November Programs at the Watchung Library

(above) The Wang family of Watchung recently enjoyed reading at the Library. Reading aloud as a family has been shown to enhance the quality of caregivers’ relationships with their children and reduce stress, while also improving children’s cognitive development. The Somerset County Library System of New Jersey’s (SCLSNJ) collection allows families the opportunity to connect while exploring new adventures through the pages of books.
