Group Teaches ‘Aquatic ABCs’ at Libraries

Jun 28, 2017

The Ocean County Library System will offer “Aquatic ABCs” with the Center for Aquatic Sciences at several branches during July. Children will learn about aquatic animals from alligators to zebra sharks using letter cards and live animals.

The center will promote understanding, appreciation and protection of aquatic life and habitats to children. The program teaches conservation as part of the library’s Summer Reading program, which features the theme of “Build a Better World.”

The performances will take place on Monday, July 10, at the Waretown branch at  2 p.m. and later that day at the Long Beach Island branch in Surf City at 6.

The Barnegat branch will host the program on Monday, July 17, 10:30 a.m.

The center was founded in 1989 in Camden and has since been advancing the understanding of and concern for aquatic animals and their habitats. The center’s mission is “education and youth development through promoting the understanding, appreciation and protection of aquatic life and habitats.” In performing this mission, the center strives to be a responsible member of the community, assisting in its economic and social redevelopment by providing opportunities for education, enrichment and employment.
