Branch libraries continue Saturday programs for children
Press Release 2/19/99

 

As part of the initiative that opened The Newark Public Library's branches on Saturdays, the branches continue to feature special children's events and educational programs.

Funding for Saturday programs was part of an initial $230,000 commitment from the Newark Public Schools, which enabled the library to purchase curriculum-related books and other instructional materials to help the students meet new core curriculum requirements that include library skills.
