Event set for Library HQ on Oct. 12
FREEHOLD, NJ – More than twenty New Jersey history-related organizations have already registered for Archives and History Day at the Monmouth County Library Headquarters in Manalapan, organized by the Monmouth County Archives, on Saturday, Oct. 12.
“It is so important for historical and governmental organizations to get involved in sharing our history with the public,” said Freeholder Lillian G. Burry. “I encourage anyone interested in having an exhibit table to contact the County Archives as soon as possible so you don’t miss out on this great event.”
Exhibit tables for archives, historical societies, government agencies, local history collections at public libraries, and other not-for-profit history organizations are still available.
The theme this year is Prohibition in New Jersey and attendees on Oct. 12 are encouraged to arrive in period costume.
Marc Mappen, the featured speaker, will address a topic related to his new book, “Prohibition Gangsters: The Rise and Fall of a Bad Generation.” An exhibit on Prohibition in New Jersey co-curated by Dr. Mappen will be on view in the library beginning Oct. 1.
