misc_usflag American Flag Disposal Box Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

The Colts Neck branch of the Monmouth County Library system has a Flag Disposal Box located in the lower level lobby. Proper disposal of the American flag is a sign of respect. It honors our history, the people who fight to protect our freedom and is an homage to the reverence for our great nation. When a flag is worn, tattered, ripped or soiled beyond repair, it is no longer fit to serve as a symbol of our country and should be retired and disposed of properly.

Please drop off flags during library hours.

rec_paintpalette02 On Display: Multimedia Decoupaged Bottles, Altered Canvas Art Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Reference Staff   732 431-7220x7222   
   
During the month of July, view decoupaged creations by Maribel Caragiulo and Noreen Franco,  a mother and daughter partnership of artisans.  They strongly believe in recycling materials to lessen our carbon footprint on the Earth. By altering the original state of a bottle, candle, jar, chalkboard or canvas, the pieces are given new life.  Various media products are applied to create different types of textures. The artists may use texture paste, stencils, tissue paper, cheese cloth, metal filigree findings, sea shells, rhinestones, beads, lace or feathers to name a few. These bits and pieces of elements enhance the beauty of the art work.

    Contact:    732-431-7220 X7222   
   

When Isabel meets Edward, both are at a crossroads: he wants to follow his late wife to the grave, and she is ready to give up on love. Thinking she is merely helping Edward’s daughter--who lives far away and has asked her to check in on her nonagenarian dad in New York--Isabel has no idea that the man in the kitchen baking the sublime roast chicken and light-as-air apricot soufflé will end up changing her life.

Dinner with Edward is a book about love and nourishment, and about how dinner with a friend can, in the words of M. F. K. Fisher, “sustain us against the hungers of the world.”

    Contact: Holmdel Library   732-946-4118   
   

This Program is presented by an independent Financial Advisor who is NOT a part of , nor recommended by the The Monmouth County Library, nor The County Of Monmouth. 

Frank Corrado of Blue Blaze Financial Advisors invites the community to join us for a discussion designed to inspire each guest to identify her/his own, personal priorities  in the context of living our optimal life -- right now -- not sometime in the imagined future.

Frank believes that our optimal lives are grounded in quality, not quantity, and, ultimately, a person's return on life is NOT dependent on their return on investment. 

Sharing insight gained through years of professional research and practice, Frank explains why, why it's important to make this distinction, and how we can take steps, right now, to feel more secure and satisfied with our lives -- every day.

There will be plenty of time for questions and answers during this event.

Bharatanatyam and History on Evolution of Dance and Drama

Bharatanatyam is a major genre of Indian classical dance, believed to be from the 10th Century.  Choreographer Nisha Pradeep will perform, then translate her movements into spoken words for us.  Ms. Pradeep  was introduced to the world of dance at the Nataraja Kalamandir in Kerala, India under the guidance of Guru Rajalaksmi. She did her bharatanatyam arangettam (first stage performance) at the age of 13.  Nisha has since been researching, performing, teaching and choreographing dance and dance dramas with innovative techniques and yet staying true to her roots.  She has spear-headed unique collaborations and has tried to make Indian classical and semi-classical dance appealing to a diverse set of audiences. 

Ms. Pradeep is the Director of Takajum, a company dedicated to promoting Indian classical and semi-classical dances.

Bring the peanuts and crackerjacks and learn more about why many think so fondly back to that first game.

This program is part of the New Jersey Council for the Humanities Public Scholars Project.

Dr. Stanton Green is a Professor of Anthropology at Monmouth University. He has presented on baseball at conferences and events around the world.

Unlike autobiography, memoir is based on the idea that everyone has a story to tell, a story that matters. Writing memoir asks that one awaken and be guided by empathy towards oneself and others. In this way, memoir prompts a journey of self-discovery that enables writers to gain insights into their past. Through lessons in the craft of memoir, the exploration of editorial revisions, and invaluable writing suggestions, participants learn how to develop a writing practice and continue their writing life beyond the session,

This program is being presented by Edvige Giunta, Ph.D., professor of English at New Jersey City University. Dr. Giunta has taught memoir workshops since 1997, guiding many writers through the writing journey. She has published several books on Italian American literature and culture and was featured in The New York Times and RAI. Her memoir, essays, poems, translations, and flash nonfiction have been published in many anthologies and journals.

