Learn about the Jersey Shore

If you have ever wondered why there is an elephant-shaped building on the beach in Margate or how some of the Jersey Shore towns got their unique names, come to Bernardsville Public Library on Wednesday, August 4 at 7:00 pm to listen to author Kevin Woyce give a colorful tour of Jersey Shore history.

Mr. Woyce will range from shipwrecks to lighthouses, from the first seaside resorts to today’s most popular boardwalks. His talk will be accompanied by slides of original photographs of landmarks and vintage images of historic sites, events and people.

The author of Jersey Shore History & Facts and Hudson River Lighthouses & History, Mr. Woyce is a lifelong resident of the Garden State who lives with his wife in Lyndhurst, New Jersey. His next book will be about historic places and events along the Connecticut coast.

There is no charge to attend the program, but advance sign-up is requested. Register online at http://www.bernardsvillelibrary.org/ and follow the link under Adult Programs, or call the library at 908-766-0118 to sign up.
