When at all possible, please ask your teen to call, email, organize, and initiate!  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. Please note that the books in our teen sections cover a wide range of ages and vary in content and maturity level.

Infused with passion and dedication, By the Light of Tiffany is a one-hour, one-woman theatrical presentation adapted from Driscoll’s personal letters, historical record, and inspiring insights. This ‘virtual meeting with the artist’ showcases the vitality, innovation, and importance of Driscoll, emblematic of the role of women as leaders in the decorative arts movement.

Madhouse at The End of The Earth: The Belgica's Journey into The Dark Antarctic Night by Julian Sancton 

Meet the Author: Julian Sanction
Julian Sancton is a senior features editor at Departures magazine, where he writes about culture and travel. His work has appeared in Vanity Fair, Esquire, The New Yorker, Wired, and Playboy, among other publications. He has reported from every continent, including Antarctica, which he first visited while researching his book. Find a recent excerpt here: https://www.vanityfair.com/style/2021/04/exclusive-excerpt-an-icy-death-at-the-bottom-of-the-world

****************************

In August 1897, the young Belgian commandant Adrien de Gerlache set sail for a three-year expedition aboard the good ship Belgica, destination the icy continent of Antarctica. In Madhouse at the End of the Earth, Julian Sancton unfolds an epic story of adventure and horror for the ages. Drawing on the diaries and journals of the Belgica’s crew and with exclusive access to the ship’s logbook, Sancton brings us the story of human extremes, one so remarkable that even today NASA studies it for research on isolation for future missions to Mars. Equal parts maritime thriller and gothic horror, Madhouse at the End of the Earth is an unforgettable journey into the deep.

 Presented by Yogi Steven Russell of Becoming Sound.

Yoga offers your body and mind many paths to de-stress, to improve flexibility, to unwind. Deep breathing and slow stretching movements warm the muscles, while a  standing pose may build  balance and strength.  During Fall months, we hope you will choose your own path with movements from six of the most popular Library-video class series, offered by Yogi Steven Russell of Becoming Sound.

They are:  Yoga Breathing;  Yoga Stretching; Yoga Movement;Yoga Stretching with Support;  Yoga at Home on the Floor and Yoga at Home Standing.

These six classes  will be available 24/7 for you to choose your program  throughout the September. 

Access all Six Programs Playlist   HERE   on the Library's YouTube Channel (this is the link: https://bit.ly/MonCoLibraryYoga)  and/or access through the Library's website.

Come hear about T.J.'s fascinating - and funny - journey.

Addressing and Settling Issues Between Parents of Children with Special Needs

Presented by two of the original Founders of POAC (Parents of Autistic Children) Lawrence R. Jones, Former NJ Superior Court Judge and Joni Jones, R.N.

Please join Lawrence R. Jones and Joni Jones for a special presentation concerning the challenges of mediating and resolving issues in a divorce and other family disputes between parents of a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The process of separation and divorce can become legally complicated when involving parents of children with special needs. Topics to be discussed include issues such as parental disputes over diagnosis and intervention, custody, parenting time, support, special expenses, educational issues, and other relevant subjects, followed by a Q&A session.

The co-presenters of this program are longtime public educators in the field of autism. Lawrence recently retired from public service as a New Jersey Family Court judge, and authored the court opinion in the case of Rooney v Wall which addresses many issues relevant to parents, attorneys, courts, and mediators concerning children with autism. Joni is a board-certified nurse, an original co-founder of POAC and has presented extensively for over two decades on the subject of ASD.  

This session will be conducted on Zoom and is free of charge. Registration and internet access are required to attend. Register below to receive emailed information on how to access the conversation. The link will be emailed Wednesday, October 13 by 4:00 pm, after registration closes at noon.

Leave the World Behind by Rumaan Alam

A finalist for the 2020 National Book Award (Fiction), author Rumaan Alan weaves together a story about race, isolation, crisis and how much strangers can truly trust one another during a catastrophe. Amanda, Clay, and their children leave New York City for a getaway to a remote part of Long Island, only to have their vacation interrupted by the homeowners, who claim a blackout has swept through New York City. But there is no way of knowing if the homeowners are telling the truth. Leave the World Behind is a suspenseful imagining of the end of the world.

 Moderated by Rebecca Gokberk, Library HQ

Is it a crane? A dragon? What about a flower? Origami, the art of paper folding, presents infinite possibilities with just paper. There are so many benefits to origami. Studies have found that origami develops spatial perception, mindfulness, and being present. Additionally, the crafts that we make can be used as unique gifts for friends and family. 

Hello, I am Lily. I will be a high school senior this fall. I am so excited to meet you and teach origami! In these 45 minutes I hope to cover many different models, especially my all-time-favorite origami dragon.

This program is open to teens and tweens. Registration is required.

Presented Virtually by Medium Phyllis Mitchell

We are all intuitive. Interest, focus, and practice can heighten it. Medium Phyllis Mitchell will help us understand what intuition is and learn the methods needed to enhance it. Come and take a “Clair” quiz – clairaudience (hearing voices), clairvoyance (seeing images), clairsentience (recognizing feelings), and claircognizance (knowing) – and participate in other exercises that will help you explore your own intuition.

Phyllis has always been fascinated with psychic and medium abilities. Her grandmother read tarot cards and tea leaves, which made an impression. Having always been read by psychics and mediums, they told her she had great intuition. However, Phyllis chose a profession in accounting. Years later she took a class on reading tarot cards and her natural ability presented itself. Phyllis has been reading tarot cards as one way to help people solve issues, guide them on their path and yes, look into the future. She has also discovered her ability to connect with spirits that have passed.

