2020 Census Jobs

The U.S. Census Bureau is recruiting to fill hundreds of thousands of temporary positions across the country to assist with the 2020 Census count.   

Could you use extra income? Jobs for the 2020 Census offer competitive wages that are paid weekly.  Authorized expenses, such as mileage, are reimbursed for employees doing field work.  Temporary positions for the 2020 Census feature flexible hours -- a perfect fit if you are looking to earn extra money, even if you already have other commitments.  

Census results are used to determine your representation in Congress and they help inform how billions of dollars are distributed for hospitals, schools, roads, and more.  Help ensure that everyone in your community is counted in the 2020 Census.  Every 10 years, since 1790, the United States has undertaken the momentous task of counting its population.  This is your chance to play a role. 

Want to know how you can work for the U.S. Census?  A representative will be in the library lobby to answer your questions.

Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann

In Killers of the Flower Moon, writer and journalist David Grann offers an intimately detailed account of a little-known but devastating chapter in American history: the Osage Reign of Terror, officially recognized as a period of five years from 1921 to 1926 during which upwards of twenty Osage Indians were murdered in cold blood for access to their valuable shares of oil money. The Osage, whose reservation just outside of Pawhuska, Oklahoma, once sat atop one of the largest oil deposits in the country, and whose legal protection under tribal law gave each member of the tribe a headright (a share of the mineral trust), were the wealthiest group of people in the country per capita by the early 1920s.

2020 Census Jobs

The U.S. Census Bureau is recruiting to fill hundreds of thousands of temporary positions across the country to assist with the 2020 Census count.   

Could you use extra income? Jobs for the 2020 Census offer competitive wages that are paid weekly.  Authorized expenses, such as mileage, are reimbursed for employees doing field work.  Temporary positions for the 2020 Census feature flexible hours -- a perfect fit if you are looking to earn extra money, even if you already have other commitments.  

Census results are used to determine your representation in Congress and they help inform how billions of dollars are distributed for hospitals, schools, roads, and more.  Help ensure that everyone in your community is counted in the 2020 Census.  Every 10 years, since 1790, the United States has undertaken the momentous task of counting its population.  This is your chance to play a role.

From writer/director/producer Gurinder Chadha ("Bend It Like Beckham") comes the inspirational drama "Blinded by the Light," set to the music and lyrics of Bruce Springsteen's timeless songs. "Blinded by the Light" tells the story of Javed (Viveik Kalra), a British teen of Pakistani descent, growing up in the town of Luton, England, in 1987. Amidst the racial and economic turmoil of the times, he writes poetry as a means to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the inflexibility of his traditional father. But when his classmate introduces him to the music of "the Boss," Javed sees parallels to his working-class life in Springsteen's powerful lyrics. As Javed discovers a cathartic outlet for his own pent-up dreams, he also begins to find the courage to express himself in his own unique voice. Based on Sarfraz Manzoor's acclaimed memoir, Greetings from Bury Park, "Blinded by the Light" is a joyous story of courage, love, hope, family, and the unique ability of music to lift the human spirit. Directed by Gurinder Chadha. Starring Viviek Kalra, Kulvinder Ghir, Meera Ganatra, Aaron Phagura, and Dean-Charles Chapman.

    Contact:    732-683-8980   
   

The Ceramic Art of Meghan Burke will be on display for the month of February.  A detailed list of items and prices is available at the Circulation Desk.  

Meghan Burke, from Manasquan, NJ, graduated in 2015 from St. Joseph's University with a Bachelors of Art degree before traveling to several art residencies across the U.S., including: Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts, Byrdcliffe Arts Guild, and Elsewhere Studios. She is an avid animal lover, nature enthusiast, and novice gardener. After beginning her ceramics career as a sculptor, she found a love of functional pottery, using her passion for plants and flowers to inspire her hand-pinched and coiled pottery. She found her true fascination with wood-firing at Touchstone Center for Crafts, where she worked as the ceramics studio technician for two years. She now fires and finishes her work completely in a wood kiln.  Meghan currently resides in Pittsburgh, PA and works out of a studio in Polish Hill. Find more information about Meghan and her work on instagram @meghanburkestudio.

Wood kilns: The process of using wood to fire and finish pottery has been around since the 5th century. It is a primitive firing method and the results vary based on clay body, type of wood, placement of pots in the kiln, and firing time/techniques. Each piece of pottery that comes out of a wood kiln is a unique mark in time based on what has occurred during the firing. This means no piece is exactly the same; the flames and wood ash create different surfaces.  

