Events for Wednesday November 8, 2017


Assistive Technology iPads

Assistive Technology Program: iPad Basics


Wednesday November 8, 2017

A six week class for patrons 55 and older with a vision change. Have you heard about the iPad but are not sure what it is? Do you have an iPad but are not sure how to use it? In this beginner class you will receive an introduction to the iPad. In addition, you will be introduced to accessibility features on the iPad, such as Zoom and Voice Over (Apple’s built-in screen reader), to access the iPad. (Each class is 1.5 hours.)

This program is provided by The New Jersey Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired (CBVI) as part of the Library Equal Access Program (LEAP) for New Jersey residents 55 and older who have experienced a change in vision. The Commission supports FREE iPad and computer training classes through Advancing Opportunities, which will take place this September through December, at eight public libraries around the state, including the Morristown & Morris Township Library. 

To register & for more information, please call Advancing Opportunities, Assistive Technology Services, 888-322-1918, extension 501 or send an email to jnigl@advopps.org.  At the phone number, you will receive voicemail. In your phone message or email, please leave your name, phone number and the best time to reach you. If you have a cellphone, leave that number as well. Please be aware that there is much interest in these classes, so the volume of calls and emails will be high. It may take several days for your message to be returned.  Due to limited seating for these classes, only registered participants will be able to attend.

The LEAP program is sponsored by the NJ Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired in partnership with Advancing Opportunities and the New Jersey State Library Talking Book and Braille Center.

Michael Snyder

Rocks in the Garden: A Public History of Slavery in Morristown


Wednesday November 8, 2017
7:00 PM
In this presentation Michael will discuss the inspiration for his work and how he got started on this road of discovery. He will look at the various available sources and how he melded them into two cohesive studies. This talk centers on Morristown, but ventures out into the surrounding area to New Vernon, Madison, Chatham, and Hanover while exploring the interconnectivity of Morris County as a whole.

We will look at the slave owners and the enslaved, who they were, how they lived, how they were treated, the rifts slavery caused in the community, and the debate about slavery within the press of Morristown. We will also talk about how history is told, the marginalization of the enslaved, and the commemoration of slavery in the area.

This program is supported by the Friends of the Library.