This session will be conducted on Zoom and is free of charge. Registration and internet access are required to attend. Register below to receive emailed information on how to access the conversation. The link will be emailed Wednesday, October 20 by 4:00 pm, after registration closes at noon.

Early, in person voting site will be located  in Monmouth County Library Headquarters, Manalapan. 

Voting Questions? Call 1-877-NJ-VOTER (1-877-658-6837)

Following information is from the NJ DOS Division of Elections Website:  Earlier this year, historic legislation established in-person early voting in New Jersey. This law makes our state even more voter-friendly and strengthens our democracy by expanding opportunities to exercise your right to vote. This new option allows registered voters to cast their ballot in person, using a voting machine, during a nine-day period prior to Election Day. You can now choose to vote, in person, when it’s most convenient for your schedule.

Every county will provide registered voters with this option for the 2021 General Election. They will designate in-person early voting locations that will be open Saturday, October 23 through Sunday, October 31. Hours will be Monday-Saturday, 10:00 a.m.–8:00 p.m. and Sunday, 10:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m. No appointment is necessary.

Yoga offers your body and mind many paths to de-stress, to improve flexibility, to unwind. Deep breathing and slow stretching movements warm the muscles, while a  standing pose may build  balance and strength.  During Fall months, we hope you will choose your own path with movements from six of the most popular Library-video class series, offered by Yogi Steven Russell of Becoming Sound.

They are:  Yoga Breathing;  Yoga Stretching; Yoga Movement;Yoga Stretching with Support;  Yoga at Home on the Floor and Yoga at Home Standing.

These six classes  will be available 24/7 for you to choose your program  throughout the September. 

Access all Six Programs Playlist   HERE   on the Library's YouTube Channel (this is the link: https://bit.ly/MonCoLibraryYoga)  and/or access through the Library's website.

Although moderate physical activity is safe for most people, health experts suggest that you talk with your doctor before you start any exercise program.

Following information is from the NJ DOS Division of Elections Website:  Earlier this year, historic legislation established in-person early voting in New Jersey. This law makes our state even more voter-friendly and strengthens our democracy by expanding opportunities to exercise your right to vote. This new option allows registered voters to cast their ballot in person, using a voting machine, during a nine-day period prior to Election Day. You can now choose to vote, in person, when it’s most convenient for your schedule.

Every county will provide registered voters with this option for the 2021 General Election. They will designate in-person early voting locations that will be open Saturday, October 23 through Sunday, October 31. Hours will be Monday-Saturday, 10:00 a.m.–8:00 p.m. and Sunday, 10:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m. No appointment is necessary.

Presented by the Monmouth County Historical Association
Co-Sponsored by the Monmouth County Library

Attend at your own risk! Get ready for a bone-chilling, spine-tingling presentation on the most macabre, dreadful and eerie objects in the MCHA collection. Bernadette Rogoff, Director of Collections, will discuss the Hook of Death, post-mortem imagery, wreaths of human hair, and primitive surgical tools endured by our predecessors. See the museum at night; we won’t tell you it’s haunted - you’ll have to decide for yourself! Strange coincidences, footsteps, and ghostly voices...it was probably just the wind. Recoil at tales of the dangers of life in the 18th and 19th centuries. This is not a program for children, so keep the kiddies away...recommended age 14+.

This session will be conducted on Zoom and is free of charge. Registration and internet access are required to attend. Register below to receive emailed information on how to access the program. The link will be emailed Wednesday, October 27 by 4:00 pm, after registration closes at noon.

z_cust_teens.png Teen Book Review Society (TBR) - Earn Volunteer Hours by Reviewing Teen Books Download Event Info Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: MCL Teen Programming     mclteen@monmouthcountylib.org
   

Earn community service credit by reviewing teen books! The Monmouth County Library is looking for teens in grades 7-12 who would be willing to read a teen novel and write a brief review.

Age: Must be between grades 7-12 

Library Card: Must have a valid Monmouth County Library Card

Books: Must be of appropriate reading level. You can check out books from MCL (either virtually or physically)

Hours Given: 1 hour per book 

*Limit of books per month -  2 and must be published in the last 5 years

*Length: Min 200 Words, Max 300 Words*

Specific Information:

Written reviews should include a short paragraph summarizing the book, no spoilers, please! The next paragraph should be a critical evaluation of the book of your choosing and include your personal response with specific examples to support praise or criticism. The review should be spoiler-free, thorough, and engaging. 

Submission: Submit your review using our Google Form here.

Review Website:  Upon submission and staff approval, your review will become part of our review website.  Visit our review website here

Your review will need to be approved by a Library staff member before you will be given service hours credit which can take around one to two weeks. Book reviews need to follow the guidelines above to be approved and may be sent back to you if anything is missing.

Attention Parent/Guardian: It is highly recommended that your teen is responsible for all correspondence regarding the Teen Volunteer Program; starting with the review submission process and continuing throughout their volunteer service. This program strives to prepare your child for his/her first job. We feel that the more responsibility that volunteers have in the successful execution of completing their service the better prepared he or she will be to apply for jobs and enter the workforce. When at all possible, please ask your teen to call, email, organize, and initiate!  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. Please note that the books in our teen sections cover a wide range of ages and vary in content and maturity level. Parents and/or guardians have the right and responsibility to determine their own children’s access to library resources.
