|Location||715 Grand Avenue
|Details||Hackettstown, N.J., November 15, 2012 – Centenary College Professor of History Dr. Raymond Frey will be conducting a book reading and signing on December 6, 2012. The event is sponsored by the Friends of Taylor Memorial Library and will occur at 7:30 p.m. in Taylor Memorial Library. Parking is available at the David and Carol Lackland Center at 715 Grand Avenue in Hackettstown. Refreshments will be available for purchase that evening from the Greene’s Beans Café at Centenary College, which is also located at the Library.
Dr. Frey’s new book, Centenary College, New Jersey, presents the college’s history from its origins. Tested by fire in 1899, it evolved from a coeducational Methodist preparatory school and collegiate institute to an all-girls’ school in 1910, later becoming a junior college for women in 1940. In 1976, Centenary transformed into a four-year women’s college. Men returned to campus in 1988 as the college became northwestern New Jersey’s only four-year coeducational institution, and in the 1990s, graduate programs and off-campus accelerated degree programs were created to meet the needs of a new generation of students.
