In his beloved television program, Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, Fred and his cast of puppets and friends spoke directly to young children about some of life's weightiest issues, in a simple, direct fashion. There hadn't been anything like Mr. Rogers on television before and there hasn't been since. Along with archival footage, Rogers' contemporaries and castmates reflect on his legacy in this documentary. Directed by Morgan Neville."  Read more...

The Ties that Bind: How Race Relations Shaped Morris County and New Jersey, 1688 – 2018: Bethel Church Exhibition

The Ties that Bind: How Race Relations Shaped Morris County and New Jersey, 1688 – 2018: Bethel Church Exhibition
October 3, 2018 - January 5, 2019 New Jersey’s history includes enslavement of African Americans and existence of free black communities. Black and white residents either helped each other or stood in the way of equality and equity for all. At times, the fate of the black and white community was “tied” to each other. The “ties that bind” us together as a community can be tight enough to encourage cooperation, or too tight, leading to conflict. Explore how these ties existed and changed over time in Morris County and New Jersey and consider how those ties manifest now. Exhibit will be in the Library's F.M. Kirby Gallery  Read more...
