Neighbors Helping Neighbors, a local career transition support group, presented a special plaque to the Cedar Grove Public Library on Thursday.
For the past year, local residents have been visiting the Cedar Grove Public Library once a week to help and support each other in their quests for employment. Neighbors Helping Neighbors, a career transition support group, is exactly what the name entails: members of the community who come together to share knowledge and experience to help each other find employment. Meeting at the library provides the group with many advantages, like using the library's resources to help members compose cover letters, write draft resumés and practice interviewing techniques. “People lose their job and think that there's no one else out there in their situation,” said Stewart Linder, founder of the Neighbors Helping Neighbors Cedar Grove Chapter. “We show…

With the new school year almost upon us, help get your kids’ brains working again with this fun, free daily email newsletter.
With back-to-school stresses piling up, Laura Overdeck wants to let children and parents in on a little secret: math can be fun. Really. Overdeck is on a mission to change the way Americans think about math — especially given that math anxiety has been tracked in kids as young as age 5. This is what inspired her to create Bedtime Math, a nonprofit that sends out a daily email with a math problem tailored to “wee ones,” little and big kids. Bedtime Math has been very successful in both Verona and Cedar Grove. “Families signed up for the program and got calendar of summer months and stars. They can go online and have math problem delivered every day,” said Cedar Grove Youth Services Librarian Natalie Cheetham. “They put a star on the …
