MANAHAWKIN – Join us at the Stafford branch of the Ocean County Library on Monday, November 23rd , from 11:00-1:00 for a “Journey to Wellness,” presented by the Mental Health Association of New Jersey.

The “Wellness on Wheels” RV will be parked in the library lot and will provide an environment of support to individuals who are experiencing mental health and/or substance abuse concerns. This peer-run, self-help center empowers individuals having problems with alcohol, drugs, stress, anxiety, depression, etc., to achieve and maintain their wellness, and realize their full potential. This is a non-profit organization, all discussion is confidential, and no fees are involved. No appointment is necessary.


MANAHAWKIN – The Stafford branch of the Ocean County Library will host the program – “String of Purls” on Thursday, December 3rd from 1:00 – 2:30 PM.

Whether you’re just learning to knit, crochet, embroider, etc., already know how, or want to know what a “purl” is, join our group where experts will be available to answer your questions. Find that creative streak you know you have with this craft that has recently enjoyed an explosion of interest.

For beginners, bring size 10 knitting needles and light-colored 4-ply worsted yarn. To crochet, bring the same type of yarn, and a size “I” crochet hook. If you’re more advanced, bring the project you’re working on. Also an excellent way to exchange ideas.


MANAHAWKIN – Join us at the Stafford branch of the Ocean County Library at 7:00 PM on Thursday, December 3rd for “Sharpen Your Computer Skills.”

Learn how to navigate the Web efficiently; learn about Internet safety and security; learn how to set up and retrieve folders and files, and more. You must have mouse and basic Internet skills.

There will be a half hour of presentation of the material, and the rest of the time will be practical hands-on and questions. This is a perfect opportunity to build computer confidence in a world that keeps telling us to “check our website.”
