  • The Friends of the Library will sponsor a bus trip to the Grounds of Sculpture on Saturday Sept. 29th 2018. The Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ, is home to over 300 sculptures on 42 acres. There is a lot of walking, but the surface is flat and the pace leisurely. The cost of $75.00 per person includes bus, driver gratuity, admission, and guided tour. No outside food is allowed, but there are eating establishments on the grounds. The bus will leave from the library, 3700 Mechanicsville Road, Whitehall, PA 18052, at 8:30 AM on Saturday, September 29th. The one hour guided tour starts at 11 AM, and then you are on your own to have lunch, stroll the grounds, and browse the gift shop until we leave PROMPTLY at 3:30 for Whitehall. We travel RAIN OR SHINE, so be prepared. You may pick up a form and flyer at the library and mail it to ENZO Travel before September 15, 2018.
