Old Bridge, NJ – Nov. 1, 2016 – Diverse programming highlighted by a Trivia Night, white sharks seminar and Andy Warhol lecture will be featured at the Old Bridge Public Library in November.

The Library will offer two special programs on Sun., Nov. 13th. At 1:30pm, lifelong NJ resident and author David Veasey will present “Colonial Architecture in NJ.” He will speak about the state’s varied colonial architecture and present his latest book on the subject, New Jersey’s Colonial Architecture Told in 100 Buildings. An opportunity for book purchase and signing will follow the presentation.  Then, at 2:30pm, a “White Sharks are Great!” program will be presented by Dean W. Fessler of the Shark Research Institute.  Fessler will explain why the much maligned white shark is not a man-eating monster and will share his own experience interacting and conducting research on great white sharks around the world. Participants will learn about the ways these sharks are important to the ocean’s ecosystem and will get the chance to examine scuba gear, shark research equipment and fossilized shark teeth.

On Thurs. Nov. 17th, the Library will host an Adult Trivia Night at 7pm. This event promises to be an entertaining mix of pub trivia and TV game show. Space is limited, so participants must sign up as a team with a maximum of six people, or be placed on a wildcard team. Refreshments will be served and prizes will be awarded.
