The Dowdell Library will also be having many summer giveaways for young adults up to the age of seventeen. Through TD Bank: any child who reads ten books this summer will receive a ten dollar gift card. For every fifth book that a child enters into their summer reading log, they will receive a ticket for a free game of bowling at Majestic Lanes while supplies last. Through Rutgers University: every child who reads one summer reading book will receive a ticket to a Rutgers Football game in September. Also, any child who takes out two summer reading books will receive a coupon for Dorney Park. There will be a lot going on at the library this summer, so don’t forget to drop in!

The library is adjacent to the South Amboy High School off O’Leary Blvd. Library hours are Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday 10am – 8 pm; Wednesday and Friday 10am – 5pm. Directions:
