This program is co-sponsored with Manalapan Township and The Veterans Affairs Advisory Committee of Manalapan (VAAC), who have created the Center for Veterans at Manalapan to help veterans - from any era - and their families readjust to civilian life and deal with any lingering issues from their deployment.

Based on the investigative stories in "Ghosthunting New Jersey" (2008) and "Ghosthunting New York City" (2010), part of America's Haunted Road Trip series, L'Aura Hladik Hoffman has updates on some of her favorite sites.

Hear what experiences have occurred at these famously haunted locales since the books were published.  Prepare for a spooky evening of detailed ghost stories as L'Aura provides the audience with news and stories not contained in the books.  Come out for a frightfully interesting evening!


L'Aura Hladik Hoffman, of the New Jersey Ghost Hunters Society, NJ's largest paranormal investigating and training organization, successfully crams into each presentation her 20+ years' experience as a ghost hunter, researcher and author.  Along with her humor and animated delivery, the time flies by and people leave the presentation commenting about the fun they had and how they plan on sleeping with the lights on!

The Battle of Brooklyn was the largest battle of the American Revolutionary War and took place just six weeks after the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

Taking place on August 27, 1776, it resulted in a crushing defeat for George Washington and the Continental Army, and could have ended the American Revolution, if not for some providential circumstances.  It was the Continental Army's perseverance through unimaginable difficulties that allowed our forces to turn the tables on the British only four months later in Trenton, NJ.

This one-hour talk with many illustrative images, describes the background, details, and effects of the battle on a pivotal point in U.S. history.

This lecture will be presented by Barry Singer, who has followed his passion for history by teaching at Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Rutgers University, Historical Society of Princeton, and other venues.

Come join us for folk dancing at the library!  Selected folk dances will be taught and audience participation is encouraged.  

Folk dancing is a wonderful, joyful and uplifting way to exercise, socialize and communicate.  The melodies to which we move are breathtakingly beautiful.  The dances we do are from cultures around the world including Albania, Armenia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Turkey, Ukraine, and more.

We dance in circles, lines, couples and sets.  No partners or previous dance experience is necessary.  We recommend dressing casually and wearing comfortable shoes.  

Presented by Charles Gross and Walter Kasian of the Monmouth Folk Dancers. 

The Monmouth Folk Dancers dance every Tuesday evening from 7:30 - 10:00 pm at the Embury United Methodist Church, 49 Church Street, Little Silver.   A small fee includes dance instruction and light refreshments. The group is varied and includes singles and couples, young and old, a cross section of people united by a common love of dancing. 

See the display: Folk costumes, many collected by group members, will be on display in the library lobby for the month of October, and represent the original clothing from their country of origin.
