Schiavo Library: January 2015 Newsletter

Schiavo Library: January 2015 Newsletter 

New Jersey Run for the Fallen: 
Every year here at the shore there is a wonderful tribute to NJ’s military heroes and their families. Last September the fallen heroes were honored during the 182 mile run from Cape May to the NJ Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial in Holmdel. Along the route there are hero markers. This year’s Hero Marker #035 (right here on this island) was dedicated to CPL Michael D. Jankiewecz. His home town was Ramsey, NJ, he was 23 years old, and “knew he wanted to be a soldier as a child.” He served twice in Iraq and had just left for his second tour of Afghanistan. For more information on this event go to their website: 

Food Collection Box:
Again this winter we will collect food for the local food banks. There is a lot of need in the area as you probably know from reading the news. Please take a moment to go through your pantry and see what you can contribute. Thanks!

Movie Matinees – Friday 1:00pm
Our Movie Matinees will continue throughout the winter. January will feature spy movies.

New Schedule for February:
For the first time the Schiavo Library will close for a short period during the slow winter. We will be closing for the first two weeks in February – from Feb. 1st until Feb. 14th. This will give us a chance to do some needed maintenance (painting, etc.). The library will reopen with normal hours the last two weeks in February: Tuesday through Saturday 10-4pm or 9-3pm.

Any questions, please call or email: (609) 486-6265 or 

 Christine Rohrman, Library Director
