Library Commission Chair Renee B. Swartz honored at Archives and History Day

E-mail Print PDF

Renee Swartz at Archives DayThroughout the last four decades, Renee B. Swartz has been a true library champion and advocate – as she unceasingly guided the development of the Monmouth County Library, founded the New Jersey Center for the Book, and served both the New Jersey State Library and the School of Communications, Information and Library Studies at Rutgers University.

Monmouth County officials gathered at Monmouth County Archives and History Day on October 11 to pay tribute to Swartz's remarkable public service career. Freeholder Director and Library Liaison Lillian G. Burry presented Swartz with a special proclamation from the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders honoring her years of dedicated service and declaring October 11, 2014, as "Renee Becker Swartz Day." Freeholder Deputy Director Gary J. Rich, Sr. and Monmouth County Clerk M. Claire French, also in attendance, congratulated Swartz on her accomplishments.

The tribute was highlighted by the screening of a special video on the history of the Monmouth County Library, and by the singing of the National Anthem by Eliana Swartz, Renee Swartz's granddaughter who is a student at the Red Bank Regional High School's Visual and Performing Arts Academy. Library Commissioners Grace Abramov, Don Burden and James Gray joined in the celebration.

The video Four Score and Twelve: A Historical Retrospective of the Monmouth County Library, 1922-2014, followed the development of the Monmouth County Library from the
time of traveling bookmobiles and lending stations to the current Library which boasts 13 branches, 14 member libraries and more than a quarter million cardholders. Swartz, who narrated the video, was also its executive producer.

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.
