Discover Ocean County Library: An Education Initiative is an ongoing partnership between the Ocean County Library and our schools. Our goal is to put a library card in the hand of every student and to better serve the curriculum needs of educators, students, and their families. Our librarians can provide professional development hours for educators. We can also visit classrooms to promote reading and demonstrate online resources for research and enrichment. These resources are free to access with your library card. Learn more by exploring the links below.
