Avon Library Donation 2016

The Foundation is proud to help sponsor the NJ Hall of Fame Mobile Museum at the upcoming Avon Public Library Centennial celebration on August 20, 2016. The NJ Hall of Fame Mobile Museum is an interactive exhibit highlighting the many great accomplishments of Garden State citizens and will be the cornerstone of the Library's Centennial Celebration.


The summer adult learning program enjoyed a wonderful afternoon in Central Jersey wine country at Unionville and Old York Cellars. Participants learned about the vine to bottle process while exploring the vineyards and tank room. Throughout, we gained insight into New Jersey's agricultural industry.
