Old Bridge, NJ – Sept. 1, 2017 – The Old Bridge Public Library will present the following timely programs on hurricane preparation and fall planting tips this month:

On Sun. Sept. 10th at 2pm, the Library will host a program entitled, “How to Prepare for a Hurricane.” Presented by the Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T) of Old Bridge, the informative program will examine how to best prepare homes in the event of a big storm or other natural disaster. It will also provide tips on keeping family and pets safe. The C.E.R.T team is comprised of trained volunteers who provide critical support to first responders in emergency situations, as well as immediate assistance to victims. They also organize volunteers at disaster sites and provide assistance with non-emergency projects to improve the safety of the community.

On Wed. Sept. 27th at 7pm, there will be a program on Fall Planting for a Beautiful Spring. The autumn season is a prime time to start planning for spring gardens.  A representative from the Master Gardeners of Middlesex County will return to the Library to share tips on preparing gardens and soil as well as information on how to choose the right plants for the colder months.
