"Symphony of Hope" The New Jersey State Youth Orchestra Virtual Concert 

 Available on Library Website   through Monday, May 31   (no registration needed) 

The NJSYO's Symphonic Youth Orchestra presents a program of classics by Dukas, Mozart, Mendelssohn, Bizet, and Dvorak.  Their dedicated students and faculty have persevered during this difficult time by meeting online each week for rehearsals, and by preparing video recordings which have been combined by their audio/visual team to create virtual performances.  Their program includes instantly recognizable classics like Mendelssohn's "Wedding March" and Les toreadors from Bizet's Carmen; the bubbly excitement of Mozart's Symphony No. 31 in D major; and lesser-known gems by Dukas and Dvorak performed by our talented woodwind, brass, and percussion students.  

We remain hopeful for a return to live performances in the very near future; but in the meantime, let the artistry and talent of the NJSYO's students, shared in this virtual format, brighten your day

A Ceremony dedicating "Endless Possibilities Through Reading" Sculpture  and the Commemoration of the Reading Garden  will be held-in person-at Eastern Branch Library in Shrewsbury NJ.

This will not be a virtual event. Seating is  limited. Social Distancing protocols will be followed. 

The beautiful art piece, created by sculptor Franco Minervini, was installed at the Eastern Branch of the Monmouth County Library in Shrewsbury, NJ. 

The sculpture was created from Indiana limestone and has been placed in the new garden. It depicts a book surrounded by a circle showing the endless possibilities libraries offer.

The sculpture was made possible through a bequest from the late Charles Raffetto, as directed by the Monmouth County Library Commission members. 

Much thanks to the Monmouth County Board of Commissioners, and the Library Commissioners for their generous and tireless efforts to have this statue installed for the beatification of the Reading Community.

"Symphony of Hope" The New Jersey State Youth Orchestra Virtual Concert 

 Available on Library Website   through Monday, May 31   (no registration needed) 

The NJSYO's Symphonic Youth Orchestra presents a program of classics by Dukas, Mozart, Mendelssohn, Bizet, and Dvorak.  Their dedicated students and faculty have persevered during this difficult time by meeting online each week for rehearsals, and by preparing video recordings which have been combined by their audio/visual team to create virtual performances.  Their program includes instantly recognizable classics like Mendelssohn's "Wedding March" and Les toreadors from Bizet's Carmen; the bubbly excitement of Mozart's Symphony No. 31 in D major; and lesser-known gems by Dukas and Dvorak performed by our talented woodwind, brass, and percussion students.  

We remain hopeful for a return to live performances in the very near future; but in the meantime, let the artistry and talent of the NJSYO's students, shared in this virtual format, brighten your day

Revisiting the Founding Fathers: Gouverneur Morris, the Forgotten Founding Father

Presented by Jennifer W. Reiss; Moderated by Donna Mansfield, Eastern Branch 

Gouverneur Morris is one of our Founding Fathers, a signer of the Articles of Confederation, and the US Constitution, author of the Preamble to the Constitution, envoy to France during the French Revolution, and a Senator from New York.  Morris was one of the most outspoken critics of slavery among the Founding Fathers and also argued for the right of people to practice their chosen religion without interference.  Morris was also disabled.  His left leg was amputated after a carriage accident and he was severely burned on his right side.

Our Speaker, Jennifer W. Reiss, is a PhD candidate in history at the University of Pennsylvania, with specific interests in early modern medicine and disability, and women and gender.  Her project, currently titled “Pity That So Fine a Man Should Have Lost His Leg:" Gouverneur Morris and the Nuances of Physical Disability in Early America, attempts to understand how Morris, the early American statesman and diplomat, negotiated his multiple physical impairments alongside class and gender expectations in the early Republic. Reiss has a BA from Penn, a Master’s in History from Cambridge University, and JD from Harvard University.  She practiced law for several years before she decided to return to Penn's graduate school to study  American History.

This program is part of Revisiting the Founding Era, a four-year national initiative of the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History presented in partnership with the American Library Association and the National Constitution Center, with generous support from the National Endowment for the Humanities. 

This session will be conducted on Zoom and is free of charge. Registration and internet access are required to attend. Register on the Library website’s Upcoming Events to receive emailed information on how to access the seminar. Registration closes at noon on the day prior to the program (5/17) whereupon access link will be emailed by  4:00 pm.

