Library's Junior Friends Kicked Off Summer with Ice Cream
The Junior Friends of the Library hosted its second annual ice cream sundae and movie screening event while also preparing for the library's upcoming summer bash.
The Junior Friends of the Hasbrouck Heights Library hosted its second annual Sundae Making and Movie Night last Wednesday, kicking off the summer break in a relaxing way to mark the end of the school year.
Justin Watrel, who moderates the Junior Friends program, said 13 Junior members, their parents and grandparents along with members of the Friends of the Library enjoyed strawberry ice cream sundaes made with Hershey Ice Cream. The ice cream was generously donated by Alex Reyes of Fisher’s Café, the Juniors sponsor for the evening.
Members and their guests created their own ice cream delights with various toppings, whipped cream and topped it with a cherry. Members participated in an art project to benefit the library for the upcoming Aug. 3 Summer Bash event.
The group enjoyed watching the movie “Hugo”, the winner of five Academy Awards. The movie is fictionally based on the mysterious life of director George Meles.
The Sundae Making and Movie Night is one of the free programs the Junior Friends of the Library sponsors exclusively for its members and guests during the year.
Other Junior Friends benefits are discounts to local merchants through the Friends ‘Merchants Program’, access to free programs sponsored by the Juniors throughout the year and attending Friends meetings.
The Junior Friends of the Hasbrouck Heights Library is a branch of the Friends of the Hasbrouck Heights Library and whose mission it is to provide quality and educational events that enrich and broaden a child’s world while promoting family time at the Hasbrouck Heights Library.
Membership is $5 and is open to all card-carrying library members between the ages of 4 to 17.
