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.