Through art and archaeology, learn about medieval foods and their preparation-including a recipe for roast unicorn!--in late-medieval feasts, as well as the rules and ceremonies under which these sumptuous foods were presented and the types of entertainment guests might enjoy. Works from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Met's Cloisters Museum will highlight this talk. 

Michael Norris of Armchair Art Tours received his BA in classics from the University of California at San Diego and his MA in classics and PhD in Art History at the University of California at Santa Barbara. He spent twenty years at the Cloisters Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and has lectured on trips all over the world.

Virtual Book Discussion: Who Tells Your Story?

The Splendid and the Vile by Erik Larsen

Moderated by Jeanmarie Kantor, HQ

The Splendid and the Vile takes readers back to a time of true leadership, when, in the face of unrelenting horror, Churchill’s eloquence, courage, and perseverance bound a country, and a family, together.

Historically Speaking, A Virtual Lecture Series 

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

Gary Saretzky presents 19th Century New Jersey Photographer: Gustavus Pach

The most successful 19th century photographer in Long Branch was Gustavus Pach (1845-1904), one of several brothers in the Pach Brothers, a prominent firm with more than a dozen branch studios in the Northeast U.S. Gustavus Pach began photographing in Long Branch from a mobile wagon in 1866 and opened a gallery there the following year. He is highly regarded for hundreds of scenic stereo views of Monmouth County. Pach also made thousands of fine portraits,and many of the glass negatives are at the Monmouth County Historical Association. This lecture provides a history of the Pach Brothers with an emphasis on the life and work of Gustavus Pach.

Gary D. Saretzky, archivist, educator, and photographer, worked as an archivist for more than fifty years at the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, Educational Testing Service, and the Monmouth County Archives. Saretzky taught the history of photography at Mercer County Community College, 1977-2012, and served as coordinator of the Public History Internship Program for the Rutgers University History Department, 1994-2016. He has published more than 100 articles and reviews on the history of photography, photographic conservation, and other topics, including “Nineteenth-Century New Jersey Photographers,” in the journal, New Jersey History, Fall/Winter 2004.

"Symphony of Hope" The New Jersey State Youth Orchestra Virtual Concert 

 Available on Library Website   through Monday, May 31   (no registration needed) 

The NJSYO's Symphonic Youth Orchestra presents a program of classics by Dukas, Mozart, Mendelssohn, Bizet, and Dvorak.  Their dedicated students and faculty have persevered during this difficult time by meeting online each week for rehearsals, and by preparing video recordings which have been combined by their audio/visual team to create virtual performances.  Their program includes instantly recognizable classics like Mendelssohn's "Wedding March" and Les toreadors from Bizet's Carmen; the bubbly excitement of Mozart's Symphony No. 31 in D major; and lesser-known gems by Dukas and Dvorak performed by our talented woodwind, brass, and percussion students.  

We remain hopeful for a return to live performances in the very near future; but in the meantime, let the artistry and talent of the NJSYO's students, shared in this virtual format, brighten your day

 Available on Library Website   through Monday, May 31   (no registration needed) 

The NJSYO's Symphonic Youth Orchestra presents a program of classics by Dukas, Mozart, Mendelssohn, Bizet, and Dvorak.  Their dedicated students and faculty have persevered during this difficult time by meeting online each week for rehearsals, and by preparing video recordings which have been combined by their audio/visual team to create virtual performances.  Their program includes instantly recognizable classics like Mendelssohn's "Wedding March" and Les toreadors from Bizet's Carmen; the bubbly excitement of Mozart's Symphony No. 31 in D major; and lesser-known gems by Dukas and Dvorak performed by our talented woodwind, brass, and percussion students.  

We remain hopeful for a return to live performances in the very near future; but in the meantime, let the artistry and talent of the NJSYO's students, shared in this virtual format, brighten your day

The Rope: A True Story of Murder, Heroism, and the Dawn of the NAACP by The New York Times bestselling author  Alex Tresniowski

Live & Virtual - Join author Alex Tresniowski to discuss his book, The Rope.

In the tranquil, segregated  town of Asbury Park, New Jersey, in November, 1910, a ten-year-old schoolgirl Marie Smith is brutally murdered. A black handyman and ex-boxer named Tom Williams is arrested for the crime, and quickly presumed guilty by the white mob that gathers around the town jail, ready for a lynching. But did Tom Williams really do it?

