Miller Branch Presents Play Written & Directed by Former Member of Kool & The Gang
JERSEY CITY, N.J. June 5, 2013 – As a backup singer in one of pop music’s most beloved bands, Jersey City’s Kool & The Gang, Renee Connell Walker may not be as well-known as the band.

The journey of enlightenment sometimes begins in the dark, but in this new play by Ms. Walker, just the glow of a candle can help lighten the way.
The Miller Branch Library, 489 Bergen Avenue in Jersey City, will offer the live stage play, The Candle Party, on Saturday, June 29, at 1 p.m.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. May 13, 2013 – The Jersey City Free Public Library, in special collaboration with Curious Matter Gallery, invites the public to a joint art exhibit, named, A TIME IN ARCADIA, a collection of works that gather inspiration from our botanical world.
On display at Curious Matter and the Jersey City Free Public Library is a two part collection of works by 33 contemporary artists. In addition, the library has created a bibliography featuring nearly 200 selections from the Main Library's six Departments and the Library's nine Branches.
“We dream of Arcadia. Whether it's called Eden or Shangri-la, we long for a verdant and fecund place where food comes without toil and peace fills our days. A Time in Arcadia is an exploration of plants, gardens and how we cultivate the earth,” said Raymond Mingst, co-owner of Curious Matter Gallery. “The Library loves this interactive idea. The public can see and use our beautiful books,” added Library Director Priscilla Gardner.
J Room Hosts 4/27 Presentation from 2 Authors on the Famous NJ Lindbergh Kidnapping
JERSEY CITY, N.J. April 23, 2013 – While the Great Depression gripped the nation, the Lindbergh Kidnapping Case jockeyed for position as the Big Story.
In many ways, the Lindbergh kidnapping won its place in the annuals of history, including inspiring the Federal Kidnapping Act, commonly called the “Lindbergh Law,” making it a Federal crime to transport a kidnapping victim across state lines.
Two experts on the Lindbergh kidnapping – Mark Falzini and James Davidson – will present on the book they co-authored, New Jersey's Lindbergh Kidnapping and Trial, at the New Jersey Room of the Main Library, 3rd Floor, 472 Jersey Avenue in Jersey City, on Saturday, April 27th at 1 p.m.
