This Week at Your Library: November 13


Dear Library Member,

We are excited to welcome the Queens, NY-based  Korean Spirit and Culture group to present " The Wonders of Korea" cultural program on Sunday, November 19 at 1:30 pm.
The highlight of the program will be a Korean Wedding Ceremony reenactment, performed live by members of the group's Promotion Project. The program will also feature two short history and culture documentaries, and traditional Korean food will be served. This free program is suitable for all ages; due to limited seating, registration is required by calling the Library at 732-721-5600 x5033 or signing up here.
The group's presentation will offer a very moving and educational insight into Korean culture, and we expect that this program will be memorable for both you and the performers.
We are also offering several literary programs this week, including our final session celebrating  November's National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). The Garden State Speculative Fiction Writers (GSSFW) will host their fourth and final writing workshop, " NaNoWriMo Write-in: Half- Way There" on Wednesday, November 15 at 7 pm, lending support to aspiring novelists.  In addition, there will be a Poetry Workshop on Thursday, November 16 at 7 pm where creative individuals will offer feedback, constructive criticism, and new ideas to help make you more confident poets. Participants are not required to bring a piece of poetry, but it is highly recommended. Each person may bring one piece, no longer than three pages.

Have a spectacular week -- hope to see you in the Library!

Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Salle Labrouste, Paris

Most of the buildings located along the rue de Richelieu date back to the 19th century. Henri Labrouste was the architect who was entrusted with the responsibility of the rebuilding project of the Imperial Library in 1854.
Labrouste developed innovative choices to expand the facility, and primarily designed the new reading room and the central bookstores.
The Bibliothèque Nationale is famous for its modernism and design ingenuity; its architecture was copied everywhere around the world.
