Free Summer Meals for all Children and Teens at the Gerritsen Beach Library.

June 29 - September 4

Monday to Friday


This is the Board of Education Summer Meals Program.

In 1997, the library moved to its new 10,000-square-foot facility. A clock tower and two-story picture window overlooking the Shell Bank Channel, reflect the character of this waterfront community. Its two large gardens are tended by the same active community groups that have supported the library for the past 65 years.
