Monmouth County Public Library Headquarters

MANALAPAN -It isn’t all books and book discussions at the Monmouth County Library. Nor is it all music and dance.  With libraries open at varying hours at various locations  and with full schedules offered online both for members and non-members of the system that contains 13 branches and 13 member libraries, there’s always something new, something challenging, and something different.

Have you tried the library’s daily virtual Yoga classes?  Neither library membership nor advance registration is needed to take advantage of this program in the privacy and comfort of your own home.

Yoga Master Steven Russell of Becoming Yoga suggests three sequences to help invigorate, focus and activate both brain and body. Each virtual session is approximately 30 minutes in length and is offered at no charge. His series changes throughout the month and may be found via the Library’s Website weekdays between 9am and 5pm. at

The Fall 2021 Virtual Yoga program presented by Yogi Russell, “Choose your own Path,”  accents ways to unwind through deep breathing and slow stretching, before advancing to standing poses that build balance and strength. A path of six different movements is offered in the series, including breathing, standing, on the floor, movement, stretching and stretching with support. Each of the classes is accessible 24/7, making it available at times of your convenience on the library website without any registration.

The Monmouth County Library Commission and staff are committed to being a community center, offering help to patrons in meeting their educational, recreational and cultural needs. They accomplish this through extensive collections, professional services, informational resources and innovative programming.
