Open Mic Night

The Youth Service Department of the Secaucus Public Library and Business Resource Center is proud to present the first Open Mic Night of the year on July 10th, 2015! The event will be open to all ages, with acts running up to five minutes in length. While all acts are welcome (music, poetry, stand-up comedy, etc.), we ask to please keep in mind that we maintain a family friendly environment. All acts must be approved in advance. This is a great opportunity to share personal work and practice performing. Come out and show us what you can do!

Open Mic Night will take place on July 10th, 2015, from 6:15 pm to 8:30 pm, with all performances occurring in the library’s reading garden if the weather permits. Speakers and microphones will be provided by the library, along with light refreshments. Sign up begins June 16th at 10:00am. Please contact Youth Service Librarian Lisa Ferzola at lisa.ferzola@secaucus.bccls.org or call 201-330-2083 ext. 4005 to sign up and register acts, which will be done on a first come, first served basis.