DATE CHANGE DUE TO VACATION!

Plum Kettle does her best not to be noticed, because when you’re fat, to be noticed is to be judged. With her job answering fan mail for a teen magazine, she is biding her time until her weight-loss surgery. But when a mysterious woman in colorful tights and combat boots begins following her, Plum falls down a rabbit hole into the world of Calliope House — an underground community of women who reject society’s rules — and is forced to confront the real costs of becoming “beautiful.” At the same time, a guerilla group begins terrorizing a world that mistreats women, and Plum becomes entangled in a sinister plot. The consequences are explosive.

This book discussion will be moderated by Colts Neck Librarian Stephanie Laurino. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend, however registration is preferred. Stop by or call the library to reserve your copy of the book today.

DATE CHANGE DUE TO VACATION!

Plum Kettle does her best not to be noticed, because when you’re fat, to be noticed is to be judged. With her job answering fan mail for a teen magazine, she is biding her time until her weight-loss surgery. But when a mysterious woman in colorful tights and combat boots begins following her, Plum falls down a rabbit hole into the world of Calliope House — an underground community of women who reject society’s rules — and is forced to confront the real costs of becoming “beautiful.” At the same time, a guerilla group begins terrorizing a world that mistreats women, and Plum becomes entangled in a sinister plot. The consequences are explosive.

A young woman has agreed with her faithless husband: it’s time for them to separate. For the moment it’s a private matter, a secret between the two of them. As she begins her new life, she gets word that Christopher has gone missing in a remote region in the rugged south of Greece; she reluctantly agrees to go look for him, still keeping their split to herself. In her heart, she’s not even sure if she wants to find him. As her search comes to a shocking breaking point, she discovers she understands less than she thought she did about her relationship and the man she used to love. 

A searing, suspenseful story of intimacy and infidelity, A Separation lays bare what divides us from the inner lives of others. With exquisitely cool precision, Katie Kitamura propels us into the experience of a woman on edge, with a fiercely mesmerizing story to tell.

Vintner's Daughter by Kristen Harnisch

This riveting tale of betrayal, retribution, love, and redemption, Kristen Harnisch’s debut novel immerses readers in the rich vineyard culture of both the Old and New Worlds, the burgeoning cities of late nineteenth-century America and a spirited heroine’s fight to determine her destiny.

"A young French woman, determined to pursue her dreams, shows resourcefulness and endurance as she journeys from her home to America in a novel set in the late 1800s…the plot is engaging and well-paced. Wine aficionados and fans of romance and historical fiction will drink this in.”—Kirkus Reviews

Is your child college bound?  Please join us for this free educational college financial planning workshop that will focus on high school freshman, sophomores, juniors and seniors. We'll discuss the FAFSA form and all the other information you need to understand in order to maximize the amount of financial aid you are eligible to receive.  Even if your family is not eligible for need-based aid, you'll learn the best strategies on how to pay for college on the most tax efficient basis -- without putting a strain on the rest of your finances.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • How to increase your tax deductions and credits
  • How to choose colleges that will give you the best financial aid packages
  • How to send your child to an expensive private university for less than a state school
  • Which assets are taken into consideration when the US Dept. of Education calculates your Family Contribution
  • How to pay for college in a failing economy without relying on 529 plans, expensive private student loans or raiding your retirement accounts
  • How to get ahead by developing a customized plan to meet all the college costs you will incur as a family
  • How to lower your 'out of pocket' costs and get the maximum amount of money from each school

In the early 1900s, teenaged Sunja, the adored daughter of a crippled fisherman, falls for a wealthy stranger at the seashore near her home in Korea.

But there are other men who complicate his understanding: his absent father, Michael, who is being released from prison; his absent grandfather, Big Joseph, who won’t acknowledge his existence; and the memories of his dead uncle, Given, who died as a teenager.