Occurring halfway between the end of the Civil War in 1865 and the formal beginning of the Civil Rights Movement in 1954, the Tom Williams case became only the third legal case ever handled by a new civil rights organization christened just one year earlier—the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, or the NAACP. The Marie Smith murder sits at the historic intersection of sweeping national forces—religious extremism, class struggle, the infancy of criminal forensics, and America’s Jim Crow racial violence.

The Rope also tells the story of Ida. B. Wells, the pioneering journalist, political activist and public speaker whose bravery and persistence led directly to the creation of the NAACP. The book traces of Wells' investigation of one lynching—and dramatic, last-second prevention of another—stirred the forces that ultimately produced the most powerful civil rights organization in the world. 

History and true crime collide in a murder mystery that features characters as complex and colorful as those found in the best psychological thrillers—the unconventional truth-seeking detective Ray Schindler; the sinister pedophile Frank Heidemann; the ambitious Asbury Park Sheriff Clarence Hetrick; the mysterious “sting artist,” Carl Neumeister; and the victim, Marie Smith, who represented all the innocent, vulnerable children living in turn-of-the-century America.

Gripping and powerful, The Rope is an important piece of history that gives a voice to the voiceless and resurrects a long-forgotten true crime story that speaks to the very divisions tearing at the nation’s fabric today

Alex Tresniowski was a writer for both Time and People magazines, handling mostly human-interest stories. He is the author or coauthor of more than twenty books, including the 2005 true-crime thriller The Vendetta, which was used as a basis for the 2009 Johnny Depp movie Public Enemies

Historically Speaking, A Virtual Lecture Series 

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

Kevin Coyne Presents Nathaniel, William and Bruce: Three Men, Three Centuries, One Town 

Local history is not just local – it intersects in powerful and surprising ways with the nation’s history, and its small stories can teach us much about those larger stories, too. Nathaniel Scudder, William Dayton, Bruce Springsteen – three men, three centuries, one town.

Nathaniel Scudder was a Princeton-educated physician who gave up his medical practice in Freehold to fight for the American colonies’ independence from Great Britain. He signed the Articles of Confederation, led his regiment at the Battle of Monmouth, and was killed by a British raiding party in the final days of the Revolution, the only member of the Continental Congress to die in combat.

William Dayton was a Princeton-educated lawyer who practiced in Freehold and was the vice-presidential nominee in 1856 on the Republican Party’s first national ticket, running with John Fremont of California. The runner-up for the Republican vice-presidential nomination that year – Abraham Lincoln – later appointed Dayton during the Civil War as ambassador to France, where he helped keep the French from joining the Confederate cause.

Freehold High School-educated Bruce Springsteen, descendant of Monmouth-born veterans of the Revolution and the Civil War, has chronicled the lives of Americans over the last 50 years in his songs and stories, and along the way has introduced his vast audience to the town he shares with Scudder and Dayton.

What can their stories – joined with all the other stories from this one small town – tell us about America’s story?​

Kevin Coyne is a respected journalist and adjunct professor at the Columbia Journalism School. He has authored several books, including the acclaimed Marching Home: To War and Back with the Men of One American Town, about six WWII veterans from Freehold. He has served on the Borough Council, where he helped establish the town’s Historic Preservation Commission and has served as Freehold’s Borough historian for over twenty years.

For all of these amazing accomplishments, Kevin can more simply be described as a son of Freehold. This gives him an innate understanding of local culture that goes beyond the archives and the books. He is a storyteller and he loves history, especially local history, which shines through when he speaks about it.

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.

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.

When you experience the loss of a loved one, navigating through the maze of emotion, making ordinary decisions, and finding a new rhythm to every day can be stressful and overwhelming. These workshops, led by Beth Stamp, support facilitator, may provide an opportunity to share experiences, feelings, and new ideas for moving forward.

Sessions will be conducted on Webex and are free of charge. Registration and internet access are required to attend. Register below to receive emailed information on how to access the discussion. The link will be emailed the day before the program between 3:00 and 4:00 pm, after registration closes at 12 noon.

Any questions?  Please email mcl@monmouthcountylib.org