When firing a wood kiln, there are usually groups or teams of people. Each shift lasts several hours and one is stoking or adding wood to the kiln continuously for several days. The kiln is solely fueled by wood and the kiln heats up the ash and flames move throughout the kiln, pushing its way through the pots that have been loaded inside, leaving its mark on them. As the kiln reaches its desired temperature of about 2,400 degrees Fahrenheit, the pots inside glow and the wood ash hits the pottery and melts onto them, creating the surface and glaze. Wood firing is a physically demanding process, but the results can be extremely rewarding. Each pot is a unique story from the kiln.

The Overstory unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fables that range from Antebellum New York to the late twentieth-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. There is a world alongside ours-vast, slow, interconnected, resourceful, magnificently inventive, and almost invisible to us. This is the story of a handful of people who learn how to see that world and who are drawn up into its unfolding catastrophe. Winner of the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

1 forever alone in a crowd, Arthur Fleck’s disconnect with reality is the origin story of the infamous DC villain who began as just a man struggling to find his way in Gotham’s fractured society. Longing for any light to shine on him, he tries his hand as a stand-up comic, but finds the joke always seems to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty and, ultimately, betrayal, Arthur makes one bad decision after another that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty, allegorical character study. Directed by Todd Phillips. Starring Joaquin Phoenix. Robert De Niro, and Francis Conroy.

This is the story of a handful of people who learn how to see that world and who are drawn up into its unfolding catastrophe. Winner of the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

    Contact: Reference Staff   732 431 7220 x7222   
   

Presented by the Manalapan Arts Council.

The slave trade started in the 1500s dispersing Africans around the globe. From South and North America, to Europe and the Caribbean, Africans brought dance to these new lands. As the freedom to practice some traditions was diminished, their dances merged with pre-existing styles to create new ones. Despite repressive laws within the slavocracy, Africans, and people of African descent, found ways to adapt their dancing and singing traditions.

On the African Continent, dance is not simply a form of entertainment. Dance styles vary across tribes and countries and are steeped in ritual and tradition. Historically, many tribes used dance as forms of prayer, rites of passages, celebrations of births and marriages; and for emotional communication, such as in times of war. Many tribes have dedicated persons who pass along traditional dances to preserve the authenticity of the forms.

Over time, the evolution of dance within the Diaspora has resulted in famous dances, such as the Lindy Hop, Tap, Jitterbug, the Twist, Reggae, Charleston, Modern African Dance, Capoeira, and Hip Hop, to name a few. These dance forms speak a common language and are used to communicate, to heal, and to remember. Many of these dances evolved into popular social dancing around the world, blurring the boundaries between races and cultures.

This event will examine some of the dances of the African Diaspora, enhanced by performances in various dance forms.

The Manalapan Arts Council is a volunteer organization dedicated to promoting arts of varying genres to the community.  New members with visionary ideas and the motivation to move them forward are always welcome!

Program is free. All are welcome.

Doors open at 12 noon. Seats are available on a first come, first served basis. We request that participants do not hold or reserve seats for others. Library staff reserves a number of seats for a limited time.

Celebrating Black History Month

Presented by Craig E. Uplinger, who will be joined by his wife and daughter, Jney and Mackenzie Uplinger, on vocals.

America’s Founding documents proclaimed equality and liberty, yet strengthened the institution of slavery. Tragically, this contradiction resisted every compromise and led to a Civil War. For a time, Constitutional Amendments eradicated legal barriers between Black and White, but then Southern States built a new one called Jim Crow.

In 1955, the citizens of Montgomery, Alabama attacked Jim Crow, not with armies or bullets, but with discipline, love, and the inspiration of a 26-year-old pastor. Join us as Craig E. Uplinger discusses how Martin Luther King, Jr. and the participants in the fight for civil rights provide the lesson that love is greater than war, and that lasting resolution can be found beyond every barrier.

Craig E. Uplinger is a teacher of United States History at Marlboro High School and a James Madison Fellow, as well as a member of the Phi Alpha Theta National Historical Honor Society. Jney and Mackenzie Uplinger have performed with the Phoenix and Premier Theatre companies.

Co-sponsored by Gary Matoren, in memory of his daughter Debbie Lynn Matoren.

Curious about New Jersey’s role in the abolitionist movement? How did the trail of safe houses and routes ferrying enslaved persons from the southern states to freedom in the North work? Presenter Alvin Corbett will provide an overview of the extensive network that eventually became known as the Underground Railroad.

Logistics, a term used in private industry, the military, and government, can be defined as the movement of personnel, resources and supplies.  Al Corbett uses his systems engineering background to explain the complexities of the Underground Railroad through modern technological concepts and social norms.  He explores the Underground Railroad as a secret network of underestimated people and resources that aided in the liberation of thousands of slaves.  Audiences will gain insight and a greater appreciation for the challenges of the Underground Railroad movement.

