A Message from the Public Library on Banned Books Week

| No Comments
ALA_BBW_Poster_2010_sm.png

WHY ARE WE HONORING BANNED BOOKS WEEK?

We are reaffirming our belief in two democratic principles that we cherish: Intellectual Freedom and Freedom from Censorship.

What Is Intellectual Freedom?

Intellectual freedom is the right of every individual to both seek and receive information from all points of view without restriction. It provides for free access to all expressions of ideas through which any and all sides of a question, cause or movement may be explored.

What Is Censorship?

Censorship is the suppression of ideas and information that certain persons--individuals, groups or government officials--find objectionable or dangerous. It is no more complicated than someone saying, "Don't let anyone read this book, or buy that magazine, or view that film, because I object to it! " Under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, each of us has the right to read, view, listen to, and disseminate constitutionally protected ideas, even if a censor finds those ideas offensive.

Project Porchlight at Senior Center Saturday September 25`

| No Comments

Project Porchlight is an energy efficiency program delivered by One Change, a not-for-profit community-based social marketing organization based in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Our volunteer Board of Directors is made up of people from all walks of life who share a commitment to making climate change action accessible to everyone.

One Change empowers people to believe that simple actions matter and to make smart choices that protect the environment. Through award-winning energy efficiency campaigns like Project Porchlight, we make energy conservation accessible, relevant, and personal by engaging citizens, community groups, and municipalities to promote simple yet effective changes that have a global impact. From making the switch to more efficient light bulbs, to using water-saving showerheads and keeping car tires properly inflated, small changes really can make a big difference. 
Climate change is a critical trans-national, non-partisan issue. And making it possible for people to change light bulbs is just the start of the process of broad public mobilization.

We will soon start Friday Nights Out for parents who want to see a movie but have no sitter. We will have baby sitting services available at the theatre during the movie for a nominal fee.
There wasn't one person in Borough Hall during Monday's Borough Council meeting who didn't acknowledge at some point during the evening that community service, in whatever form it takes, is what makes Metuchen a great small town. With the added emotion from the surprise resignation by Councilman Richard Weber, this was a dramatic and tear-filled meeting, as various public personnel were commended for their selfless helping of others in times of need.

Mayor Vahalla presented proclamations to three police officers for their quick response to medical emergencies in the last month. Police Corporal Anthony Carroll, Sergeant Steve Menafro and Officer Joseph Keane were thanked for their response to serious 911 calls. The Police Chief James Keane also thanked his men publicly for their dedicated service and reminded the public about the 2-3 minute response that meets most emergency calls. A young man who was revived after a heart attack was in the audience and was moved beyond words by his good luck in being treated by these capable men.

The most intensely emotional discussion for the Council members was the resignation of Richard Weber, eight-year Councilman from Metuchen, who is giving up his post because of personal issues. Each of the other council members gave him their thanks--the Mayor announced that he would keep Weber on as a non-resident member of the Historical Society. Councilman Will Waldron called him a "great teacher and mentor." Councilwoman Sheri-Rose Rubin said that she wouldn't have won the election without Weber as her generous running mate, while Councilman Christopher Morrisson very poetically said that "he has acted like a gentleman . . . he has always had a way of being able to disagree without being disagreeable." Councilman Manley said he would be sorely missed, a sentiment agreed on by all on the Council. Weber's resignation will leave an additional spot open during this election season, but his vacated seat will be filled by appointment.

Metuchen Matters wishes to thank Councilman RIchard Weber for his help and friendship and for his dedicated service to our town and we wish him all the best in all his future endeavors.
