American Education: the History of Our American Schools
“American Education: the History of Our American Schools” is the program topic for Friday, September 11, 2015 at 10:30 A.M., as part of the Teaneck Public Library’s Isabelle & Sol Hermalyn Lecture Series.
Dr. James P. Kane will present a sometimes breezy and sometimes very serious, discussion about the history of our schools starting in 1636. He will examine the landmark US Supreme Court decision Pierce v Society of Sisters, 1926. In a lighter vein, who was John Harvard? Which were the early American universities? Why do we use the term ‘Ivy’ League? Why were early American schools painted red? Learn the answers to these questions and so many more – in a one hour lecture. A question and answer session will take place afterwards. (read more)
Crochet Artistry by Sara Jones
Teaneck resident, Sara Jones, is exhibiting her crochet work during the month of September 2015. Sara took up the needlecraft in elementary school. She finds crocheting a relaxing activity and tends to bring it with her wherever she goes. Like many crafts, crocheting provides an accessible, creative outlet, as well as, useful items. Sara has made clothing, afghans, and home décor. A particularly proud accomplishment has been her creating and donating baby blankets to the Englewood Hospital Nursery.
Many of the Library patrons should be familiar with Sara, a 13-year employee of the Teaneck Library. Among her responsibilities as a page at the library, Sara keeps materials in order and accessible according to strict Dewey decimal protocol.
