1 A Publication of The Newark Public Library Volume 18 Number 3, October 2007 Enriching Lives and Expanding Horizons Knight Bus NPL C heers abounded as the purple triple-decker Knight Bus, made famous in the Harry Potter books and films, pulled up to the Newark Public Library on a bright Saturday afternoon in June. Groups of blackrobed Hogwarts students could be seen everywhere. It s here! It s here, many shouted. The NPL was the only New Jersey library to host the Knight Bus on its cross-country tour of 37 libraries to kick off the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Nearly 200 eager fans had the opportunity to board the bus and share on video their thoughts and feelings about the Harry Potter saga. All agreed that it would be a moment to be remembered for all time. Making the day even more memorable was the group of enthusiastic Library staff who organized magic tricks, games and Harry Potter-themed treats to keep hundreds of patrons entertained while waiting for the bus s arrival. Several staff even heightened the excitement by dressing as Hogwarts faculty. Besides those shown here, dozens of other photos from this extraordinary event may be viewed at org/pages/programsexhibits/programs/ HP2007Videos.html.

2 The Director s Journal Wilma J. Grey, Director Education is often cited as one of the best ways for individuals to improve their circumstances: to succeed in a career, to increase earning power, to escape an intolerable life situation, or to help their children or loved ones advance and succeed. Public libraries have been called the people s university because they provide many free avenues of learning for young and old alike. The Newark Public Library is no exception; it has long been known for making available many programs and opportunities for library users to expand their knowledge in any fi eld. Preschoolers and kindergarteners are introduced to the world of learning through structured visits to the library such as those provided by a program called Learning About Me and My World, sponsored by the Newark Public Schools, which also sponsors Club Success and Saturday the Branches for school-aged children. Children visit the library to fi nd books, magazines and other materials to supplement their school studies so they can earn better grades or just to satisfy their fertile imaginations. In the summer, they learn about things that interest them personally while they improve their reading skills by participating in the Prudential Foundation Summer Reading Challenge. Teenagers and adults have a broad array of learning opportunities in the form of computer classes, English as a Second Language sessions, book discussion groups, lectures, and exhibitions. They discover a wealth of materials to supplement and complement their formal studies. They also explore our collections to fi nd out how to repair a car, paint a room, play an instrument, design a dress, cook an exotic dish, plant a garden, fi le a patent, publish a book, learn a new language, or to research any other area of information that will satisfy an active, inquiring mind bent on accomplishment. The quest for knowledge is a hallmark of our society. Newark residents have exceptionally rich collections of resources at The Newark Public Library that can easily be accessed and utilized for personal growth and empowerment. For more information about our collections, programs or Branches, consult our website (www.npl.org) or call Book Information ( ).

The Kids Unscripted Theater Workshop was a six-week summer program that introduced the participants to the world of the theater. Through skits and role-playing, noted Nicole Dilkes, Program Coordinator, the children developed their acting skills. One such activity was developing a story where each person added a word or sentence to continue the narrative. The workshops also helped to build trust, creativity and focus among the young people. Jennifer Ponton and Andrew Galuskin, theater graduates from Ramapo College, served as instructors at the weekly sessions held at the Van Buren and North End Branch Libraries. After the culmination of the workshops, the participants showcased their acting skills to a select audience at Ramapo College.

8 What They Said The NPL offers a wide range of free computer classes in English and in Spanish in the Technology Training Center, which is located on the third floor of the Main Library, next to the Victoria Technology Center (VTC). The classes are designed for firsttime computer users (such as Mouse Clinic and Typing) and for those with more computer literacy (such as Word Processing, , Internet, Creating a Résumé). At times we receive feedback from attendees that is very helpful when gauging the success of a class or when revising class material. Following are some of these comments and success stories. A middle-aged patron suddenly found herself without a job and in need of a resume and job-searching tips. Library staff provided her with advice and encouraged her to take our Résumé and Job Search Techniques classes. Afterward she was able to craft a professional résumé, and with her heightened interview skills, she was able to find a new job within a month of taking the classes. A young Senegalese woman, who understood only a little English and had little experience with Microsoft Word, came to the Library in a fluster. She had no resume, didn t know how to prepare one, and had a job interview in a few days. The VTC staff provided her with materials, and then helped her prepare the right resume for the interview, suggesting ways to phrase or highlight a certain skill. A few weeks later the woman obtained the job. An elderly gentleman was grateful to the Library for the training he received in an class. Now he s better able to keep in touch with family and friends without running up an expensive phone bill. A woman returned to the Library specifically to tell us she got the job she wanted in a Livingston Mall The Library offers a wide variety of computer classes. clothing store (in spite of her limited work history) because of the resume she perfected after taking one of our computer classes. Why not join us for a class and create your own success story? For more information on the calendar of classes offered each month, please call , or visit org/pages/computers/. Mrs. Sharon Rogers (seated) is surrounded by family members who congratulated her on being named this year s Honorary Senior Library Director. Sharon is a native Newarker, a worldwide traveler and a lifelong member of the NPL. Her special luncheon program in Centennial Hall was filled with music, laudatory remarks and wonderful gifts. 8

