The Avalon Free Public Library will be bursting with more than books in the summer of 2019. While you can still check out that steamy beach read or suspenseful spy thriller, you’ll also discover lively music, fascinating speakers, local history, and loads of interactive fun programs for every member of the family. Here is sneak peek beyond the bookshelves at the Avalon Free Public Library this summer. More

Another year has passed us by, and while some things have gotten easier – such as packing everyone into the car in the morning – other things have become progressively difficult. A toddler will love a carrot on Monday and melt at the sight of one on Tuesday. He will eat pounds of chicken nuggets one week, and declare Keto the next.

It’s warm-weather season and that means the release of all the new 2018 rosés, from all around the world. Rosés come in many colors, from the very lightest of pale pink to the almost purple-hued wines, and from the light, simple sippers to more complex food wines. The choices are vast and become more so every year. More

Summer nights are simply the best! Whether you are having dinner outside or hitting one of the area hot spots, everywhere you go people are just happy to be here. Whatever you choose to do, you need to dress the part and, fortunately, getting “dressed up” at the beach is easy. A cute sundress, like this Three Eighty Two mini, is all you need. More

I am often asked who my favorite author is. Honestly, that question stumps me every time. How can I possibly pick just one? When you are an avid reader, you turn to different authors for different reasons. If I’m in the mood for a “who did it and how do we catch them,” I pick up something by James Patterson. More

Some nights you just don’t feel like getting all dressed up. Fortunately, when you are at the beach you don’t have to! It would be nice to just hang out in PJs all the time but in case you want to make an ice cream run, or friends stop over to visit, you want to at least look like you put some effort into it. More
