Hours Given: 1 hour per book 

Limit of books per month -  4

Length:  Min 100 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.

Your review will need to be approved by a Library staff member before you will be given service hours credit. 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.

Bound for Amerikay: The Irish Emigrant Experience with McDermott's Handy Premieres on Sunday, March 14 at 2:00pm

Join us for songs and stories about the times of Irish immigrants leaving everything behind for the fabled land of freedom, with streets paved with gold and untold wealth and opportunity.  Kathy DeAngelo and Dennis Gormley will perform from the Irish viewpoint, but in essence it is the story of every ethnic group who has struggled in their homeland against political upheaval and repression.  Though they have endured grinding poverty and racial or religious persecution, they have persevered to build something better for their children, with a new life in America.

Enjoy this concert of traditional Irish music on fiddle, harp, flute, guitar, banjo, and tin whistle with the award-winning duet who have been performing together for more than 40 years. 

A "handy" is a set of Irish tunes collected and titled in a person's honor.  Gormley and DeAngelo began playing Irish music together in 1977 after both were mentored by the respected New Jersey fiddler Ed McDermott, whom they named their duo after. They are multi-instrumentalists and have performed hundreds of educational programs at schools, libraries, festivals and community events.

Little Women (2019) (PG) – Writer-director Greta Gerwig has crafted a film that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. Gerwig’s take on the beloved story of the March sisters, four young women determined to live life on their own terms, is both timeless and timely. Starring Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Timothée Chalamet, Florence Pugh, Laura Dern, and Meryl Streep.

All This Could Be Yours by Jami Attenberg

Jami Attenberg explores what it means to be caught in the web of a toxic man whose actions affect a family for generations. "If I know why he is the way he is then maybe I can learn why I am the way I am," says Alex Tuchman, daughter of Victor Tuchman--a power-hungry real estate developer and, by all accounts, a bad man. Now that Victor is on his deathbed, Alex travels to New Orleans to finally unearth the secrets of who he is and what he did over the course of his life and career. As each family member grapples with Victor’s history, they must figure out a way to move forward—with one another, for themselves, and for the sake of their children.

Rebecca Freimann is a middle school special education teacher, who has also spent several years teaching Holocaust Studies to young adults.  Her inspiration for writing Family Tree: Rooted in Survival came after conducting eight years of family research.  Her family stories were never passed down, were never before told.  As she learned her family's fates, she realized that many followed their own paths and had different stories to tell.  She wanted to share all these stories and return the stolen voices to her family members.

Murder, They Wrote Book Discussion: Keeper of Lost Causes by Jussi Adler-Olsen

Carl Mørck was one of Denmark's best homicide detectives. Then a hail of bullets destroyed the lives of two fellow cops, and Carl blamed himself. A promotion to Department Q is the last thing he expects, until he discovers it's a department of one. With nothing but a stack of cold cases for company one keeps nagging at him: the vanishing of a liberal politician five years ago.  But she isn't dead yet, and Carl might have a chance to redeem himself.  The Keeper of Lost Causes introduces American readers to this top-notch Nordic Noir series.

The Resilient Communities: Libraries Respond to Climate Change is a pilot program of the American Library Association

Co-sponsored by the Monmouth County Library and Moderated by Donna Mansfield, Eastern Branch

Lucy Wilson arrives in Rowan County, Kentucky, in the spring of 1911 to work for Cora Wilson Stewart, superintendent of education. When Cora sends Lucy into the hills to act as scribe for the mountain people, she is repelled by the primitive conditions and intellectual poverty she encounters. Few adults can read and write.

    Contact: Teen Programming     mclteen@monmouthcountylib.org
   

An ongoing event, A Day in the Life of a Quaranteen asks for a written documentary of your life during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Entries can be essays, poems, journal entries, or written song describing your life, thoughts, and feelings about COVID-19. One to two submissions will be displayed in our quarterly teen newsletter.  One volunteer hour is possible per article for participants. Your article will need to be approved by a library staff member before you will be given service hours.  Articles need to follow the guidelines to be approved, and may be sent back to you if anything is missing.  

Age: Must be between grades 7-12

Library Card: Must have a valid Monmouth County Library Card. 

Service Hours Given: 1 hour per article submission upon library approval. 

Limit of two submissions per person. 

Submission: Please submit your article through this Google Form

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.
