Choosing Your Next Great Read – Saturday, January 30, 2:00 p.m. Love to read but not sure what to read next? Riverdale Reference Librarian Leann Lydon will give a brief presentation on tools you can use – both at home and here at the Library – to help you select your next great read.

All Over This Land: American Regional Folk Music - Wednesday, February 3, 7:00 p.m. Though society is becoming increasingly homogeneous, regional expressive variation still exists and reflects the strength of our cultural differences. Through live performance (and occasional tapes of “the real thing”), Saul Broudy, Ph.D., folklorist and performer, presents songs from various regions (such as Louisiana, Texas, Pennsylvania, California, the Appalachians, and Canada), and discusses how these songs help us identify who we are and where we came from. Sponsored by the New Jersey Council for the Humanities Horizons Speakers Bureau.