9 Thoughtfulness of Native Newarker Strengthens Robert Treat Fund The Newark Public Library is thrilled to note that Jean-Rae Turner, Newark native, author, teacher and historian, remembered the Library in her estate plans. As a result of her lifelong love of history and her longstanding relationship with the Library, she dedicated her $10,728 bequest to The Robert Treat Endowment Fund. Charles F. Cummings, Assistant Director for Statewide Outreach, established this endowment shortly before his death in 2005 to help preserve and enhance the Library s collection of Newark and New Jersey related material. Jean-Rae s thoughtful legacy gift will do much to bolster the Fund. Ms. Turner began her career as a teacher at Hillside High School and Jersey City State College, followed by a lengthy career in journalism at the Elizabeth Daily Journal and at The Citizen, a weekly newspaper in Hillside. She was a frequent researcher at the Library. Her love of the Library was also The day before our annual Book Classic golf tournament, the rain came down in buckets. On the day of the event, however, the sun shined on the links much to the delight of a group of enthusiasts who enjoyed a great day of food, fun, networking and a round of golf. The Book Classic raised much-needed money in support of the 2007 Annual Fund Campaign. The Library thanks everyone who made that possible. Additional photos from the tournament may be viewed at org/pages/programsexhibits/pressreleases/golf07_photos.html. Jean-Rae Turner Fore the Library! demonstrated by a long membership in the Friends organization. A prolific author of nearly a dozen books, Jean-Rae recorded the history of northern New Jersey cities, particularly in Union County. In 2003, she collaborated with Richard Koles and Charles F. Cummings on Newark: The Golden Age. A member of numerous professional associations, historical organizations and civic groups, Ms. Turner earned several commendations over the years. Among these awards, New Jersey Press Women named her the state s most outstanding newspaper reporter in 1988, and in 2002 she was included in the Newark Public Library s directory, Newark s Literary Lights. Legacy gifts such as bequests help ensure the Library s future. A lawyer can provide information on how to include the Library in one s estate plans. This thoughtfulness will enable us to continue providing outstanding programs and services for generations to come. Golfers such as Frank Ferruggia, Jeffrey Vanderbeek, Stephen Golia, Armando Fontoura and David Koch helped make the event come up aces. Doug Sarini, Robert Simonson, Paul Jaffee, Mark Landstrom, Darla Stachecki and Arthur Stern were all smiles before and after the tournament. 9

10 Grant Helps Organize Community Records This past summer, a group of Latino high school students was introduced to the world of local history archives. The Library s New Jersey Hispanic Research & Information Center (NJHRIC) partnered with ASPIRA, Inc. to implement Organizing Our Community s Records: a Workforce Development Project. This eight-week youth program was funded by the Verizon Foundation and supported by the Center for Hispanic Policy, Research, and Development (CHPRD).

For many the Challenge has become a family affair. One such trio of youngsters calls the Clinton Branch their library. They re the Andrews sisters: T Nasia, Tiquana and Kiyona.

Their ASPIRA s documents and identified historical records that may be donated to the Puerto Rican Community Archives at the Library. The students also participated in a series of workforce development workshops offered by Library staff on topics ranging from resume writing to creating multimedia presentations using Power Point. The courses enabled the teens to receive valuable training that increased their opportunity for success in a global economy. The Library was happy to initiate this youth-community partnership in 2006 with a pilot program that involved St. Columba Neighborhood Club. Pictured at the Community Records award ceremony are Yesenia Lopez, Stephanie Gonzalez, Erica Rozon, Frankshuas Rodriguez, Wanda Padilla, Brenda Santiago and Michael Serrano.
