Old Bridge Public Library's Facebook Wall

Monday, July 31, 2006

The Suburban news weekly has extensive coverage of one of the popular programs for teenagers the library recently held: "That's because in "Teen Jeopardy" at the Old Bridge Public Library, the contestants couldn't care less about knowing the correct answers. These bubbly teens will take laughter and good times for $200, please. 'Oh, my brain hurts, all that thinking," Kathleen Schneider, 15, joked Monday night, sparking another round of laughter among the nearly 20 teens who gathered for the game. "Gosh, this is so intense.'"
