Island Heights Library to Celebrate its 40th Anniversary

January 08, 2018

ISLAND HEIGHTS – Celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Island Heights Branch of the Ocean County Library, 121 Central Ave. at 2:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 22.

This delectable celebration includes a special program sponsored by the Horizon Speakers Bureau and Judith Krail-Russo that will showcase the history of the cranberry in the Garden State.

Native Americans were using these tart berries as food, medicine, and dyes long before the white man arrived.  Between cranberry cultivation and culinary contributions, the history of the berry has a bite worth exploring.

This program is free but registration is required. To register, call 732-270-6266 or visit
