The Old Bridge Central Library will host a concert of acoustic music on Saturday, November 18th at 1:30 p.m., presented by guitarist Dave Simmons. Simmons states, “Whenever I play it the sound pulls me from note to note much like words in a book. Until just recently, I couldn't explain how I could write a new song weekly, than I realized, I was writing about my life. My songs are free flowing, emotional and created in a variety of styles, just what you'd expect if you were writing the soundtrack to your life.” For more information, please call (732) 721-5600 ext. 5033.

Please join us on November 5 at 2:00 p.m. at the opening of "To Tomorrow's Children," Holocaust Exhibit with special guest speaker Sy Siegler. As time marches on, we are faced with the reality that future generations will not be able to meet Holocaust survivors and hear their stories firsthand. We asked these survivors to provide a story from their Holocaust lives accompanied by their message to tomorrow's children, a legacy they wish to be remembered and taught.
