In boroughs and towns across the Garden State, local public libraries serve as community hubs: hosting events, offering technology services, helping residents ask resources, displaying artwork, and, of course, lending books. In Metuchen, the public library is also home to the Metuchen Makery, a makerspace helping residents cultivate their creativity and imagination.

This February, residents can look forward to a range of events on offer at the library. On many Mondays, the library hosts a movie social from 2 to 4pm; this month, the movies are Something’s Gotta Give on the 3rd, Father of the Bride on the 10th and Manhattan on the 24th — making for a month of Diane Keaton features. Want to learn computer programming? On the 2nd and 23rd, the library will be offering introductory workshops in learning Python, one of the most popular programming languages in the world. On Fridays at 1:30pm, there’s line dancing; on the 27th there’s soap making. Plus, this month offers a class on women’s heart health, a census job fair, a board game night and more. For a full rundown of this month’s offerings, visit the library’s online calendar.
