Great Middles of Films

The Teaneck Public Library Friday Morning Group will host a program on May 29, 2015 at 10:30 A.M., as part of the Teaneck Public Library’s Isabelle & Sol Hermalyn Lecture Series.

Is it a bridge between the early story and a dramatic conclusion?  Is it an elaboration of the main story or an offshoot to keep the audience’s attention?  Has the director kept faith with what the audience has been led to believe?  From “The Kid,” “Network,” “Jaws” and “All Quiet on the Western Front,” we will find out.  (read more)

June Gallery Display: Artwork by Teaneck resident, Laurie Ludmer

During the month of June, The Teaneck Library gallery presents artwork by Teaneck resident, Laurie Ludmer. Ludmer has lived in Teaneck for twenty four years with her husband, where they have raised their three children.   She is a retired dance therapist and program director, having worked throughout her career with older adults.  Laurie has always been involved in some form of creative effort - dance, painting, drawing, writing, etc.  Now she spends her time pursuing her passions of sculpting and poetry. Laurie has studied abstract clay sculpting with Janet Muro at the Older Church School in Demarest, NJ.  Currently she is taking stone sculpture classes with Natalie Frier of the Art Center of Northern New Jersey, where Laurie is an active member.  Although she continues to work in clay, Laurie finds sculpting in stone to be an incredibly exciting and challenging medium. 

The public is invited to attend the artist’s reception at the Library on Saturday, June 6, from 2-4pm. (read more)
