Monmouth County Library honored for The Big Read

Freeholder recognition for Big Read award


The Monmouth County Library's 2013 program, The Big Read, was recognized by the New Jersey State Library with an award for multicultural programming.

The Monmouth County Library was one of three New Jersey libraries honored with this award "for conducting outstanding multicultural programs to engage cultural and ethnic communities in meaningful and effective partnerships" according to New Jersey State Librarian Mary Chute. The award was announced during a breakfast at the New Jersey Library Association Annual Conference, on June 4.

The Monmouth County Library was proud to partner with The Center for Holocaust, Human Rights & Genocide Education (Chhange) at Brookdale Community College for The Big Read.

The book that Chhange selected for The Big Read discussion was A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest Gaines, which takes place in the segregated South and is the tale of a man who is incarcerated and executed for a crime that he did not commit.


Original Monuments Man to speak at Marlboro Library on July 14

E-mail Print PDF


Meet Harry Ettlinger -- a real World War II "Monuments Man" -- at the Marlboro Library on Monday, July 14 at 2 p.m.

This event is free but tickets are required, and are limited to 2 tickets per family. Pick up your free tickets at the Marlboro Library, 1 Library Court and Wyncrest Drive, beginning July 7. 

As a soldier in the United States Army during World War II, Ettlinger spent a year and a half as part of the Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives Program, nicknamed the "Monuments Men," whose mission it was to save cultural treasures from the frontlines and return looted artworks to rightful owners.

The unit became famous decades later, first with the Monuments Men book by Robert M. Edsel, and then with the movie released earlier this year starring George Clooney, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett and John Goodman.

Hundreds of Monmouth County Library patrons entered the free drawing for the Sony eReaders during April, part of the Library's promotion for the county-wide Food Drive. Winners were drawn at random from entries at all Library Branches.

The eReaders are compatible with the Monmouth County Library's own Library on the Go! collection of eBooks.

The Monmouth County Library Commission took time to congratulate two of the eReader winners – Babs Halitsky of Marlboro and Gilda Meier of Manalapan. Other winners are shown below – click on the Library's Facebook page for more information.
