Until a Seeing Eye dog is ready for training, it spends its time with a “foster family,” a family that gives the puppy love, gentle guidance, teaches the puppy basic commands and exposes them to a variety of social situations they will later encounter as guides. You and your family (children and adults) can nurture a puppy to accomplish its special destiny. Featuring Jill Jaycox of The Seeing Eye in Morristown this talk will address the requirements and discuss the guidelines on how to become a volunteer puppy raiser for The Seeing Eye. Interested persons should RSVP via email to: rosemarie.yancosek@verizon.net. This is a joint program with the Morristown Area Responsible Dog Owners Group (Mardog).

Do you ever wish you would have been beside the players of the Mercury Theatre when they first performed War of the Worlds live on air and spread panic to the listening audience? Although there is debate as to the level of panic the radio drama caused, the performance raised outrage in the general public in the 1930s and also raised the profile of the Theatre’s director, Orson Welles. And it is still engaging audiences to this day. But now, library patrons will get their chance to see the radio drama in person as Raconteur Radio presents: “The War of the Worlds: a Staged Radio Play.” Fri, 17 Oct 2014 23:00:00 GMT http://www.jfpl.org/polCalendarEvent.cfm?Event_id=16488 Friends Book Sale http://www.jfpl.org/polCalendarEvent.cfm?Event_id=12301 The book sale offers a large selection of paperback and hardcover books.
