Love seeing all the great events that are at this library! I have been watching a lot of virtual events and have enjoyed keeping myself busy. I had recently watched a 1993 film called Ruby In Paradise that was rereleased for stream on Amazon, Xfinity, and other streaming platforms. I was so surprised to learn that this movie is loosely based off of Jane Austin’s “Northanger Abbey.” After watching the movie, I was thoroughly pleased by how director/writer Victor Nunez captures the themes of independence and womanhood that Austen has in her novel, but creates his own story. This is a really well-made movie that I recommend everyone to watch! If you are interested, I watched the trailer on Quiver Distribution’s YouTube channel!
I wanted to fill you in on a therapeutic book club that I am planning on getting up and running starting in January 2021. Below are the relevant details to anyone that you feel may benefit: What: Therapeutic Book Club with Alex Theordor, LCSW, CBIS, CCTP Who: Available to any adults in the state of New Jersey. Ideal for individuals motivated for change and wanting to build a network of positive support within the group. When: Weekly meetings at a date/time TBD. Group session is 75-minutes. Price: $40/group Where: Online! Why: Focus of the group is to create resilience & foster growth through the use of books. Fiction, non-fiction, and self-help will be used over the course of the year. How: All attendees will be advised beforehand what book the group is focused on for the month. I will divide the book into thirds and create journaling prompts and group discussion in order to aid participants in implementing the values/teachings of the book into their everyday lives. The last week is dedicated to processing the book as a whole, offering feedback, and exploring ways to sustain lessons learned. Interested individuals can join the waitlist by emailing [email protected] or if they have questions to call me at 908-379-8110.

We love our local libraries and hope it's ok to post this here. Friends in/near Woodbridge, NJ and Port Reading, NJ: Please help find this sweet kitty! Dunbi escaped his carrier Oct. 5 in the parking lot at the Thomas Edison Service Area (rest stop) on I-95 southbound side, mile marker 92. He most likely went towards the wooded area, heading towards the houses on Port Reading Ave. His family is heartbroken and needs help finding him. Please report any possible sightings or new cats in the area to this page https://www.facebook.com/helpfindDUNBI (This is not my cat, I'm sharing this for Dunbi's family.)
Thank you for our craft
