JERSEY CITY, N.J. January 8, 2013 – Today, The Jersey Journal released an article on NJ.com and in its print newspaper, entitled, “Jersey City music teacher , 61, charged with raping 8-year-old pupil,” and attributed Studio 676-held violin lessons and recitals to the programming from the Miller Branch Library.
The Community Awareness Series (CAS) produced the program series from Studio 676, featuring the violin lessons and recitals from Henry Granderson – a very important distinction, since no staff members from the Miller Branch Library produced those programs, nor is Mr. Granderson an employee of the Jersey City Free Public Library. Through his association with CAS, he is a vendor.
“Under previous library administrations, the Community Awareness Series has operated as a separate entity of the library system for two decades, which has made it very difficult over this last decade for current library management to rein in this library department,” said Library Board President Sondra E. Buesing Riley. “Over this past year, as board president, I have begun much more stringent overseeing of CAS, since it is a department of the Jersey City Free Public Library.”
