MentorNJ Technology Meet-up

Date & Time

Meetup Description

Registration is now open for the MentorNJ Technology Meetups for the first half of 2019!

MentorNJ Meetups are an opportunity for interested library staff, at any level, to get together informally and discuss issues, ask questions, seek guidance, and learn more about various different topics related to libraries and library work. These particular meetups focus on technology in libraries, so from ILS systems, to social media, to IT issues, to makerspaces, to workshops and tech sessions, and much more, any topic related to technology and libraries is fair game.

All meeting notes are documented in real time and shared with attendees, as well as made publically available on the past meet-ups list (where you can right now find archived notes from all of last years meetings).

MESH Café & Overnight Respite

County (Counties) Served

Mesh Cafe

During the fall, winter and spring months, Montclair Emergency Services for the Homeless (MESH) partners with churches and synagogues in the Montclair community to serve thousands of nourishing evening meals for homeless and near-homeless residents of Montclair. The concept, MESH Café, includes not only nourishing food but also dinner conversations with individuals and families from our community.

The MESH Café evening meal program occurs nightly, Monday through Saturday, from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.  All Cafes personalize their delivery of hearty meals, comfort and inspirational conversation but often included with the meals are essential personal items, daily newspapers, live music, and wellness check-ins. From September to June,  the Cafes  feature an evening  meal consisting of an appetizer, salad,  entree and dessert  During the summer months of July and August,  the MESH Cafe operates three days a week (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) featuring a lighter fare of salads, sandwiches, casseroles and fruits. The MESH Cafes closes for vacation beginning the fourth Monday of August and re-opens on the second Monday in September each year.