Alvin Q. Corbett, born and raised in Wilson, North Carolina, is a historian, educator and lecturer. Corbett holds a Bachelor's Degree from North Carolina A&T State University and a Master's from Stevens Institute of Technology. He served as Vice President of Board of Directors for the Underground Railroad Museum of Burlington County, NJ (2014-2017); has been invited to be a visiting scholar at New Jersey's Rutgers University, and is an active member of the Salem and Camden County, NJ Historical Societies. Corbett also served as Assistant Curator for the Mattye Reed African-American Heritage Museum on the campus of North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, NC. In 1984, Corbett became one of the first museum digital archivists in the country.

Mr. Corbett created, "Jack Sherrod LIVES!", an educational art experience showcasing Sherrod's evolution from a slave to a Civil War Union soldier, and ultimately, a free landowner in Wayne County, North Carolina. The program was created to engage the community in African-American history, to honor and preserve Sherrod family heritage, and to share the extraordinary life and legacy of his great-great-grandfather, Jack Sherrod.

rec_potters_wheel.png Art Exhibit: The Ceramic Art of Meghan Burke Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact:    732-683-8980   
   

The Ceramic Art of Meghan Burke will be on display for the month of February.  A detailed list of items and prices is available at the Circulation Desk.  

Meghan Burke, from Manasquan, NJ, graduated in 2015 from St. Joseph's University with a Bachelors of Art degree before traveling to several art residencies across the U.S., including: Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts, Byrdcliffe Arts Guild, and Elsewhere Studios. She is an avid animal lover, nature enthusiast, and novice gardener. After beginning her ceramics career as a sculptor, she found a love of functional pottery, using her passion for plants and flowers to inspire her hand-pinched and coiled pottery. She found her true fascination with wood-firing at Touchstone Center for Crafts, where she worked as the ceramics studio technician for two years. She now fires and finishes her work completely in a wood kiln.  Meghan currently resides in Pittsburgh, PA and works out of a studio in Polish Hill. Find more information about Meghan and her work on instagram @meghanburkestudio.

Wood kilns: The process of using wood to fire and finish pottery has been around since the 5th century. It is a primitive firing method and the results vary based on clay body, type of wood, placement of pots in the kiln, and firing time/techniques. Each piece of pottery that comes out of a wood kiln is a unique mark in time based on what has occurred during the firing. This means no piece is exactly the same; the flames and wood ash create different surfaces.  

When firing a wood kiln, there are usually groups or teams of people. Each shift lasts several hours and one is stoking or adding wood to the kiln continuously for several days. The kiln is solely fueled by wood and the kiln heats up the ash and flames move throughout the kiln, pushing its way through the pots that have been loaded inside, leaving its mark on them. As the kiln reaches its desired temperature of about 2,400 degrees Fahrenheit, the pots inside glow and the wood ash hits the pottery and melts onto them, creating the surface and glaze. Wood firing is a physically demanding process, but the results can be extremely rewarding. Each pot is a unique story from the kiln.

This calming and moving poetic experience will be guided by Poet Flora Higgins.

“Whittier took one pastoral incident, a snow storm, and skillfully used it to offer a vibrant variety of themes. According to Edward Wagenknecht, ‘Whittier also vividly recaptured past experiences and revealed the beauty of common things,’” (Robert K. Johnson 1994).

“James Greenleaf Whittier was a distinguished American poet, whose writings breathed the purest spirituality, patriotism, and humanity. There is no poet of the time who dwells nearer the hearts of the people. His name is beloved and venerated,” (N.D. Thompson 1883).

With Paul Ianizzotto on vocals, Jeff Bavaro on lead guitar, Rich Solomon on bass, and Kevin Crouse on Drums, their blend is blues, rock, tone, and soul.

Officially formed in 2016, influenced by 70’s rock, they discovered that all songs incorporated elements of blues music. Inspired, FEB became invested in the Real Blues, starting with the 3 Kings – Albert, BB, and Freddie – changing the way they listened to and performed their music.

Forever alone in a crowd, Arthur Fleck’s disconnect with reality is the origin story of the infamous DC villain who began as just a man struggling to find his way in Gotham’s fractured society. Longing for any light to shine on him, he tries his hand as a stand-up comic, but finds the joke always seems to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty and, ultimately, betrayal, Arthur makes one bad decision after another that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty, allegorical character study. Directed by Todd Phillips. Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, and Francis Conroy.
